Latest benchmark results on AnTuTu add more wood to the existing rumour-fire about a possible MT6592 octa-core processor from MetdiaTek that is optimised for tablets.
Earlier there were reports that the company was busy tuning its MT6592 octa-core chip to make it more suitable for tablets. A device dubbed “mt6592_tablet_p1_v1” was spotted on AnTuTu with a score of 28,904 points powered by a MediaTek MT8392 octa-core processor.
The prototype tablet that was tested featured a 1,200 x 800 display with 1GB RAM, 2GB internal storage, 5-megapixel rear camera and a Mali 450MP GPU. Just 2GB of internal storage does indicate that the tablet has been specifically made for testing purpose.
The original MT6592 octa-core chip is clocked at 1.7 to 2.0 GHz with ARM Mali 450-MP4 clocked at 700 MHz and can be combined with LPDDR3 667 MHz memory. MT8392’s performance is slightly better than the MT6592.
There has been no official word from MediaTek as of yet.
