MT6799 Helio X30 vs Snapdragon 821. Helio X30 Geekbench 4 results are here.
We first broke the news about MTK6799 Helio X30 about two months back. At this point, MT6799 has made it to the testing phase, either with MediaTek’s own engineering samples or through OEM manufacturers testing MTK6799 in their upcoming phones.
MTK6799 Helio X30 Geekbench 4 scores
Interestingly, the Helio X30 puts a decent beating on Snapdragon 820 in both single and multicore tests, and generally keeps right up with Snapdragon 820 / 821 except in a couple of cases where the Snap 821 beats X30 handily (See OnePlus 3). But, take a look at those mulicore scores where X30 puts a decent smoke show on.
Of course, the big difference here is that Snapdragon 821 is here now, and by the time Helio X30 is released to the public, Snapdragon 835 will be out.
What’s important to remember here is that any of these SoC, whether Snapdragon 820, Snapdragon 821, Helio X30, and indeed even lesser SoC such as Snapdragon 625 and Helio X20, will handle anything you throw them with ease.
And, it’s very interesting to see MTK MediaTek only a quarter behind the top dog Qualcomm.
