Helio P10 Benchmarks Appear – Impressive Performance From A Mid-Ranged SoC


Earlier this year, MediaTek had announced its Helio P10, a mid-performing that chipset would be running an octa-core processor capable of delivering impressive performance. Now, the latest benchmarking results of the SoC have appeared, so let us see how far the company has come in bridging the performance gap between mid-ranged handsets and high-end ones.

Helio P10 Comes Close To The Performance Of Helio X10 – Benchmarks And Images Included

Helio P10, which is also known as MT6755 features an octa-core Cortex-A53 running at a speed of 2.0GHz. Additionally, it also features ARM Mali-T860 GPU, which will smoothen out the gameplay when the end-users are engaged in playing taxing gaming applications. Now, coming to the actual benchmarks, Helio P10 is able to perform much better than MT6752, which was expected given that the latter is running an octa-core Cortex-A53 at 1.7GHz. However, here is where things get quite interesting.

Despite featuring a higher clock speed than MT6752, Helio P10 is unable to beat the chipset in the multi-core test, which is rather strange. Given below are the comparison results between the two SoCs.

  • Helio P10: Single-core – 882, Multi-core – 3371
  • MT6752: Single-core – 820, Multi-core – 4491


Things get even more interesting when we start comparing MT6755 with Helio X10, which is present in smartphones like Redmi Note 2 and Meizu MX5. While Helio P10 is able to come close to MT6795 (also known as Helio X10) in the single-core test, the multi-core test is whole new ball game as the second fastest chipset from MediaTek displays absolute dominance over the mid-ranged SoC. Given below are the comparison results:

  • Helio P10: Single-core – 882, Multi-core – 3371
  • Helio X10: Single-core – 905, Multi-core – 5154

We expect that the first batch of smartphones sporting the mid-performing chipset are going to appear during the fourth quarter of 2015. Chinese OEMs are definitely going to love having Helio P10 perform in their mobile products primarily because it has been manufactured on the 28nm process, making it much cheaper than chipsets like Snapdragon 615 and at the same time, perform much better and keep its temperature under control.

Apart from showing impressive performance, Helio P10 also supports several other features, which have been listed below.

  • Support for a camera with image capturing resolution of 21 megapixels
  • Record 60 FPS videos at 1080p
  • Category LTE 6 modem with 2×20 carrier aggregation
  • HiFi audio performance
  • MediaTek’s MiraVision 2.0
  • Integrated TrueBright ISP engine with support for RWWB optical sensors

After witnessing the performance of Helio P10, do you feel that MediaTek will be able to capture more of the mid-ranged chipset market? Let us know your thoughts.
