Unnamed Mobile Device Shatters AnTuTu Benchmarking Scores – Can You Guess the Score
AnTuTu is always the ‘go to’ app when you want to gain bragging rights for your smartphone and/or tablet. The higher the number of points your device accumulates while running through the benchmarking, the higher the ranking in the leaderboards. There was only so much a device could obtain while running a Snapdragon 820 or even an Exynos 8890, but according to a leak, a mysterious, unnamed device has managed to shatter the AnTuTu benchmarking records with a brand new score.
Unnamed Device Manages to Cross the 200,000 Point Mark in AnTuTu – What Sort of Hardware Specifications Would Be Running Underneath the Hood?
Before we proceed with this, we want you to take everything we tell you with a grain of salt. Since there has been no device unnamed that can reach this score, it could mean one of two things. It could either be a prototype running unreleased hardware, or someone must have tampered with the scores, which isn’t a really difficult thing to do.
According to a series of tests conducted, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus crossed the 170,000 point mark and we all know how powerful that phablet is. As stated before, we have all heard rumors about the Snapdragon 830, which is going to be manufactured on the 10nm FinFET architecture, along with the new Exynos SoC armed with a new Mali GPU. The Mali-G71 could finally get the better of Qualcomm’s Adreno series as according to the British chip designer, it up to 1.8 times as powerful as the Mali-T880 MP12 GPU used in the Exynos 8890-powered Galaxy S7.

The Mali-G71 GPU uses the ARM’s brand new Bifrost architecture, which is claimed to offer high-end 4K and VR experiences. It is also compatible with Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.2, GPU Compute, and Android RenderScript. ARM Mali-G71 is said to be running at a base clock speed of 850MHz, and the 16nm GPU can provide a throughput of 27.2Gpix/s, which is double than that of the Mali-T880 GPU running at the same frequency. It is possible that a prototype version of Galaxy S8 could be used for benchmarking purposes, but at the same time, the unnamed device have also used MediaTek’s Helio X30.
There’s no way to be sure at this current time, which is why we suggested that you take this news with a grain of salt. Hopefully, when the year draws to a close, we’d have gained more insight in the matter.
