MediaTek is already offering quad- and octa-core chips, but what about hexa-core SoCs? The still unannounced MT6591 has been caught at Antutu and we get to learn how its 6 cores compare with MediaTek’s other chips.
As one would imagine, this SoC sits somewhere between quad- and octa-core solutions, with an Antutu score of 23,600 points. In comparison, MediaTek’s octa-core chips can get around 27,000 points.
The MT6591 also rocks Mali 450 GPU, and is clocked at 1.5GHz, though a 1.7GHz model may also be released. It’s not clear whether this SoC supports 4G LTE connectivity, though.
