MediaTek Helio X20 chipset

MediaTek Helio X30 to be manufactured with 10 nm process

MediaTek’s 2017 flagship chipset, the MediaTek Helio X30, is showing promise, according to the analyst Pan Jiutang. Not only is it delivering some interesting-looking benchmarking numbers, Jiutang claims that it will be built with a 10 nm process.

The MediaTek Helio X30 is apparently capable of delivering a very impressive AnTuTu benchmarking score of 160,000. That compares favourably against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 – a fact MediaTek are sure to highlight as they look to secure orders from device makers.

AnTuTu results shared by Jiutang assign the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 a score of 130,000.

The benchmarking results do not necessarily mean we should expect to see MediaTek going head-to-head with Qualcomm at the high end of the market next year. It is worth remembering that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is a 2016 chipset – the MediaTek Helio X30 will be up against its successor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830.
