MediaTek MT8163 V/A 1.5 GHz vs Apple A6x

MediaTek MT8163 V/A 1.5 GHz

► remove

The MediaTek MT8163 V/A is an ARM based entry-level to mid-range SoC for (Android based) tablets. It offers four ARM Cortex-A53 processor cores (quad-core) that are clocked with up to 1.5 GHz. Furthermore, an ARM Mali-T720 MP2 graphics card clocked at 600 MHz, a DDR3x32 1600Mbps memory controller, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11 b/g/n, GPS and FM are integrated in the SoC.

The similar named MediaTek MT8163 V/B is the slower clocked version, with a CPU clock o up to 1.3 GHz (-6%) and GPU of up to 520 MHz (-13%).

The performance is situated in the entry level of 2015 and often similar to the Kirin 910T (see benchmark below).

Apple A6x

► remove

The Apple A6x is a dual-core-SoC (System on a Chip) with ARM compatible CPU cores (ARMv7s instruction set). Both can be clocked at up to 1400 MHz depending on the load. It is used in the iPad 4 and compared to the A6 in the iPhone 5, the A6x offers a faster GPU (PowerVR SGX544MP4).

The CPU-Performance of the A6x is similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960T, while the GPU is about as fast as the Adreno 320.
