You might have seen various sites posting how the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 with its Atom X5 Z8500 scores 85,000 in AnTuTu . Wow, somehow Xiaomi magically gets 35,000 plus points more than all the other X5 Z8500 tablets in AnTuTu? An amazing feat right?
No. It’s just typical Chinese publicity. It’s not fake, it gets 85k, but not in the current 5.7.X version but the new AnTuTu 6 beta! With a new scoring system… Just the hype Xiaomi wanted and sites posted it.
I ran the same test on my Teclast X98 Pro and got 81,000 in points and it has 2GB of Ram more than the Mi Pad 2. My guess is Xiaomi placed the Mi Pad 2 in a fridge to keep it cool to get that score? I’ll find out later this month when my Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Windows 10 version arrives. I got the Windows version so I can compare it with the Hi8 Pro, X80 Plus and other 8″ Tablets that all seem to run Windows 10. As there are no new Atom Cherry Trail dual boot 8″ tablets yet.
Amazing how now my X98 Pro scores as fast as an Octacore Samsung Note 5.
The Teclast X16 Pro AnTuTu 6 scores 82k:
