When Antutu 5.0 was released, it added some new tests such a single thread performance, and revamped its 2D and 3D graphics test among others, and that meant the new scores were could not be compared to Antutu 4.x. If you now download Antutu from the play store, you’ll get Antutu 6.0 and Antutu 3DBench apps, which handle the 3D graphics test separately.
I can confirm Antutu 6.0 scores cannot be compared with Antutu 5.x ones, as Tronsmart Vega S95 Telos TV box got 36,741 points in Antutu 6.0, while typically competitors achieved 28,000 to 29,000 points in Antutu 5.7.1.
There are now 4 main section in the benchmark: 3D, UX, CPU and RAM, so the details are much different. One neatr featuer is the QR core of the result, which allows you to keep a link with the complete result, in this case: http://antutu.com/qr/?c=18af306ecb85f6d42df2d4a1285d10eed87bf15e.
And if we do look at details runtime, 2D graphics, single-thread float and integer tests are all gone, hidden instead in some UX and other CPU mathematics and common use benchmarks. One of the 3D graphics benchmarks, the off-Screen Marooned (孤立) test, refused to run on the platform possibly because on of the required API was not supported by the drivers or Mali-450MP GPU.
The rankings bar charts are gone, and instead you can compare devices side-by-side.
Antutu wrote a post about Antutu 6.0 new features, and included a comparison table showing the differences in scores between Antutu 6.0 and Antutu 5.x for popular devices.
as well as a bar chart with the Antutu 6.0 scores for the most common processors.
So the most important take away here is that older scores can’t be compared to the ones obtained with Antutu 6.0.

You need to distinguish between the Tegra T124 (32-bit) and T132 (64-bit) versions of the Tegra K1. The GPU for both SoC’s is the GK20A.
My slightly-overlocked Shield Tablet scored 87864 on this new version of Antutu, which means this year-old tablet is still in the top 5 of both lists in this article 🙂
I am going to get my nvidia shield k1 soon, Awesome to hear it still scores so high.. But how do you overclock it? Is it a mode you are setting it in? Or are you manually overclocking with root?
I am gonna run the antutu benchmark as soon as I have my shield
