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.
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.
