AnTuTu 9 Benchmark

The AnTuTu 9 benchmark is very well suited to measuring the performance of a smartphone. AnTuTu 9 is quite heavy on 3D graphics and can now also use the "Metal" graphics interface. In AnTuTu, memory and UX (user experience) are also tested by simulating browser and app usage. AnTuTu version 9 can compare any ARM CPU running on Android or iOS. Devices may not be directly comparable when benchmarked on different operating systems.

In the AnTuTu 9 benchmark, the single-core performance of a processor is only slightly weighted. The rating is made up of the multi-core performance of the processor, the speed of the working memory, and the performance of the internal graphics.

The MediaTek Helio G99 has a total of 8 processor cores, which are divided into 2 performance cores and 6 efficiency cores. The performance cores are 2 Cortex-A76 cores, which have a maximum clock frequency of 2.20 gigahertz. The efficiency cores are 6 Cortex-A55 cores that clock at up to 2.00 gigahertz. This division into performance cores and efficiency cores is also called a hybrid core architecture.

The Mali G57 MP2 from ARM is used as the internal graphics unit in the MediaTek Helio G99. This iGPU has 2 execution units with 32 shader units and can use up to 4 GB of the system memory. The iGPU, which has a structure width of 7 nanometers, has a basic clock frequency of 250 megahertz, but this can be increased to up to 1.07 gigahertz in turbo mode. The graphics unit released in the fourth quarter of 2020 achieves an FP32 computing power of 274 GigaFLOPS, with single precision.

The graphics unit is able to decode and copy the video codecs H.264, H.265 (HEVC), VP8 and VP9 in hardware. The iGPU can at least decode the AV1 video codec.

With the MediaTek Helio G99, up to 12 gigabytes of LPDDR4X-4266 RAM can be operated via the 2 available memory channels.

The MediaTek Helio G99 is manufactured with a structure width of 6 nanometers and was launched in the third quarter of 2022. It is based on the ISA instruction set ARMv8-A64 (64 bit) and is manufactured in a chiplet chip design.
