Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro leapfrogs to the top of Antutu charts after update
A certain Snapdragon 865 smartphone was launched yesterday, andt they were quick to boast about its Antutu score, which was the highest, at that point of time. Well Xiaomi wasn’t going to sit idly by, or at least the general marketing manager of Xiaomi China wasn’t.
Xiaomi has recently released the MIUI V126.96.36.199 update which also brought the latest GPU driver version 444. It seems that it bumped the performance of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro up a tad from when it was launched and he set out to proof that.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro was put through a benchmark run at room temperature, scoring 605 783 points in Antutu. This was a hair higher than the 605 327 boasted by the device launched yesterday, but they didn’t stop just there. As you may know, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro supports an active cooler which comes with a Peltier cooler to quickly cool the smartphone.
Yao Liang proved that it was a pretty effective contraption by comparing the scores achieved with the cooler and by putting the Mi 10 Pro in the refrigerator. The Mi 10 Pro with the cooling attachment scored higher (610 627) than the Mi 10 Pro in the fridge (610 008).
