Galaxy S III quad-core benchmarks blow us away [Video]

Oh yeah! We couldn't forget benchmarks for the newest superphone flagship from Samsung could we? Now that Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S III with its quad-core Exynos 1.4 GHz processor we decided to run a quick benchmark just for comparison sakes. Once we get our paws on it longer we'll have some in depth results but for now check out the results below.

Running a quick Quadrant Advanced, since it's the most popular app, we saw an impressive average score of 5642 thanks to that quad-core processor, and once topping 5700 - WOW! The most impressive number is that input/output as that is one of the more important results, coming in at 7606. Just as comparison the dual-core AT&T HTC One X scored around 4900 from these results and occasionally over 5000, while the Tegra 3 quad-core version managed around 4800 on average.

Obviously benchmarks aren't everything, and the HTC One series, particularly the X is extremely impressive but it appears that Samsung has a real winner here. Once again taking the top spot for the benchmark crown. We can't say for sure obviously until we get more time to run AnTuTu, and the many other popular benchmark suites for Android. When it all comes down to it though, it's all about daily performance and both of these phones deliver. Check out the Galaxy S III from our hands-on coverage linked to below.

    Less points in 3d than One X with Tegra 3.

    I have zero respect for Quadrant’s bogus scores but damn, Exynos really are a class of their own.

      Snapdragon S4 really rocks, 4900 with a dualcore… much more real-world performance IMHO

       yeah, it’s also a turtle compared to the S3. Sammy wins.

      Anything over 300dpi can’t be distinguished with the human eye and yes you have more dpi on the iPhone since (lets say hardware specs were equal, which is definitely isnt) iphone has over an inch less of screen size.

    Why are you guys comparing S4 dual core with Quad core…Even if it is compared…S4 with dual is much much better than Quad…not much of difference…Wonder how Quad core versionf of S or S5 would be…

      Not much different when your talking about Tegra 3 which even with an extra core gets bitchslapped by Exynos 4 Quad

    Even more of a reason to be extremely dissapointed if this gets a Dual core Snapdragon S4 shoved in the 4G LTE version for the U.S. Yes you can compare the S4 to the Tegra 3 but the Exynos quad CLEARLY is in another league. All the features of this phone are MEANT to be aided by a quad core CPU and quad core GPU. Gimping it with the S4 and Adreno 225 would be an insult to this phone and you might as well get the One X or iPhone.
