Mobile World Congress there is tons of talk regarding Qualcomm's new Snapdragon S4 Krait SoC, and with good reason. Four cores aren't always better than two and many different elements come into play with performance in general, especially on a mobile device. Today we've been given a chance to break down the new Qualcomm (Mobile Development Platform) MDP MSM8960 dual-core 1.5 GHz SoC S4 and are starting with the usual benchmarks.
NenaMark2 suite. What makes this unique is the device is being listed as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- only with a new TI OMAP 4470 processor with much, much better graphics and a possible speed of around 1.8 GHz. Interesting indeed. Is Samsung about to pull a Motorola and drop another device so soon?
ASUS Transformer Prime quad-core tablet vs the iPad 2. Now when comparing devices there is tons to talk about but we'll be keeping this short and focusing on a few benchmarks. These were some of the best tests available to test both devices. With different platforms, hardware, and operating systems this can only be so accurate -- but we figured you'd like to take a look so here's the results.
we've got a Galaxy Nexus in the house. We've been busting our collective humps to get you as much information as possible about the new hardware and Ice Cream Sandwich, and our latest effort is n that all-important and relative statistic, CPU and GPU benchmarks. If you want to get to the goods right away, you can hit the gallery at the bottom of this post.
benchmarks almost daily between custom ROM's, new versions of Android, and devices that have beefed up or new dual-core processors. What we have today is the popular and widely known standard Bell Galaxy S II that has been tweaked, hacked, and manhandled to achieve one of the highest Quadrant benchmark tests we've ever seen. All the details on this crazy overclock and high performing kernel can be found below.
DROID RAZR and we were live in NYC to get some actual hands-on pictures and videos. Not only that, but we also snapped a few photo comparisons to the Samsung Galaxy S II and even benchmarked the brand new DROID RAZR. For all the pictures and details head on down to see just how thin the RAZR really is, and how it fared in a few benchmark tests.
