Earlier today we took a trip over to the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas to check out some of the new tablets Asus is coming out with, the first of which is a 7-inch device dubbed the MeMO 171 and we went hands-on…

You apparentlybdon't know who i am. xD
i'm merely a segmentbof the Android user's pie that's incredibly picky about my mobile SoCs. okay, i haven't had to explain this in a while because most of the norms already get this. the Snapdragon S3s use out of date ARM-Cortex A7 archetecture and uses inferior Adreno 220 graphics. i kid you not when i tell you a 1GHz OMAP4 which is based off of ARM-Cortex A9 archetecture and has things like NEON support and excellent PowerVR SGX540 graphics is better than even a 1.5GHz S3 and what's more the higher clock frequency translates to higher voltage so battery life is worse just because it's a totally bad processor. i could've keot going but i'm typing this on my mom's Charge and i wanna wrap this up.

You sir are wrong about the GPU. People show me data that prove otherwise. I would post a link but PA say I have banned words in it.

actually i'm not. there's more benchmarks that contradict your link there than ones that support them. Quadrant, Antutu & Smartbench 2011 are all examples and it's pretty well known that PowerVR graphics are the best you can get in Mobile SoCs Apple's iPhones have been using them for years and besides that in real world performance phones powered by Qualcomm S3s are noticeably behind those powered by OMAPs, Exynos & even Tegra IIs most of the time.

if you want to just kill some time tell me how many pages it takes you to see anything Qualcomm.

Once Qualcomm puts the s4 chips into production then their chips will be very competitive in performance. That will be based on a 28 nm process instead of the s3's current 45 nm process.

yeah, just the battery efficiency alone will be enough to catapult Qualcomm into my good graces.
