Benchmark powerhouse Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 is released in China
The Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 has been launched this past week in China. An international release of the model is expected later this summer. With its 6.9mm unibody casing, this is one of the thinnest large-screened smartphones available. The aforementioned dual-core 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 processor is paired with the PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU for outstanding performance. With low-light photography all the rage these days thanks to the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 928, the Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 might even outperform those Nokia models. The 13MP camera on back has an aperture of F1.8 which allows users to bypass the flash when taking photos in less than optimal lighting conditions.
The Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 has a price tag reading 3299 RMB ($536.74) and L.A. Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant has been pushing the device on Chinese television, print ads and on social media sites.

This phone is better than the S4 and HTC One, disappointing that we didn't get a nexus 5.

Its commercial in the Philippines is always on the air, locally made phones come next, then galaxy s4 And xperia z(both have very rare commercial, no samsung commercial yet; just one carrier commercial), htc one no commercial at all..

Uhm.... gpu is only dual core....I really don't give shyt about antutu and other synthetic benches, but is the Atom optimized to play ARM / Android games? Will there be compatibility issues?

I really don't think it can compete with ARM.
This is a bloated, overly complicated processor that costs 2-3x the price of the Exynos Octa/Snapdragon 600.
No wonder basically nobody is using it.
Here's a good article about its predecessor:
..and here is why AMD is ditching x86 in favor of ARM:

Wow. Thank you for this link...
So the Clover trail is a DOG
Because I had doubts when I saw a k900 off youtube sampling some 3d intensive game and it lagged heavily

yeah, my lenovo A800 looks more premium than scumsung galaxy s4 eventhough it costs about $180.

Its a promotional video of course there is no lag showed and the handset is not yet released so there is no real life scenario review if you know what the intel soc can do now just take a look at motorola razer i its not that great as expected
14. ahmed_ali_yossef2010 (Posts: 159; Member since: 26 Jul 2012)
watch these videos so what's your point ?
motorola razer i is singel core 1.3 ghz and when being under pressure it's overclockable up to 2 ghz

Well like i said the hardware is not yet released who knows it will have compability issues or something benchmark doesnt mean anything as long is not released just take a look at tegra 4 reference tablet scored 36000 in antutu and the real handset doesnt scored that much

FInal version of this phone on android 4.2.1 scores 27800 in antutu.

Nice phone. But I can't afford it & I'll wait for the lenovo P770 successor with quad core CPU & 4000 mAh battery.
