LG's octa-core chip gets benchmarked; score is consistant with a big.LITTLE architecture
Interestingly, the LG Odin was clocked at a very slow speed (100MHz-1GHz), so LG's chip might produce good results without needing to turn up the clock speed. However, there is a good chance that we will see a bump up in speed, especially since the device tested was a prototype. We should point out that the GPU on the LG SoC is the new Power VR Series 6. That is the same series that runs the graphics on the Apple iPhone 5s, which is equipped with the G6430 GPU. This means that LG's SoC should offer outstanding graphics performance.
According to the AnTuTu site, the device that ran the benchmark test screen featured a resolution of 1080 x 1920 with 2GB of RAM, 4GB of native storage and Android 4.2.2 pre-installed. Don't panic, the device is just a prototype after all.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Amen! Chipset manufacturers need to focus on improving quad core cpus instead of adding more and more cores. Whats next? 16 cores?! Pointless!

Wow, ppl. still don't get the point of Octa-cores.

Did you even read the article ? Have you any idea about how big.LITTLE architecture works ?

Do u even know the benefits difference betweens singel/dual/quad/octa cores?
Go search for it before u say its pointless. Its just not about perfomance with more cores.

So may be thats why snapdragon 800 (quad core) is better than exynos 5420 right?
31. xfire99 (Posts: 570; Member since: 14 Mar 2012)
Krait 400 running at 2,3 Ghz and 5420 1,9 Ghz. Perfomance is equal and u still havent understand the benefits about what more cores can do.
Im talking about benefits and not perfomance.

Did you not read the article? This isn't a true octa core CPU, it's using big.Little like Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chips do. I assume you know how big.Little works. Also, considering this is clocked at 1 GHz and scores similarly to the Exynos 5410 ( which has a 1.6 GHz quad core A15 CPU), this is probably using the Cortex A57/A53 set up of big.Little, which means these are very much improved quad core CPUs, just like you asked for.

I agree !! .. Quad core should be the one where manufactures need to focus to improve its performance and efficiency. Although I'm impressed to see low clock frequency achieving an impressive score which i guess will be easy on battery and practically good in day-to-day life.

AGREE MUCH. why they don't focus on bigger battery capacity while keeping it thin.
19. _Bone_ (Posts: 2140; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
And how do you figure that happening, putting a bigger object inside a smaller one?
17. rantao333 (Posts: 276; Member since: 21 May 2013)
actually most apps only optimize for single & dual core , even quad is less optimize
27. grahaman27 (Posts: 349; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)
Octa core is not for performance in this case, but rather power efficiency. Look up "big.LITTLE"

are you guys using a different antutu from what im using cuz i don't see all of that

Sorry i'm not going for that octa core baloney anymore.

Good question. I'm not really interested if it is an A15/A7 big.LITTLE, but it seems unlikely it is A57/A53 big.LITTLE. I love my G2, and I liked the OG a lot, However, if the iPhone 6 rolls with anything close to a 5" screen, and keeps up the improvements to the A-series chips, LG is going to have to wow me to get me to repeat.
28. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4108; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It scored a little higher than the Exynos 5 Octa (5410) at 1 GHz. I'm pretty sure it's using A57/A53 big.Little.
12. dratomic (Posts: 476; Member since: 09 Oct 2013)
i think its the a53. look at the 27k score achieved with only 1ghz speed

Haha, no 2k display.

just noticed LG's nomenclature seems to be patterned after the xperia's. even the odin code name for a flagship is similar. they should stop this. they appear like the copy cat even when their devices are at par or even better than sony's.
10. Ashoaib (Posts: 2429; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
Copy cat of sony or samsung? They are trying to walk on a foot prints of samsung... see lg G2 it copies all the features of S4 n note, well I dont call it a copy, it is called a competition, what competitor is bring, bring the same... this is called competition not copy otherwise coke n pepsi would be the largest copies
25. Jishnusur (Posts: 73; Member since: 07 Oct 2013)
OH MY DEAR Friend! Are you out of your head? S4 has nothing to copy first of all.. and what from Note 3? you are freaked out because you are a samsung fanboy and you are scared mate which you should be.
13. livyatan (Posts: 753; Member since: 19 Jun 2013)
The reasoning behind the conclusion that this is not a true 8 core is ridiculous.
It scores around the same as Samsung's octa, but at only 1Ghz!!
16. Ezio2000 (Posts: 14; Member since: 11 Dec 2013)
If lg overclock it to 2 GHz it can beat even s805 plus it is a prototype then results are lower than the final version
26. JerryTime (Posts: 468; Member since: 09 Nov 2013)
This is making me want a G3 more and more. Sorry Moto, but I think I'm about to waive bye bye.
29. sarge77 (Posts: 202; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
lets go lg be the first to bring octo core to US oh dont forget the sd card for your new years resolution add them to your devices this year
30. OpTiMuS_BlAcK (Posts: 412; Member since: 04 May 2012)
Yes! They're finally using PowerVR on a high-end phone~!

Way to early. Selling my G2. Not playing the keeping up game. Will stick with Samsung. Too bad LG is getting carried away with its new found fame and now messing it up by releasing new product when the G2 is doing great. They will eventually join the failing Apple who should be pretty much history by the end of this year.
