Mysterious Android device with Intel's Bay Trail chip shatters AnTuTu benchmark records
0. phoneArena 03 Jul 2013, 03:19 posted on
Intel already demoed a 7" slate with quad-core Bay Trail, and now a mysterious device with this new low-power silicon appeared on AnTuTu running Android. The score? 43416 points. For comparison, the most powerful ARM silicon that is in devices now is the Snapdragon 800 chip, which clocks in the thirty thousands range...

And just see the frequency, it's only 1.1 GHz!! Still it trumps S800 with >2GHz clock. I'd like to know how many cores this particular device is utilizing.

It's misleading. The normal clock speed is 1.1 Ghz, but with Turbo Boost, it's probably going to 2 Ghz or even higher. The reason why it's misleading is that in benchmarks it WILL use Turbo Boost while in NORMAL usage it will NOT.
So you won't get "43,000" points worth of performance in normal usage with this Intel chip - only in benchmarks.

Intel's Turbo Boost works in normal usage, at least on laptops and desktops, it gives the processor extra power when it needs which isn't a bad thing at all, in fact it is good for battery life as it will run on low clocks if the power isn't needed.

It should run Crysis 3 and Modern Warfare smoothly on our phones :P

Gigaherz doesn't mean nothing, architecture is more important.

gigaherz means nothing you're right. You can take the same chip and make it using a different manufacturing process which might create much higher clock speeds but not increase in compute power. Two different chips may use the same power while one is on 1ghz and the other is on 3ghz and have similar power. a GTX Titan runs around 1ghz while the GS4's GPU runs just above 500mhz however the Titan is way more than twice as powerful. So i wouldn't worry about the clock speed too much especially comparing architectures.

This is clocked at 2.0Ghz. Take the E5420 and clock it at the same speed would be the same so your theory and common sense surely shows you are an average Joe.

huahaha never stop talking BS about exynos.
just accept it your beloved exynos is nothing but gimmick
I think your theory really show that you are so clueless
at 2.0GHz exynos will have bad battery life, and before you talk to much just check gsmarena battery life comparison between S4 exynos 1.6GHz A15+1.2 GHz A7 vs S4 Snapdragon
even in simple task snapdragon
if intel chipset can provide power with great battery life, no one need exynos

I really love to fry my egg on my S3.. the heat produced by Exynos is enough to fry an egg..

One day we will run PC games in our smartphones!

Another Show-Off benchie? Reminds me of that stunt that Nvidia pulled off several months back
Too skeptical, sure it can achieve astronomical scores, but is it REALLY power-efficient?
I hope this is legit, ya know, without applying any form of ridiculous tweaks and cooling solutions

Geez, 43416marks/1101MHz? As far as i know the maximum cpu clock speed of Bay Trail is 2.1GHz which means.... wow amazingly fast. Intel will dominate mobile SoC market.
8. Tsepz_GP (Posts: 574; Member since: 12 Apr 2012)
Am I reading that correctly? It managed that at 1.1GHz??? That is incredible, Intel making major headway here, I just wonder if Android apps can take full advantage of Intels chips.

i dont really care about benchmarks anymore, companies and developers should just focus more on optimizing android apps and software.
13. neutralguy (Posts: 1152; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
This is what I'm talking about. Intel processors has the performance and intel just want to optimize it for low power consumption. On the other hand, arm processors are doing the opposite way. I hope this is legit. Consumers will be the real winner here.

Freaking awesome. Bring it on Intel. I would love to have an Intel inside Nexus probably next year.

OMG! This kills everything else! Could it be a Tizen decide? :O

Now pair this with PowerVR Rogue series and it'll be the best.

Bay Trail uses Intel owns GPU> Intel Gen 7 (Ivy Bridge GPU architecture GPU) but with 4 Execution Units (cores if you want) instead of the 16 in the HD 4000 or the 20 in the HD 4400.
So no, it won't run Crysis lol

can i play LoL on a Bay Trail powered tablet? xD

Its too bad Intel had to resort to cheating to win on Antutu. (read the link below...the RAM test is FAKED OUT when run on x86 and the GPU scores are maxed out on just about every piece of Si testing. Check out //forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2330027). Antutu isn't even a real benchmark, its propaganda from China.
C'mon Intel -- you're better (ethically) than this!
