we'll see but i wouldn't underestimate the strides Qualcomm has made with their Krait architecture. those guys have been full of surprises lately. Qualcomm shouldn't underestimate Nvidia either though. they know what they're doing too.

theres no way snapdragon 600 would have beaten tegra 4. So we saw that coming already. Snapdragon 800 will be beaten as well. Just hope nvidia will fix their heat issues and give me a 5 inch 1080p with HTC and good battery life and I'm good 32 or 64 gb memory

Interesting. Crazy benchmarks, some higher than a Core 2 Duo. I find it hard to believe though. I know Qualcomm is not the most unbiased source but they said the Tegra 4 was nothing special and was very similar to the S4 pro. Trash talking yet but if the Tegra 4 really is this beastly, that Qualcomm guy is an idiot for opening his mouth about it.

i just want the best battery life processor. im expecting alot from snapdragon. i hope it delivers. nvidia and exynos have always been about gaming so im not really interested in those. those look good in tablet only.

Give me a 8 core Krait chip with 6 A7s at 1.2 ghz and 2 A15s at 2 ghz. Now give me a quad core Kepler GPU and a 6,600 maH graphite battery. Make the A15s be smart and only kick on for games and web browsing. 4 Gigs of ram, loud speakers to shut up the Apple douches7mm thickness and with a military inspired Moto look, stock KLP running the show on an edge to edge 4.7 inch 1080p screen, and you will have my money in your pockets

Remember when the Tegra 3 didnt live up to the hype? Im seeing the same story here...thats why Asus, HTC, Sony and the rest of the pack are reluctant to use the Tegra 4 in their devices....Nvidia fans, dont rejoice just yet until we actually see production samples.

Thing is that tegra 4 was defeated in Graphics department by A6X only and snapdragon 600 is not the flagship, the flagship is 800 so it should be 800 vs tegra 4!

No. The Tegra 4 Produces 57fps while the Apple A6X produces 52fps. Go to Anandtech for more information.

Tegra 4 is a great SoC, its a hybrid. It will be on "Smart phones & Tablet" with a GPU power better than the A6X. Along with its size 80mm2 (Tegra 4) vs 110mm2+ (A6X).

People saying Exynos Octa will perform better, no it won't, they use the god damn same CPU (+4xA7) only a higher clock will but its clocked the same.

The problem has always been about heat and battery life. Tegra 4 octa or even snapdragon they all can deliver extreme performance on any mobile device that can beat a6x.

Do a fair comparison, the Snapdragon 600 was the same generation as the Tegra 3, and it was 2.5x faster than Tegra3. That being said the it is biased to compare Tegra4 with the 600. Of course it's better than the 600, it better be or it's crap. The only fair comparison would be against the Snapdragon 800 which is the same generation. Otherwise you're comparing with last year's performance.
