Samsung Galaxy Note 3 benchmarked again at AnTuTu?
Meanwhile, it appears that the next iteration of Sammy's phablet line has made a return trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site where it scored an impressive 33,082. The score was achieved using a Hong Kong variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900), and a processor clocked at 1.9GHz was driving the unit. Additionally, Android 4.2.2 was installed on this particular Note 3.
Interestingly, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 recently scored 27,914 on the same benchmark test. The difference is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on that test was powered by a 1.6GHz processor as opposed to the 1.9GHz clock speed on the more recent test. We should also point out that the Note 3 that made the earlier AnTuTu run was carrying Android 4.3. Taking the score and the clock speed into consideration, the version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 used on the latest test probably was powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

This thing is going to be supah fast lol. I hope the design changes up a bit though.

it should the Note 3 was suppose to be in the "design 3.0 phase".

design 1.0 = S, S II and Note
design 2.0 = S III, S 4 and Note II
design 3.0 = Note III

I don't know if this is the Snapdragon 800 and not just a higher clocked Exynos Octa. Why would Samsung underclock the 800 by about .4Ghz? I mean you could argue for battery life purposes, but even the devices rumored to launch with the 2.2-2.3Ghz clocked Snapdragon 800 are suppose to have excellent battery life.
Also, this would go in line with how last year's Note II used a higher clocked version of the SIII processor.

I was about to reply but you hit the nail on the head. It's far more likely that this is an Exynos variant when you take in to consideration the clock speed.

Exynos octa with 3 gigs of ram

So Nokia, get ready to hide ur 1020 or next 1120 or 1220 whatever

Interesting clock. The SD600@1.9GHz wouldn't pull 33k, while the SD800 is basically a 2GHz+ clock of the same architecture (the S4 LTE-A is clocked at 2250MHz for example). Maybe it's the new Exynos 5 Octa?

There are already leaked sketches for the Note 3 on Sam Mobile and Android Authority showing a device of 5.7 inches with the OS as JB, kinda not interested in this now with the tiny display, aside from the internals and 1080p display, it's pretty much the same phone as my Note 2 and what new trickery can it do. The note to note 2 showed some huge advancements, this doesn't seem to be the case going from 2 to 3. As with S3 to S4.

Very amusing Game of Thrones reference, thought I was being called the channel 4 news presenter.
Doesn't change my opinion on the Note 3 or Samsung for 2013 i'm afraid, just sounds a tad underwhelming.

Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 1.9 or 2.2 Ghz. 3GB RAM
Design : Beefed up S4.
This is the most likely scenario for US variant I think.

There's no such thing as an 1.9GHz SD800, Qualcomm clocks the current gen quad-core Kraits as follows: 1.4-1.5GHz: S4 Pro, 1.9GHz: SD600, 2.0-2.3GHz: SD800. The US version will definitely get the latter, while I'd imagine the Exynos market will get the improved Exynos variant in this test.
33k is impressive (same as the S4 LTE-A ib SD800), but AnTuTu is not very reliable these days as the CPU on the SD800 is 30% faster over the SD600, the Adreno 330 is twice as the 320. So the Snapdragon version should easily take the cake, especially on the 3D front, I don't think ARM has a GPU matching Qualcomm in power/efficiency, neither nVidia for that matter. Qualcomm definitely won the 2013 battle.

You can overclock or underclock a processor to what clockspeed you like, sherlock.

It's definitely the Exynos 5 Octa, once again showing just how powerful it is at just 1.9GHz it's sitting at 33000, that A15 Cortex is a beast!
GSMArena say it's a Exynos Octa to:

They won't clock it above 1.9GHZ because the battery life will suffer and overheat. The score is not that impressive anyway. Still can't beat Xperia Z ultra score

i got a nexus 10 at 1.7Ghz duel core exynos A15 and its a beast :D

Looks like a E5410 quadcore A15
If there gonna use the E5420, which i don't think so cause of to much battery needed to push that Cpu. Clocked at 1.9Ghz if that was Rooted or the E5420, Antutu scores would reach 39000 at 2.2Ghz.
E5420 is mainly for Tablets and E5410 for smsrtphones
There is no sign of the E5450 A15s! Wonder how that Cpu would preform....?

Man I can't wait. Faster cpu, higher resolution and more features. I'm throwing $300 at the screen right now!!! Nokia should be ashamed of themselves for making a $300 Nokia 920 with beefed up camera.

And making a beefed up s4 for samsung. This comment is just a huge pain in the ass. Yeah, nokia might gave a high price, but I doubt that it will stay that long. After a month or so, nonstop price drops will be announced. Unlike any other devices.

after a month nonstop clone Samsung will be release with great price drop...
24. scumbledEGG (unregistered)
lg g2 vs note 3? hmmmm...
25. scumbledEGG (unregistered)
4k resolution needs supah fast processor, so its just the same output, power to weight ratio??? only difference is the supah clear hidef hd??? haha! I guess...
27. scumbledEGG (unregistered)
ultra hidef res with lots of lag??? simplicity is the best policy that you may enjoy greatly, APPLE!!! don't judge the book by its cover, haha!
