Still confused? Here's the difference between the Snapdragon 800 and 801
|Model||Max CPU clock||Max GPU clock||ISP||eMMC||Dual SIM, Dual Active||Memory interface|
|MSM8974VV||Snapdragon 800||2.2GHz||450MHz||320MHz||v. 4.5||NO||800MHz|
|MSM8974AA||Snapdragon 800||2.3GHz||450MHz||320MHz||v. 4.5||NO||800MHz|
|MSM8974AB||Snapdragon 800||2.3GHz||550MHz||320MHz||v. 4.5||NO||933MHz|
|MSM8974AA||Snapdragon 801||2.3GHz||450MHz||320MHz||v. 5.0||YES||800MHz|
|MSM8974AB||Snapdragon 801||2.3GHz||578MHz||465MHz||v. 5.0||YES||933MHz|
|MSM8974AC||Snapdragon 801||2.5GHz||578MHz||465MHz||v. 5.0||YES||933MHz|

My question is, will the 801 beat the A7 if both were pushing a 640p display?

Probably, but Apple doesn't allow synthetic tests on their hardware for obvious reasons and games are dependant on GPU so it can't be compared directly easily.

They shouldn't introduced 32bit 801, but they should introduced 64bit 801.

Snapdragon most likely dont have a 28nm 64bits desing, thats they are licensing ARM's Cortex A53 in the meanwhile for low end and keeping current 32bits krait
you will only see a 64bit krait on 20nm

The graphics processor at least would. The one that's out currently gets about 129 GFLOPS, whereas the PowerVR with the A7 gets around 115. Theoretically, the Adreno 330 (this is clocked at 450MHz) is more powerful. That being said, 700,000 pixels to push versus 2 million... The average adreno 330 is not going to outperform the A7 in benchmarkshttp://kyokojap.myweb.hinet.ne

Even At 720p snapdragon 800 can beat the crap out of apple a7. So snapdragon 801 will, In case you care so much about benchmarks.

Look at the iPad air benchmark test A7 with 2048x1536 resolution... android geek failed again....
19. vincelongman (Posts: 954; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)
It depends on which benchmark you look at
A7 wins in GFXBench
S800 wins in 3DMark
The S801 and S805 will be better than the A7 in all CPU & GPU benchmarks, but the A8 will close the gap
20. Taters (Posts: 2596; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Different power source and different clock speed itard. Give the S800 a fat battery and no thermal throttling and a higher clock then you will see the same difference.
Funny how the iPhone is right there for you to use relative phone performance and you itards choose to use the iPad air to compare with a S800 phone instead of, you know the phone that is using the A7.

You sound mad broseph. Read the first post and you'll understand why the iPad was brought up. Let me know if you need me to explain further.
23. Taters (Posts: 2596; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I know why the ipad was brought up but it still is itarded thinking. The ipad still should not be brought up. The Xperia Z1 compact at 720p beats the iPhone 5s at 640p in most benchmarks. And the S800 in the tab 8.4 pro also beats the iPad mini wii retina in most benchmarks including sunspider(not sure how because the Samsung browser should be heavier than safari).
So where is this good reason why the iPad Air was brought up? I don't see it. Maybe in itard land it exists.
You have the Z1 vs iPhone 5s and the tab 8.4 vs the iPad mini with retina. Two as fair as possible comparisons and you itards think that bringing up the iPad Air with the over locked A7 and fat battery that prevents thermal throttle and doesn't have any of the bottle necks associated with mobile phones is fair? Please.

RTFA. It's about SoCs. Not about phones or tablets Mr itard.
11. nctx77 (Posts: 445; Member since: 03 Sep 2013)
Dude, it's 2014. It's all about the A8 which is already in production. You are still worried about the A7 lol! You will never convince anyone in real world test that the 801 is any better than the A7, or the 800 anyway.
3. 1701nino (Posts: 228; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
And my question is,how does the ipad with 2048x1536 resolution chrases through benchmarks,even outperforming snapdragon 800.So as you were saying A7 is a beast no matter what resolution and it's "only" dual-core with quad-core graphics.
P.S. i can only imagine what the A8(which is right around the corner) wil do.
4. Trex95 (Posts: 541; Member since: 03 Mar 2013)
I agree with you. I own the IPad mini retina and Nexus 7 2013 overall performance Mini beats Nexus 7 easy even though Nexus 7 run KitKat 4.4.2. The only device on bar with IOS devices in the market now Nexus 5, it's not about how big hardware device had it's about software optimization plus software should works in harmony with hardware and that's where Apple shine and now Google did right with Nexus 5.

The gear in the nexus 7 is two years old!
It's a S4, not a S600 or S800.
14. Ninetysix (Posts: 1377; Member since: 08 Oct 2012)
Nexus 7 has an underclocked S600.
18. AfterShock (Posts: 2177; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
Essentially, same as a 800 is a 801 depending on yield.
Its a two year old soc at any rate still.
25. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3882; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
No it's not. The Krait 300 cores in the Nexus 7 are form 2013, they just aren't clocked as high. The Nexus 7 also has DDR3 RAM, while the typical S4 Pro from 2012 was only capable of having DDR2.
9. ArtSim98 (Posts: 2271; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
A7 is a fantastic chip, but it's not faster than SD800. I would say they are about the same. But yes A7 is super fast and it's incredible that it's still just dual core and so low clocked but still fast
16. UglyFrank (Posts: 333; Member since: 23 Jan 2014)
ARMv8 vs ARMv7, ARMv8s are supposed to be much more powerful than their ARMv7 counterparts. Also, tablets get better performance out of chips than phones, that is why the ipad air can keep up with the iphone despite the massive resolution difference. The samsung tablets with S800 can almost keep up with the S800 phone despite having a resolution that surpasses the ipad.
7. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 2365; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
Then we need to check the chipset nos. There are so many. Huh... Look at 801's table.
13. PapaSmurf (Posts: 7416; Member since: 14 May 2012)
So the S5 sports the best chip on the market as usual.
26. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3882; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
By 8%. I don't think that's a big enough different to put the GS5 on a pedestal.
27. GTX_Ti (unregistered)
Well technically an overclocked SD801
15. wilsong17 (Posts: 738; Member since: 10 Mar 2013)
Yea a7, a8 we it still cant multi-task is 2014 people
22. Federated (Posts: 154; Member since: 06 Mar 2010)
So the Z2 will have 2.3gHz (MSM8974AB) and 3GB or RAM. Easily the smoothest multitasking smartphone in the fist half of the year.
28. BenCjamin (Posts: 78; Member since: 13 May 2011)
All i have to say is what the Sh** happened to Samsung's Processors? Hands down the best on the market every time i just wished they would have put them in all their smartphones they blew away crapdragons.
