Verizon version of Samsung Galaxy S IV may have hit benchmark site, shows 1.9GHz processor

A Samsung device that was run over the NenaMark2 benchmark site shows the SCH-i545 with a FHD resolution of 1080 x 1920, the Adreno 320 GPU, Android 4.2 on board and a 1.9GHz processor; considering that the SCH-i535 is the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the benchmarked model could be the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S IV...

Octacore big.little chipset will make it to the Note III. That plus KLP will have Apple filing suit over lost sales yet again. Nothing like whining when they could be innovating.

It doesn't matter how good the S4 might be... Verizon will ruin it..

I hope to see more high-end phones with a Intel Atom Clover Trail+ processor other than the Lenovo Ideaphonme K900. Can't wait to see more phones and tablets with Bay Trail processors though.

I cannot believe Samsung could go for Snapdragon for the S4.
It would be handing out the greatest chip business out there to the direct competitor of Samsung semiconductor division!

My bet is they will use it for U.S. versions only

So by coming into the article and leaving a comment that has NOTHING to so with the article doesn't make you pathetic?

Please stop while you're ahead.

Nope, we're just not butthurt. Unlike iFans, we have nothing to be butthurt over.

I don’t know what device it is, but I bet that it’s not the S4.Samsung has developed a super ultra mega Chip like the Exynos Octa and the new flagship will get a standard Dual Core SoC from Qualcomm which has been used in several Smartphones like HTC’s One S or the Qualcomm Version of the Galaxy S3 for a year now?Oh and by the way: Qualcomms MSM8960 doesn’t even have an Adreno 320. Either it is a MSM8960T (or another Chip) or it’s got an Adreno 225.Looking at the Results the GPU got it should be an Adreno 320, but then it can’t be a MSM 8960.So the data from GLBenchmark is false anyway. I call B.S. on this one Samsung ain't using no snapdragon on the Galaxy S4.

It's probably the Snapdragon 600 since it's clocked at 1.9 GHz.

Well the phone experience of the S4 should be very good. The benchmarks of this phone will lag behind the iPhone 5S in terms of GPU performance. The A6X chip was the one to beat, however, the Adreno 320 is no match for the PowerVR SGX 554.

This will mean that the 5S will be the upgrade for this year for Apple with the A7. Again Apple isn't threatened by performance with the release of the Snapdragon or Qualcom processor with Adreno GPU.

In terms of GPU performance is the key word here. In terms of every other performance, Apple isn't threatened, they know that they are already beat. Also, Apple software and their under 720 p resolution screen had reached diminishing returns a LONG, LONG, LONG time ago. You simply do not need to put a rogue GPU in the iphone 6, maybe the ipad 5/mini 2 but not the 6. Don't be shocked if they take the profit margins of reusing the iphone 5 gpu instead of including the rogue GPU.

The iphone 5s GPU performance won't reach the A6X either. Funny how you conveniently forget that the iphone 5 with two less GPU cores comes nowhere close to the A6X and neither will the iphone 5s.

Here is a link that shows how all the current GPUs compare.


Notice how even the older A5X and definitely the Andreno 320 beat the iphone 5's under clocked with two cores removed GPU in the off screen tests? Using the A6X to represent the A7 in the next iphone is ludicrous, there are HUGE differences in power. the A6X slaughters the under clocked A6, stop talking about them like they are the same.

The only reason the iphone 5 GPU benches so high is because the screen resolution is below 720p and the software is highly optimized for GPU benchmarks.
