Video suggests Tegra 3 HTC One X is faster than the S4 version

A new video shows off the Tegra 3 and Snapdragon S4 versions of the HTC One X going head to head powering on and clocking the AnTuTu benchmark...

That doesn't leave much room for interpretation. The tegra3 processor seems to nail it hard.

yeah, that's a botched test. even my Razr can get around 6200.

That's correct:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1609878

This is the Rogers version of the AT&T One X with SHIPPING firmware. 7000 Antutu. Not great, but Antutu seems to assign more weight to having more cores.

Too bad in many other benchmarks the One XL/AT&T One X blows away Tegra 3.

Are these using the same version of Antutu? UI looks different and I did not see the FPS counter during the graphics test on the AT&T version.

Even my XS scores 6500. There's a problem with the AT&T's One X.

Antutu test is one of the few softwares in Android full optimized for quad-cores, so S4 Krait can beat Tegra 3 in everying else and with a lower power consuption.

Right - this test is with the dual-core S4, not Krait. With the smaller die process I don't think anyone doubts the power of Krait. The main reason this is more interesting than the average benchmark video is that HTC/AT&T decided to change the CPU in the same phone model, so if it turns out that one model significantly outperforms the other, it calls into question that decisions (and how consumers will response).

But until PA can verify the results on a production phone and control the testing procedure, this is just preliminary data at best.

Umm S4 IS Krait

Right, but we are comparing a dual-core S4 to a quad-core Tegra 3.../snip

Edit: Oops, I see! I meant to write "this test is with the dual-core S4, not _the quad-core_ Krait".

That's what happens when you try to squeeze in responses between articles. Carry on!

correct, but your also comparing a quadcore A9 on 40nm wafers vs a self proclaimed "A15 equivilant" on 28nm wafers. If the s4 was nearly as fast as it tries to compare itself to, it would wipe the floor with the T3 chip.
What screen is on the oneX again? 720p or Qhd?

Heck, the quad A9 exynos 4212 will destroy both of them.

If you go over to droid-life, they just posted the Antutu benchmarks for the "supposed" GSIII. It apparently has a dual-core 4212 Exynos processor instead of a quad-core (I still think its the GSII plus). It scored higher than the Transformer Prime.

I get all hot inside when I think of a future Cortex A15 based quad core Exynos lol...hurry up Samsung pls k thx

Remixfa you're truly an exynos whore.

Yeah, I agree. Quads on 32nm will beat the crap out of Quads on 40nm and Duals on 28nm. I was wondering why Qualcomm released Krait so early, they could have waited for their Quad-Krait and that will be at par or even better than the Quad-core Exynos.

Its 720p S-LCD2 if you're being serious. And still even if the exynos 4212 is super fast, if apps arent made to support the higher multithreading, there will be no point and the S4 probably would win in some circumstances. Then again, Samsung makes a meannn processor...

The 40nm huawei k3v2 outperforms both chipsets (using 64 bit memory is a great advantage), specially in 3D. I can only imagine what will the 32nm Exynos do. I'm not a 100% sure, but i think it also uses a 64 bit memory.

And when the A15 chips from ARM and Samsung arive they wil be on another level.

4 Cortex A9s at 1.5 GHz vs 4 Cortex A9s at 1.5 GHz.

Yes, tell me more about how the Exynos 4412, not the 4212 which is dual core at 1.8 GHz, is supposed to beat a Tegra 3 in CPU when they have the same architecture at the same clockspeed.

The only thing that the Exynos will definitively beat the Tegra 3 on is GPU and bandwidth.

the 4th Generation Snapdragon uses Krait Architecture.

I like Tegra devices, not sure why people downplay Nvidia but games and apps run smooth like any other device. My Photon doesn't seem to put massive #s on benchmark apps, but when it comes to actually using the GPU , it just works. That's all that matters to me. :)

Well these techy geeks are looking for the most powerful device out there. Not necessarily the most useful though. :p

It's like in cars, some people 'wants' to have a car with a V8 engine that can run at 200mph though they'll probably never get to flex it's muscles in their lifetime. But still, it's fun to have a powerhouse :p

I had a very old Sony Ericsson P990i while it was in it's prime and I loved it :p It was powerful then, only beat by it's bigger brother, the half qwerty half nightmare P1.

You obviously didn't use tegra2 based devices

It couldn't even play high profile video clips recorded in other dual core devices

you must mean the Crapdragon because the OMAP4 has support for more formats than the Tegra II.

AT&T's bloatware running in the background affects the performance! The 2 phones don't run the same version of AnTuTu ! The 2 CPUs are almost equal!

43. corrifa (Posts: 34; Member since: 28 Sep 2011)


I doubt the version of the benchmark or the small amount of bloatware would affect it that much.
AnTutu is optimized four quad core cpus so it can take advantage of all of T3's a9 cores.
-Most (all) other benchmarks arent.
---if they arent optimized, the T3 will only use the number of cores that the app is designed for
--------------------- Core vs Core, the S4 is faster then the T3.. More apps will get optimized though for quad core,.

How does it test SD card read/write speeds if neither model has an SD card available?

Top comment on youtube
"1296Mhz on HTC One XL? something's not right should be 1500Mhz...."
Could someone explain where it says 1296 Mhz?

If you go to 4:23 in the video, CPU frequency says 1296 Mhz (third line up from the bottom). The international version does say 1500 Mhz. I wonder if has anything to do with AT&T version of OS. That bothers me now, too. :/

Still fail against a windows phone in terms of boot speed with 4 additional core. (4+1 vs 1)
