Xiaomi Mi3 scores highly at GFX Bench thanks to Tegra 4
0. phoneArena 08 Jul 2013, 04:48 posted on
The Xiaomi Mi3 handset, built by Chinese OEM Xiaomi, is getting closer to a launch and a trip through the GFX Benchmark site showed that the device held its own against heavyweights like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One; the GFX Benchmark site also revealed some of the specs on the phone such as the 1.8GHz Tegra 4 processor under the hood, Android 4.2.2 installed and the 1080 x 1920 display...

No no noooo! That power hog will run the Mi-3? SD800 is the power/efficiency SoC to get, I'd say that's a bigger buying point for me than a phone's branding. Sony Honami, Galaxy Note III, Oppo Find 7 and hopefully the Mi-3 on the 800, gimme one of these!

S800 which Qualcomm showed in benchmarks was in a tablet, it won´t as good in phones. Phones have about 2W TDP, but tablets have about 4,5 W TDP.
But I agree that tegra is not suitable to phones, Tegra 4 (probably) draws about 4W, but maybe Nvidia worked on to bring TDP down and that might be why tegra came so late to the party.
I really hope that Tegra 5 will bring Nvidia back on its feet, what I have heard about tegra 5 sounds really great so here is hoping.

Any numbers to support your claims? Or you just repeat the myth you heard somewhere else?

When Qualcomm showed of its S800 it was in a tablet. And tablets are allowed to have a bigger TDP. It is logical that tablets have more power. But no, this has not been confirmed and this is just me thinking, I am sorry that I didn´t write it in my first comment.

Tegra 4 is heading to flopville
With all those Raw speed and power, still nobody trusts Nvidia?

Let's see 2.7 results.
Huh? "No results yet"?
I smell something fishy.

what if its Tegra 4i, i know the cpu clockspeed of tegra 4i is higher then 1.8 ghz but it has fewer gpu cores and that could translate why Mi3 has lower score then shiield

It scored lower than the Shield because the GPU is clocked at a lower frequency. The Shield is a thick gaming controller with a (very small) fan and heat sink, as well as a large battery, so it can afford to be clocked higher. This is what I expected in the first place, no way will the Tegra 4 be as powerful as the Shield in a commercially available smartphone, it runs way too hot and draws way too much power.
Snapdragon 800 will be the SoC of the year, unless Samsung outs a new variant of the Exynos 5 Octa clocked at 1.9+ GHz and one of the more relevant GPUs from PowerVR or Mali. Though there won't be any difference in every day performance, I'm just speaking from a perspective of raw power.
