Benchmark test reveals that Intel's version of the LG Nuclun 2 chipset is superior to TSMC's variant

Benchmark test reveals that Intel's version of the LG Nuclun 2 chipset is superior to TSMC's variant
The version of Apple's A9 chipset produced by TSMC reportedly outperforms the Samsung manufactured A9 chipset. When it comes to the LG Nuclun 2 chip designed by LG, it seems that the TSMC made prototype might be somewhat inferior to a protoype of the chip produced by Intel. The difference is that the Intel chips are produced using the 14nm process, while TSMC employs the 16nm process for the production of its Nuclun 2 chips.

Both versions of the chipset were run through a benchmark site. The Intel variant of the LG Nuclun 2 scored 1,980 on the Geekbench single-core test, and a 6689 in the multi-core test. The TSMC prototype tallied 1721 for the single-core test, and 5710 in multi-core.

Based on the benchmark tests, it would seem that Intel will probably get the call from LG to manufacture the chipset, and both companies might have already shaken hands on a deal. Late last month, we told you that LG and Intel had agreed to work together on a new mobile chip. The LG Nuclun 2 employs the big.LITTLE architecture with four Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores.

Whatever LG decides to do, the company will surely make some sort of public announcement. While it would seem obvious that this will be Intel's gig, stranger things have happened. After all, there are other factors that LG needs to consider including pricing and yields.
