Calves and quad-cores: Snapdragon S4 Pro vs Samsung Exynos 4412 vs Huawei K3V2 vs NVIDIA Tegra 3

0. phoneArena posted on 23 Oct 2012, 02:08

We gathered the existing quad-core mobile chipsets at the office table, and ran a few standard benchmark tests to decide who is who in the world of multicore. Of notable absence are the overclocked 1.6 GHz Exynos 4412 in the Note II and 1.7 GHz Tegra 3+ in the HTC One X+. These would certainly perform better than their basic versions, but are not actually a different processor family, just one with a 0.2 GHz step overclock, so we wanted to stick with stock...

I'm pretty sure the One X Tegra 3 version after Sense 4.1 update is faster than S3, should have use that one instead of the LG Optimus 4X HD

Again, it has a software -fluffed I/O score, they faked it.
Still, it's not faster than the S3.
My stock S3 constantly hits over 12400(12557 highest I got so far ) in Antutu, while HTC got to about 11500 with their little trick.

I don't get what you want to say, as there isn't any HTC in the test.
And abouty Antutu: that's the one that does not look right for some reason.
The LG Optimus G takes between 13500-14000 most of the time, not sure if something is wrong with the unit they used:
And that's with ICS, it should go up when upgraded to JB.

I was replying to street nerd.
And yeah I hear you about the optimus G..that score is too low.. although, I just found that Gsmarena also got a rather low 11200 score

Did anyone notice...on quadrant apart from s4 pro...all three choke on memory bandwidth...I think exynos could do better if connected to bigger and/or faster bus!

pretty sure dual core will outperform them like the new xperia series :)

it is best to leave the One X+ and the Note 2 to the Nexus 4. that would interesting.

Great video comparison!

First things first, for the LOVE OF GOD... cut the ridiculous names already! It's just painful to listen to all of the ridiculous names throughout the video (although Daniel does a great job keeping them straight).

Secondly, I wish half these phones were available as is in the U.S. Jealous.

Thirdly, I think it would be interesting to see the dual core S4 to give us a reference to how much of a drop off we see from having only half the amount of cores.

Thanks for the video!

I'm so excited about the Huawei processor. For being their first foray into mobile processors, this is a huge success. To have held its own against these powerhouses is quite the feat. Definitely looking forward to their next gen processors.
