HTC One (M9) gets benchmarked on Geekbench

HTC One (M9) gets benchmarked on Geekbench
Earlier today, we showed you the Geekbench 3 score of a Samsung Galaxy S6 running the Exynos 7420. The single and multi-core scores of 1520 and 5478 respectively, beat out the 1241 and 3521 scores allegedly belonging to an HTC One (M9) that also went through the benchmark test. The model number, 0PJA10 matches the model number of the phone whose reflection showed up on the screen of a Sony Xperia Z2.

The specs come in exactly as expected with an octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU under the hood along with the Adreno 430 GPU, and 3GB of RAM on board. Like the Geekbench test of Exynos 7420, it would appear that the slower Cortex A-53 was in use during the test, resulting in a 1.55GHz clock speed. The phone ran through the test with Android 5.0.2 installed.

There are still question pertaining to the size and resolution of the screen on the device. Some expect the glass to come in anywhere between 5-inches and 5.2-inches, and offer a resolution of 1080 x 1920 or possibly 1440 x 2560. We should know for sure on March 1st when HTC is expected to unveil the phone at MWC in Barcelona.

Wow, did you really just rush into this article as soon as it was posted, just to spout that crude acronym? Classy.

Exynos, only exclusive to Korea and Asia. The rest get the crappy Slowdragon.

The note 2, s3 and alpha exynos versions reached Europe. That will happen again Now at least the crapdragon fans will stop bashing of how Samsung will die because it doesn't use 810

Multi-core score is way down considering where single-core score is. Normally you would see multi-core score in the range of x3.0 ~ x3.5 of single-core scores for quad-cores. Yes, I know that S810 is a big.LITTLE octa-core but for the purpose of Geekbench I have to assume the big cores (4 x A57) are responsible for the most part. In this instance the multi-core score is not even at x3 of single-core score. It gives more credence to the rumored overheating problem..

Exynos 7420 is also big.LITTLE Cortex A57 - Cortex A53 and scored 15xx single-core, 54xx multi-core.

The article said that the A53 cores were in use for the multicore benchmark, I for one have no idea as to why the article said this, but it could possibly explain the lower score. Anyone care to explain more? Honestly though, the Enyxos seems like it might be the better long term strategy for Samsung even if the SD810 beats it slightly. Right now the SD has better development support but if the enyxos chips gain more of a traction in the market it will be good for everyone.

The benchmarks detect airways the clock if the little cores. That doesn't mean that little ones were running. Anyway, quad cortex a53 can't even generate 2000 score and the benchmarks specifies 8 cores which visit l clearly means 8 cores were running. For example in exynos 5410 which runs only 4 out of 8 cores, it detects 4 only

Exynos 7420 is most likely a 14nm product. Snapdragon 810 and Exynos 5433 are 20nm product, and their single-core scores seem to be evenly matched. But this multi-core score by S810 that is not even 3 times the single-core score worries me.

Single core, the A53 performs pretty well at 1232 points, still short of last years last years Apple A7 by over 150 points. Still its a lot more advanced than any Krait chip because of the conservative clock speed used. But the Multi core score shows huge diminishing returns per core considering there are 8 cores here.

I wished Qualcomm wasn't strapped for time and tried out Apple's "wide and slow" microarchitecture approach while retaining the epic battery life. I understand that the SD810 obviously wasn't designed to take on benchmarks like Tegra or Cyclone but quad core low clocked custom Cortex A53s would be interesting.

Epic battery life? Go check out the iphone 6+ vs the galaxy note 4 (with its much higher resolution screen) then tell me which has the epic battery life. Typical Apple Mong

I apologise if that wasn't clear. "while retaining the epic battery life " was for Qualcomm. Qualcomm smartphones OWN battery life but what I was trying to say was it would be interesting if Qualcomm could beat Apple at Apple's own game with a 'wide-and-slow' CPU approach while still being less power hungry than Apple.

14nm Exynos beating 20nm Snapdragon is only natural, but the Snapdragon scores are too low regardless. Very disappointed by the 810 so far.

Qualcomm got complacent and lazy, and they are gonna pay for it. The krait architecture was awesome, but using it for three years straight without building a new one in this current mobile landscape is unacceptable. Look how early Apple developed a 64 bit ARM v8 based custom core. And now we have this half baked Snapdragon 810 as a result of that complacency. Snapdragon 820 better be awesome.

In another hilarious to score too low, still Sand dragons 810 's word of garbage.

i guess that confirms either the Exynos 7420 is built with the 14 nm process, or that S810 overheats easily and throttles quickly.... i began to get convinced to the Exynos 7420 now! unlike the older days of the Exynos4 and Exynos5 days!!

oems, switch to nvidia,intel,mediatek or even exynos. Snapdragon 810 is half baked

Htc phone will run like crap with the 810 even if Samsung did nothing with crapwizlag it be a faster phone then the m9, the only thing that wil Save it is the crap screen so will need not to use the power of the 810

That's a but of a letdown on the SD. That'S the same score as the 1 year old nvidia K1 quad core. Nvidia and Samsung both going to leave Qualcomm behind? Where will nvidia's newer X1 stand?
