HTC One with its Snapdragon 600 blasts away through benchmarks

HTC One with its Snapdragon 600 blasts away through benchmarks
By now, you probably know a lot about the HTC One and its amazing UltraPixel Camera and unibody aluminum design, but there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip on the inside that powers the whole experience and it is very powerful.

Qualcomm has previously said it delivers up to 40% the performance of the Snapdragon S4 Pro, and now we have seen the benchmarks that prove this.

The HTC One scored a whopping nearly 12,500 on the Quadrant standard benchmark, and while we would not judge a processor just by a single benchmark, this is definitely telling.

JavaScript performance is also excellent with SunSpider returning a low (in this case lower is better) score of 1,195ms.

The HTC One features a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 with the Krait 300 processor, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 graphics. And in case you are wondering, there will indeed be more devices with the same chip, and we’ve already heard LG announce the Optimus G Pro with the Snapdragon 600, but the HTC One might actually come first to the States.

The Htc One definitely makes that Verizon Droid Dna useless. Thank God tmobile Htc fans are getting the BEST htc device yet. Even thou that Htc One X+ isn't bad either.

Don't think so...HTC will bring sense5 to droid dna and It should bring cheer to owners...for performance...krait 300 is just a rebadge of existing krait cores with higher clock...krait400 will improve performance significantly.

Krait 300 brings IPC changes that have increased equivalent performance ratio by approximately fifteen percent. It's definitely not just higher clocked Krait 200.

It always happens this way , in late 2011 verizon got the htc rezound 1st 720p droid & then in early 2012 blasted away by one x . now the dna is receiving asimilar bashing from htc one . I hope my htc butterfly can approach that number(if not equal it) once it's updated to sense 5 which seems to be a lighter version .

HTC one looks good? Its not bad but it looks like iPhone 5 had sex with Xperia P and some BlackBerry Z10 mixed

I have to disagree. The Dried DNA is still a beast of a phone. Hopefully this will get the sense 5.0 update and when that does, it will last you till 2014. Hell maybe even longer.

they most likely won't update the DNA to sense 5.. it's all about sales and profits.. why update an older phone when they're promoting their newest cash maker.. take the poor one x for example.. it was promised sense 4+ which is running on the one x+, and probably will never see the likes of it.. ever. let alone JB on AT&T.

If it was up to HTC then MAYBE it would get updated. Like the J Butterfly may get.the update. But those who run Verizon are bastards, they are never looking out for their customers only their wallet. Now I'm not saying that the other carriers don't have their eyes on their wallets as well, BUT they atleast keep their eyes on their customers as well because they are what pad their wallets..

HTC why not the Snapdragon 803, or the S4+, or the S4 prime, with 3GB Ram, so multitasking will be much better than 2GB Ram, cause Android is, needs takes up lot of Ram, also benchmark would surplus 1500.....

I have yet to see my phone go over 1gb of RAM without extremly heavy multi tasking. 2GB is enough.

If you put any trust in Quadrant scores you could use them to prove that dancing naked for 5 minutes in your garden affects device performance. -- Chainfire.

benchmark doesn't say can optimize the cpu to make good in benchmarks at cost of performance...just my 2 cents

I bet that the smartphones coming in H2 of this year utilizing the Snapdragon 800 chipset will blow the roof of these benchmarks.
