HTC ThunderBolt benchmark tests

HTC ThunderBolt benchmark tests
In this video we are taking a look at the HTC ThunderBolt and running it through some benchmark programs.

Earlier in the day we ran the Quadrant benchmark program a few times, and got scores around 1800-1850, but for some reason when we ran the same tests later (as shown in the video), the scores were lower at 1430-1490. We can only think that there must be some background applications running that is eating up CPU cycles for the speeds to drop. Meanwhile, the Motorola DROID X was consistent at 1400-1450.

We also ran the NeoCore program from Qualcomm that tests the phone's frame-per-second rate. On the HTC ThunderBolt we got results from 57.7 to 59.9 FPS, while the Motorola DROID X was about 32 FPS.

Don't waste your money on this T-Bolt. It's obsolete processor and 768mb on memory is subpar. 1400-1500 benchmark score is pathetic. Wait for the Bionic or jump ship to AT&T and buy the Motorola Atrix 4G, I did. I pull 2700 benchmark scores on average in the morning at first start up and later in the evening. 1930mah battery gives me 9 hours of solid use. 2Ghz of processing speed mixed with 1GB of memory makes for great performance.

you are aware that this is the new series of snapdragons? Until software is optimized for two cores, this phone can do just as well.
