Intel Atom Z2580 AnTuTu score drops 20% after revision to site
Earlier in July, a benchmark test of the Intel Atom Z2580 chip resulted in a very impressive score. The test on the AnTuTu site revealed that the Intel silicon had beat out processors from Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and Samsung. But as it turned out, the score was somewhat misleading. Consulting firm BDTI pointed out that the Intel chip was not executing all of the instructions. Because of the ICC compiler used for Intel processors, the RAM test was incomplete which artificially raised the score. Other processors use the GCC compiler.

The AnTuTu site has since been revised and the benchmark score for the Intel Atom Z2580 is now 20% off with the RAM score itself cut in half. Scores for other processors remained the same. The 20% cut in the Z2580's score now puts the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa on top of the Intel silicon based on benchmarking the Exynos 5 Octa powered Samsung Galaxy S4 against the Intel Atom Z2580 flavored Lenovo K900.

Things could get wild next month when a major revision is scheduled for the AnTuTu testing standards.
