Intel Medfield phone benchmarked, beats the Galaxy Nexus easily
The first Intel Medfield phones are right around the corner - we saw four of them at MWC 2012 and among them the Orange Santa Clara based on Intel’s reference platform. We also know that Intel’s got some impressive performance to show even with its single-core processors, but we didn’t know the exact details.

German site Caschys Blog got the Orange Santa Clara for more than just a quick overview and ran some benchmarks. The results don’t disappoint - the Santa Clara easily beats the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the current Android hardware champion with its TI OMAP4460 chip.

The Orange Santa Clara scored big on Qualcomm’s Vellamo benchmarking application and the results on BrowserMark were equally impressive. It left the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Tab way behind on Vellamo, falling short only of the quad-core Tegra 3-based Asus Transformer Prime.

Plenty of reasons to get excited, don’t you think? The Santa Clara runs on Android 2.3.7 (Ice Cream Sandwich update is confirmed), Intel Atom SoC Z2460 clocked at 1.4 GHz, packs 1GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory.
