LG G4, Sony Xperia Z4 both spotted taking GPU benchmark test

Two flagship handsets that have yet to be unveiled are the LG G4 and the Sony Xperia Z4. Both models have been the subject of various leaks, and LG has already sent out invitations for the April 28th event at which the LG G4 will become official. The pair also show up on a list of the top 20 scoring smartphones that have gone through the GFXBench Manhattan 3.1 benchmark test.

This test is designed to measure how many frames are processed by the GPU in a set period of time allowing GFXBench to reveal the fps frame rate for the unit being tested. The Sony Xperia Z4 (E6553) employs the Adreno 430 GPU according to GFXBench. The handset scored high by running 1115 frames at a rate of 18 fps. The LG G4 (F500x, H815) has the Adreno 418 GPU inside and ran 348 frames during the test, which worked out to a frame rate of 5.6 fps.
The data also pretty much confirms that the Sony Xperia Z4 will have the octa-core Snapdragon 810 SoC inside, while the LG G4 will be driven by the hexa-core Snapdragon 808.

Thanks for the tip!

Also smokes the S6/Edge

At half the pixels. Impressive!

It literally triples the S6 in frame rates. Let's assume the S6 did have double the pixels the Z4 does (which it doesn't), and was tested with a 1080p panel. The frame rate would be 12. Still smokes it.

It depends on the workload. In the off-screen test, the adreno 430 averages around 17 fps while Mali T760 MP8 is around 13 fps. So yes, it's better. Moving to Manhattan 3.0 the adreno 430 averages around 23-24 fps while Mali T760Mp8 around 26 fps. Moving to 2.7 or T-rex the adreno 430 averages around 49 fps while Mali averaging around 49. Why you ask? The Mali has more cores at higher frequency. But the shader performance of adreno 430 is higher. So when you increase the load, the adreno pulls ahead due to it's higher compute performance. But when you move to real life games with much less load, the Mali pulls ahead. There's also basemark X where Mali scores about 27000 while Adreno about 20000. It all depends on workload when you are comparing cross architecture. It's not as simple as comparing CPUs. Smokes it would be really poor grammar for this. In some scenarios the Mali is ahead while in some, the adreno is ahead. Also there's matter of throttling where the adreno gives up pretty fast and goes to 50% performance after a few runs: http://images.anandtech.com/doci/9137/GFXBench_New2_M9_575px.PNG These are very complex topics to compare things. So unless you know the full story, you shouldn't badmouth something.

Correction: In T-rex, the Mali averages 59 fps, not 49.

Still your benchmarks mean nothing. For gaming better to buy iPhone.

My Z3 Compact paired with Dual Shock controller, emulating PSP games that can run from the SD card, and plugged to my TV disagree...

Naw.. For gaming on tablets the Nvidia shell is amazing and my droid turbo can handle any game with no problems. With the turbo I've played modern combat 5 for 2 or 3 hours and still have some battery and no lag. Device might get a Lil hot but I can hold it.

Yes I'm loving MC5 right now, what's your user name? I'm Diego Q.

iPhone has more games. Android has more and better emulators (when comparing iPhone 6 to Xperia Z3c, NOT Galaxy S6) Imo, Galaxy S6 doesn't really do anything special for gaming, as some games run bad on it, and emulators lag. iOS got lots of fun games though. Having an iPod gives me the best of both worlds ;) The batterylife and customizability in Z3c is something I prefer in a phone.

@ Busyboy. Look below. http://i60.tinypic.com/1267lp0.png The Exynos 7420 outperforms the 810 in real life. Because the Z4 has the same performance as the M9, the S6 will outperform the Z4 in real-life. But do keep clinging onto your worthless benchmark scores.

21. Kumar123 unregistered

Yeah, Z4 is really impressive. Galaxy S6 and S6 edge both sucks. 6.1 Fps! absolutely pathetic. Even 1 year old Galaxy S5 performs better than S6 and S6 edge. No wonder reviewers are complaining about dropping frames when playing games on S6 and S6 edge. And talking about overheating of SD810, exynos processor on S6 and S6 edge also becomes so hot when doing intensive workload like playing games that reviewers have to put down their phones. LMAO. I'm really hoping Note 5 will go with UHD resolution. Samsung you better come up with UHD resolution with Note 5. Can't wait for Note 5. ;)

Are you really this dumb or were you just joking when you wrote that post?

61. singhkaran9830 unregistered

Both devices heat,but the problem with SD810 it heats a lot even while browsing.Sony should have gone with 805 or Mediatek like HTC did,would have been great.And only 1 reviewer said that he had to put down the phone while playing game coz it became hot and it was a pre-release unit like HTC which fixed its overheating issues using a software update.

I don't see any reviewer complaining about frame drops during gaming. The reason why the S6 is so low is because it's rendering at 1440p on benchmarks. In real life, games only render up to 1080p, not 1440p. In real life, the S6 outperforms all other phones and it will outperform the Z4. http://www.frandroid.com/marques/htc/274664_test-du-htc-one-m9-2 Look at the performance for "Real Racing 3". The funny thing is that it's the M9 that performs worse than the M8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNN0I4zB5Wk The Z4 will perform worse than the Z3. Kumar will be asshurt.

What are you on about, even my Z Ultra with the Adreno 330 performs really well when playing Real Racing 3, it's not a big deal.

Benchmarks do not equal real-life performance, you stupid geek. Benchmarks render at native screen resolution while real games render at 1080p or below. Look at the chart below to see the real performance difference between the Exynos 7420 and SD 810: http://i60.tinypic.com/1267lp0.png The S6 will crush the Z4 in real games.

surly yeah z4 will blow smoke due to the over heating snapdragon810

Yeah those articles about the LG Gflex2 with sd810 overheating are really common these days...NOT

64. LGisgood

Posts: 833; Member since: Jun 23, 2012

yes that's why lg chose snapdragon 808 for its flagship. also the htc m9 has some over heating issues and that's made them go with mediateck for the m9+.

Big difference for 810 vs 808 on GPU.. wow...

15. TyrionLannister unregistered

The 808 is running on QHD while the 810 is running on 1080p. For comparison, refer instead to the offscreen scores Either way, the manhattan 3.1 is a extreme high-load situation. Also this benchmark is very very new and will get better in next few days. You should pay more attention to T-rex scores which is closer to real-life games.

good point. some don't ever realize that. 808 has some advantages that's why lg chose it over 810.

With that kind of so last year specs...the LG G4 is pretty much D.O.A....

I'm guessing they'll do two variants again like they did with the LG G3 (16GB 2GB / 32GB 3GB) Maybe this is the 16GB variant? LG G4 (16GB): SD808 2GB RAM LG G4 (32GB): SD810 3GB RAM

7. Busyboy

Pretty sure they're not going to release a flagship with 2GB RAM. I have a feeling the G4 will have an 808 and the G4 Note will get 810.

The SD808 has 32 GB storage and 3GB ram. So this would make more sense: LG G4 (SD808): 32 GB, 3 GB ram LG G4 (SD810): 32/64 GB, 4 GB ram

Yeah, I think so too 4GB of ram, wow
