LG Optimus 2X scores high on Quadrant benchmark test, Motorola ATRIX 4G surpasses it
posted by Alan F. / Jan 15, 2011, 7:54 AM
During the CES, the LG Optimus 2X lost a little of its luster when the Best in Show Motorola ATRIX 4G strutted its stuff, not to forget the manufacturer's DROID Bionic. But the guys at TechBlog might have started the buzz for the Optimus 2X all over again following the Quadrant benchmark test that the LG model was put through. That is, until a video of the ATRIX 4G's own Quadrant benchmark test was revealed.
According to our tipster, Kevin, while the video shows a 2500 result for the Motorola ATRIX 4G, another time the handset scored 2700 although the video was not as clear. The bottom line is that like the events in Las Vegas, it looks like the LG Optimus 2X (headed for T-Mobile as we reported) is playing second fiddle once again to AT&T's own dual-core Superphone.

But wouldn't the live wallpapers on the Optimus 2X significantly reduce the benchmark as it runs in the background irrespective of whether you're on the homescreen or not.

did anyone notice how on the 3D rendering test Optimus got two time more fps than atrix??? you can see it clearly on those few moments in the atrix video when the guy lowers his cam enough. that means atrix is better on other areas if they finish similary. plus - the results bar at the end is not the same - that means that settings of the benchmark results is different or different software version was used.

I believe the quadrant program is optimized for single core phones and not dual core. As such, this test should be taken with a grain of salt. In addition, I doubt a score of 200 points will make a huge difference if the scores are that high.

my mt4g over clocked to 1.612 ghz did 2250 buts its single core so that goes to show what 1ghz dual core phones can do without overclocking.. though i expected more than 2500 and 2700 from these phones...

quadrant is not capable of using both cores, so the score is nice since its basically running it at a single core. cant wait to see what the scores look like when quad takes full advantage of that tegra 2. the atrix/bionix has a big RAM advantage over every other phone at the moment, so it would be incredibly bad if the lg beat the atrix/bionix. the fact that it keeps up so closely (as they both stomp other phones) is actually pretty suprizing.
