LG's octa-core chip gets benchmarked; score is consistant with a big.LITTLE architecture
posted by Alan F. / Dec 28, 2013, 10:13 PM
Interestingly, the LG Odin was clocked at a very slow speed (100MHz-1GHz), so LG's chip might produce good results without needing to turn up the clock speed. However, there is a good chance that we will see a bump up in speed, especially since the device tested was a prototype. We should point out that the GPU on the LG SoC is the new Power VR Series 6. That is the same series that runs the graphics on the Apple iPhone 5s, which is equipped with the G6430 GPU. This means that LG's SoC should offer outstanding graphics performance.
According to the AnTuTu site, the device that ran the benchmark test screen featured a resolution of 1080 x 1920 with 2GB of RAM, 4GB of native storage and Android 4.2.2 pre-installed. Don't panic, the device is just a prototype after all.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Quad is enough

Amen! Chipset manufacturers need to focus on improving quad core cpus instead of adding more and more cores. Whats next? 16 cores?! Pointless!

Did you not read the article? This isn't a true octa core CPU, it's using big.Little like Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chips do. I assume you know how big.Little works. Also, considering this is clocked at 1 GHz and scores similarly to the Exynos 5410 ( which has a 1.6 GHz quad core A15 CPU), this is probably using the Cortex A57/A53 set up of big.Little, which means these are very much improved quad core CPUs, just like you asked for.

I agree !! .. Quad core should be the one where manufactures need to focus to improve its performance and efficiency. Although I'm impressed to see low clock frequency achieving an impressive score which i guess will be easy on battery and practically good in day-to-day life.

AGREE MUCH. why they don't focus on bigger battery capacity while keeping it thin.

is it cortex a15 or cortex a53

Good question. I'm not really interested if it is an A15/A7 big.LITTLE, but it seems unlikely it is A57/A53 big.LITTLE. I love my G2, and I liked the OG a lot, However, if the iPhone 6 rolls with anything close to a 5" screen, and keeps up the improvements to the A-series chips, LG is going to have to wow me to get me to repeat.

just noticed LG's nomenclature seems to be patterned after the xperia's. even the odin code name for a flagship is similar. they should stop this. they appear like the copy cat even when their devices are at par or even better than sony's.

Copy cat of sony or samsung? They are trying to walk on a foot prints of samsung... see lg G2 it copies all the features of S4 n note, well I dont call it a copy, it is called a competition, what competitor is bring, bring the same... this is called competition not copy otherwise coke n pepsi would be the largest copies

OH MY DEAR Friend! Are you out of your head? S4 has nothing to copy first of all.. and what from Note 3? you are freaked out because you are a samsung fanboy and you are scared mate which you should be.

The reasoning behind the conclusion that this is not a true 8 core is ridiculous. It scores around the same as Samsung's octa, but at only 1Ghz!!
