Leaked Pantech phone benchmarks show Snapdragon 800 besting Exynos 5 Octa

Just how powerful will Snapdragon 800 be when it lands in our phones and tablets further down the road? If leaked benchmarks for a Pantech IM-A880X device with Qualcomm's fastest chipset are to be believed, it is faster than even Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa, as found on some Galaxy S4 handsets.

The difference is about 10%, but bear in mind the Pantech gear might be still in an engineering prototype testing phase, hence the benchmarks on AnTuTu, and the final retail version might be squeezing some performance out of the Snapdragon 800. 

Sony is another manufacturer rumored to come with a Snapdragon 800-based device by the end of the year, as well as LG, so we can't wait for the cage match when these land. Watch the demo of S800 given us by Qualcomm's team in early spring at MWC.

you can not compare a production device to a prototype device . we will have to look at other benchmarks also . intel latest flagship chip clover trail + inside lenovo k900 scores 27500 in antutu inspire of being a dual core ( 4 thread ) but when we look at other benchmarks i.e. quadrant it score just below 6000!

wats d difference in s800 and s600

Performance difference? Very hard to say at this point cause AnTuTu includes GPU scores as well and the SD800 setup supposedly sports the new Adreno 330 GPU. With THAT beast included, 30k AnTuTu is not all that impressive, but as said, this leak may be based on prototype or not valid at all. One thing is for sure, Qualcomm, Tegra, Samsung all struggle with heat.

Exynos 5410 overheat by GPU SGX-544MP3 @533MHz. Fail.

All of them do, Tegra 4 and Qualcomm Snapdragos 600 and over. They have pretty much reached the thermal limit to the power/heat at 28nm. Now the next step in order to get better performance is to some power budget management as Intel does in some chips.

So what's the big deal if it overheats ..? Just don't touch that section! So if that bothers you, go use, or buy an S2 or last years device, then you might complain that games and other things will lag. So you're telling me electrical devices don't heat up...? ®

Or buy a case.

Thats right, just buy a case, why hell complain, just enjoy the power of V8 engines®

S600 is nothing more than a rebranded Snapdragon S4 with very minor changes at the metal layers to achieve higher clock speeds. It has the same APQ8064 markings though it bears the Avenger 2 codename. S800 uses the new Krait 400 cores with the Adreno 330 GPU.

that math does not add up . s4 has a standard clock of 1.5ghz (quad) , and s600 in htc one has clock of 1.7ghz approx 15% higher than standard s4 pro. and the best s4 pro antutu score is around 19000 while s600 at 1.7ghz in htc one can score 24600 all day long . If we look at quadrant score s4 pro @ 1.5ghz = 7600 s600@1.7ghz= 12200

Correct. Snapdragon 600 uses a slightly improved Krait design which is about 15% faster.

My Z does 20651 antutu and 8010 quadrant. but the s600 is faster just a fact ;)

Exynos @ 1.6GHz = 28544 antutu. Qualcomm S800 @ 2.3GHz =- 30133 antutu. What's compare? 700MHz.

But, but, but Exynos is Octa. The 4 more cores should compensate for the lower frequency.

aaaaaaaaaaaaa how many time do i have to write this exyons octa have 4x2 so only 4 cores can wor at the same time and its quad core not octa :/

But... But.. Samsung fans tell me a different story... (despite knowing about this fact).

Samsung Exynos Octa = a name You can name any name for a product, but the name does not always tell the characteristics

Exynos 5410 is basically a dual-quad core chipset if that makes any sense. For performance use, it uses the A-15 cores, for lower power consumption it uses A-7.

Benchmarks arent important in the first place; efficiency is. But im happy that now Samsung fanboys will have something to cry about and deny, thinking their S4 is the best phone out there. They are behaving worse than iphone fans from 1-2 years ago,

You are behaving worst.... No samsung fan complained about any thing right now...you're looking like troll now....

Im just telling the truth. A bitter pill to swallow for some. Im not bothered by how many greens or reds i get, that is like a decoration to me. When others behave like that and get away with it, i dont think i should hold back either as long i dont cross the line.

No, no, you really do make yourself look stupid, when you learn that Samsung uses BOTH Oxynos and Snapdragon chips.

Im well aware of that. But in my country we get the Exynos variant.

Actually you are telling your version of the truth, perhaps shared by others. But it is still just your opinion and nothing more. I agree both fanboys are awful, but I do think there are more Apple fanboys than Samsung fans, who are blinded by their brand. Besides, best phone isn't defined by cpu speed, efficiency alone.

Are we looking at the same chart...or did you really shave off ~400 MHz from the Exynos one and add ~200 MHz to the s800...... If you looked, with both of them running at 1958 MHz, the Exynos gets 25684 and the s800 gets 28544. I mean....you really messed up reading that chart in all sorts of fictitious ways.

The chart shows only the Snapdragon 800 scores at different clock speeds. There is no Exynos in the chart, but the Exynos 5 Octa does score about 28,000 in AnTuTu.

Oh yes, you are correct, for some reason I thought the bottom one was the Exynos, not really sure why the writers even brought the Exynos up if they aren't going to show a comparative chart. Just say "This is what the s800 gets" in that case.

It is kind of misleading, they should have put up the E5O's score for comparison.
