Let the games begin! Quadrant 2.0 out with benchmark support for multicore processors and ICS

Let the games begin! Quadrant 2.0 out with benchmark support for multicore processors and ICS
Quadrant has earned a special place in every Android geek's heart, as it was one of the first to allow easy comparison of performances among CPUs, I/O and GPUs. With a plethora of silicon-makers wiggling their way under the hood of our handsets and tablets, it is important to benchmark and brag or fizzle out.

Well, now the popular benchmarking application has finally been brought to version 2.0 and in line with the times to account for multicore processing power, plus it adds support for the up and coming Android Ice Cream Sandwich handsets and tablets.

Let the games begin, we'd say - visually Quadrant has been polished a bit more as well, to make results more organized, and it seems to involve more thorough benchmarking. Overclockers of the world, rejoice!

the magnitude of the scoring system has decreased. 2200 is like the new 2800-3000.

are you sure? i'm on a conservative gov and ran it for fun. 3300. debloated sgs2 and small kernel tweak. no oc/uv and yes i know my setup is pretty bad, but i'm not about speed, but stability and battery life

until we start seeing more Galaxy S II scores we can't be sure but going by consistency I'd say something is messed up about how yours was scored. maybe this confirms that there's something about Samsung's late model Galaxies that messes with Quadrant.

if its an exynos based SGS2, i can still see it being around 3k since it is still the strongest chip. If its a hercules/skyrocket, then no. we know samsung has been messing with the I/O scores for those phones, so maybe it was able to carry over.

it's not THAT much more powerful than an OMAP4 though. you should see some of these forums on xda. it's pretty ridiculous how inaccurate these scores are now.

I havent seen the new scores yet for omap and exynos. if you have, visualize them without the I/O scores, which if i remember correctly is the first blue area of the score. it will probably close the "performance gap" quite a bit as the rest is actual CPU/gpu results. Gotta keep an eye on samsung's I/O score tampering. :)

I'm neck at neck with the Galaxy Nexus. about where I expected to be.

My Epic 4G Touch got 3076, I guess that's not too bad(?)

*views forums* okay, Quadrant officially makes no sense anymore and I'm not going to use it anymore. Antutu seems to make the most sense around here.

i can only score a 6150 in antutu which i think makes more sense. having the nexus just barely out score me

you need to give it a lil time KK, the dev said he is going to upgrade the graphs and such when he gets more information from everyone's benchmarks with the new system.

this actually has more sense now... my stock sgs2 scores a lot higher than galaxy nexus, which is logical...
