Mysterious Android device with Intel's Bay Trail chip shatters AnTuTu benchmark records
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 03, 2013, 3:19 AM
Intel finally woke up from its mobile slumber, cracked down on power consumption, and its new Haswell chips deliver battery life commensurate with ARM-based tablets and convertibles.
What about the even more frugal low-cost Bay Trail architecture that is supposed to go into mobile gadgets? Intel already demoed a 7" Win 8 slate with quad-core Bay Trail that you can see handled in the video below, and now a mysterious device with this new low-power silicon appeared on the AnTuTu database, running Android. The score? 43416 points. For comparison, the most powerful ARM silicon that is in devices now, the Snapdragon 800 chip, clocks in the thirty thousands range.
Haswell gear for laptops and convertibles, which already puts them right up there with ARM-powered tablets, for instance, and as we can see, they have record power to run Android, too. ARM isn't resting on its laurels, of course, so we'll all benefit in the end.Bay Trail-laden devices should have even better battery life than the

Nice! Intel is stepping up!

And just see the frequency, it's only 1.1 GHz!! Still it trumps S800 with >2GHz clock. I'd like to know how many cores this particular device is utilizing.

It's misleading. The normal clock speed is 1.1 Ghz, but with Turbo Boost, it's probably going to 2 Ghz or even higher. The reason why it's misleading is that in benchmarks it WILL use Turbo Boost while in NORMAL usage it will NOT. So you won't get "43,000" points worth of performance in normal usage with this Intel chip - only in benchmarks.

Intel's Turbo Boost works in normal usage, at least on laptops and desktops, it gives the processor extra power when it needs which isn't a bad thing at all, in fact it is good for battery life as it will run on low clocks if the power isn't needed.

gigaherz means nothing you're right. You can take the same chip and make it using a different manufacturing process which might create much higher clock speeds but not increase in compute power. Two different chips may use the same power while one is on 1ghz and the other is on 3ghz and have similar power. a GTX Titan runs around 1ghz while the GS4's GPU runs just above 500mhz however the Titan is way more than twice as powerful. So i wouldn't worry about the clock speed too much especially comparing architectures.

What the hell is this device?

Hahaha.. RIP Exynos! :D

huahaha never stop talking BS about exynos. just accept it your beloved exynos is nothing but gimmick I think your theory really show that you are so clueless at 2.0GHz exynos will have bad battery life, and before you talk to much just check gsmarena battery life comparison between S4 exynos 1.6GHz A15+1.2 GHz A7 vs S4 Snapdragon even in simple task snapdragon if intel chipset can provide power with great battery life, no one need exynos

ARM watch out Intel are coming for you!

Another Show-Off benchie? Reminds me of that stunt that Nvidia pulled off several months back Too skeptical, sure it can achieve astronomical scores, but is it REALLY power-efficient? I hope this is legit, ya know, without applying any form of ridiculous tweaks and cooling solutions

This is what I'm talking about. Intel processors has the performance and intel just want to optimize it for low power consumption. On the other hand, arm processors are doing the opposite way. I hope this is legit. Consumers will be the real winner here.

OMG! This kills everything else! Could it be a Tizen decide? :O

Now pair this with PowerVR Rogue series and it'll be the best.

Bay Trail uses Intel owns GPU> Intel Gen 7 (Ivy Bridge GPU architecture GPU) but with 4 Execution Units (cores if you want) instead of the 16 in the HD 4000 or the 20 in the HD 4400. So no, it won't run Crysis lol
