OnePlus 2 scores 63,700 on AnTuTu, reducing fears of throttling
When the A2001 model of the OnePlus 2 scored 51,460 on the AnTuTu benchmark test, it was a cause of concern for those already mentally committed to buying the new phone. The score barely topped the 51,011 scored by the OnePlus One. This led many to worry that OnePlus was throttling the clock speed of the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset on the sequel, in order to prevent it from overheating. The OnePlus One is powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC.

But a new AnTuTu test might help wash away the fears of potential OnePlus 2 buyers. The same A2001 model scored 63,719 on this second test, topping the scores produced by other Snapdragon 810 powered handsets like the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro (63,424), HTC One M9 (57,648) and the LG G Flex 2 (56,266).

The OnePlus 2 will be unveiled on July 27th with a special VR event that will start at 10pm EDT. Hopefully, you already have your Google Cardboard headset at the ready.

Wth? The g flex 2 is that low?

Probably the first generation 810 that overheated

Still lower than Galaxy S6...And I guess hotter too

Finally, they got the best score before "Low battery!" (26% left ;-)

G flex2 is with 2 GB RAM only.

I hope this isn't an overclocked results to create some sh!tty hype Shut up and release it already

And my quad core AndroidOne measly got 20,000 on benchmarking. I need to cry at the emo corner now.

Are you convinced that Antutu score gives you any advantage in the device speed?

Yes and no. It gives me the idea that higher scores reflect better data execution i/o which can be a little bit say IRL performance. I have a Cherry Mobile One scored at 22,000+ and a Nexus 7 2013 scored around 40,000+, I'm no IT but I know what of my devices can give faster and bettet performance.

Run that benchmark again and see the score drop by 30% due to throttling. It doesn't throttle that much in the first run.

What if they put a "heatsink" on while testing?

Off course it will because it is running around 90 - 100°C and the temperature shouldn't get higher than that. Also the heat tends to accumulate inside smartphone body because it can't dissipate all the heat which the SoC produces.

Nah, i am sceptical to the SD810 until some third party testers says the same. Not one singel SD810 device has managed the throttling so i really dont belive it this time either.

Oh we all know how well the Mi Note Pro did before it came out. And then it turned out to be just like its brothers with the same SoC. Flagship Killer might be dead on arrival.

This is misleading, I'd like to see the average score on 5 or 7 successive tests, where throttling usually happens... Im pretty SURE it's significantly LOWER than that! SD810 is a lemon...period

1920x1080. So I guess this answers that question.

Maybe they overclocked it and Water Cooled it lol

This is not PC so just forget about overclocking using water.

Water cooling sinks is so 90s.

I'm still skeptical. Anyone could do one really "hot" run of a benchmark. It's difficult to say that this wasn't one of those runs where OnePlus just said: "Don't throttle it for the benchmark, and if it overheats, it overheats. We've got to make it look like it performs well." Then they promptly engage the throttling post-benchmark. This could be as much about controlling the PR as it is an actual representation of performance.

None of this means anything, really, until actual production OnePlus Two handsets are in the hands of users and true benchmarks can be taken. Until then we have no idea if the scores were for throttled/not throttled, prototype, optimized or beta Oxygen OS, etc. We simply don't know. The GizmoChina article speculates the first score was a prototype, but they don't really know either.

Adding a top of the line corsair radiator with noctua fans in push pull configuration works. So I guess the opt will be 400 + 250 for the water cooling...
