Quadrant benchmark test of Samsung Galaxy S II produces amazing score of 3,053

Quadrant benchmark test of Samsung Galaxy S II produces amazing score of 3,053
As we just told you, the Samsung Galaxy S II will not ship with the Tegra 2 dual-core processor in the U.K. Instead, the handset will have Samsung's own Exynos chipset under the hood. And while the accuracy of the Quadrant benchmark test for dual-core processors has not yet been determined, the Exynos chip apparently produced a brain-numbing score of 3,053 on a Quadrant test run by Eldar Murtazin. We say "apparently" because it is possible that instead of using the Galaxy S II running on the Exynos 1.2 GHz processor and Mali-400 MP GPU, it’s possible that Murtazin's model was powered by a nVidia Tegra 2 with a ULP GeForce GPU.

The score beat out the 2,958 produced on a Quadrant test of the LG Optimus 3D, which we reported on back during the MWC. Ironically, the Samsung Galaxy S II scored only 1950 at the same time, making us wonder if Samsung has tweaked its device since February, or if that high score of 3,053 is legit.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is expected to launch May 1st in the U.K. and there is no word yet if the phone will be offered in the States.

samsung said way back when, that the SGS2 hardware coding was not finished and it would show much faster results by launch. So this puts it in the lead right where the chip was expected to be. Great news. Now i cant wait to see what XDA cooks up for it. :)

I disagree. I think Samsung went into damage control with the original Exynos failed to compete @ 1.0Ghz. So now its overclocked to 1.2Ghz to bump it up those few extra thousand Quadrant points.. Boohooo! So really nothing's changed, I doubt very much that the Samsung engineers worked that hard on the HW coding, its just a generic A9 core! In overclocking the CPU to boost scores probably accounts for them squandering over Tegra II CPU's to fill the gap for those Exynos CPU's that don't overclock well off the fab line. Infact AMD does the same thing with their black series of CPU's I think I'll stick to my Atrix which pulls 2870-2910 Quadrant scores. Its only synthetic benchmarks after all, and doesn't give you a real sense of what the handset is going to be like. and, the Atrix can only get better with Gingerbread comin soon :-) @ 1.2Ghz, I wonder what the battery life is going to be like? Also, 4.3" and with SAMOLED at 800x480 res, you're going to see every single pixel on that screen. What were Samsung thinking??

Lololol you may be right but you sound like an Atrix fanboy. I'm an Evo fanboy so I can't wait to see legit benchmarks on the Evo 3D!

wait.. u think bumping the clockspeed by 20% nearly doubles the quadrant??? ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? id go back and slap your math teacher if i were you. I overclock my Vibrant 20%. It goes from 1700 to 1850. It does not go from 1700 to 3100. That is called better hardware drivers and implementation. Samsung plays a numbers game. If everyone else is at 1ghz, they want to be at 1.2 When everyone is at 1.5, they will hop to 1.7 just to be ahead. But the bottom line is the Exynos is the most powerful chip about to be released. Every geek article about archectecture says so, and every benchmark shows it. It has nothing to do with fanboyism. Not every chip is created equal. When Tegra3 comes out in Q3/4, that will be the new king until something replaces that... until then its Samsung Exynos.

just by 0,2Ghz it improves from 1950 to 3000 ? isnt that a bit to much?

Samsung is not reliable!

say what you want, but samsung has been letting out some pretty impressive phones lately. along with all the other major players in the mobile industry. also i would say samsung is more reliable than all other phones makers because MOST of the hardware they use is made by them.

The only impressive wholy Samsung made phone Samsung has ever released and sold in large quantities is the original Galaxy S - and it had a fcuked GPS unit, was as laggy as hell and had very cheap build quality.... While the SGS II looks good in the photos and synthetic benchmarks, lets see how it makes good on the wrongs of the past before you go jumping on that soap box.

i have a vibrant 1) its not a cheap build quality. its very solid and has taken dozens and dozens of hits. if you dont like that its lightweight, thats on you. The super amoled reduces screen weight which is where much of a phone's weight comes from. Its plastic, but so are 90% of all other phones. giving it an aluminum back doesnt make it any stronger. it just makes u think it does 2) they fixed the GPS issue. I garuntee ill get a lock before you do... and with more sattelites. :) In our family trips, the vibrant is the GPS of choice over HTC phones. Its more accurate and keeps a stronger lock. 3) lag was due to RFS file system which is easily fixed with Voodoo. The galaxy2 runs android 2.3 wich doesnt allow RFS, only ext4 (which is what voodoo was), so there goes that arguement. 4) The galaxyS now has official 2.3 support rolling out as of yesterday. How's your phone? :)

I would like your post if there was a button to do so, so much true in such few words!

So is this results done with the tegra 2 or exynos 4210?

If the 1st galaxy s was any indication, all major carriers, and even some regional carriers, will see this phone.

ya, im hoping that all the majors get the exynos, and the tegra2 is saved for the "lesser" variants for the regional carriers.

I wonder if they will overclock the Tegra II variants to 1.2Ghz like the Exynos variants??
