Samsung Galaxy S has the fastest GPU of all Android models
Which Android model has the fastest GPU? It has got to be the Nexus One, right? Nope, guess again. Well, if it's not the N-One, it's certainly the DROID. Double Nope. Oh, yeah, it has to be the HTC EVO 4G-after all, that handset walks on water. Triple Nope. The answer is the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S. Thanks to the Hummingbird A8 chip, the Galaxy S can process 90 million triangles per second. To put that in perspective, the Nexus One can process 22 million triangles in that second while the DROID can handle 7 million. Comparing the number to a non-Android handset, the iPhone 3GS can work on 28 million triangles per second. This means that Samsung's new Android device has a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 chip that is 3 times faster than the 1GHz Snapdragon that powers the N-One and the EVO 4G. This gives the Galaxy S 36% of the video processing power of a PS3. Add to this the Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung device, which is built to be very efficient to save power and battery life, and the Galaxy S is on a...ahem...Galaxy of  its' own.
