Five dual core Androids reference users, HTC Pyramid too

Friday, April 22, 2011

The battle of the dual-core and all hold their breath. That will come out on top-the Tegra 2, Exynos, OMAP4 or Snapdragon? Both processors and their new GPUs are tested to see how the new generation of smartphones do.

A comprehensive mobile shotout brought together five of the latest dual-core Android phones-Motorola Atrix 4 G, the LG Optimus 2 X LG Optimus 3D, Samsung Galaxy S I9100 II and HTC Pyramid (a.k.a. Shooter). Those who represent four different platforms-NVIDIA Tegra 2 (Atrix, 2 X), OMAP4 (3D), Exynos (Galaxy S II) and Snapdragon (Pyramid).

The table below gives a breakdown of CPUs, GPUs, RAM, screen resolution, OS version. ran some tests and collected others from various sources. Note that Motorola Atrix 4 G and HTC Pyramid is a disadvantage because they must update 30% more pixels and also LG Optimus 3D Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Pyramid was running pre-production software.

Here are some of the results (some of benchmark apps not running on some phones).

Android dual-core benchmarks

Although the Snapdragon processor with dual core technology possesses a 20% clock speed advantage, posted the worse results than Cortex A9 cores in the other chipsets. It is at this point is not clear how much this is due to unfinished software and how much the older Scorpion core design (which, apart from a dying fall, is the same as in the original Snapdragons).
