HTC One Outdated Already? Nvidia Tegra 4 Takes On Qualcomm
Article by: Kevin Go – With a bit of help from Nvidia’s Tegra 4-packing reference tablet revealed at MWC 2013, benchmark scores are finally now made public and it looks like the Green team finally got themselves another winner when it comes to crunching numbers, what will the future hold for the Snapdragon 600-toting HTC One and the highly rumored Samsung Galaxy S4? That we’re soon to find out.
The HTC One’s Qualcomm chip is able to score an impressive 12,xxx points in Quadrant which is staggering in comparison to the LG Optimus G’s already high 7,400 and the Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy S3′s 5,xxx (the N4′ scores play within the 4,800 to 5,700 range), thing is, the Nvidiat’s reference tablet with a Tegra 4 chip garnered over 16,000 points which is even more astonishing.
We know, Quadrant is just as reliable as the rumor-mill but it’s still a pretty good way to easily showcase a device’s processing prowess.
Engadget was able to test drive the system on SunSpider and here’s what they have to say, “the tablet chewed through all that code in just 499ms (keep in mind that lower numbers are better in this particular test). To give you some perspective, the iPad 4 scores an average of 865ms in the test.” which means users should expect an overall faster browsing experience on a Tegra 4-powered device, it’s worth noting one of the strongest selling points of Apple’s iPad tablets are the devices’ ability offer a fast and smooth browsing, the Tegra 4 can essentially deliver the same experience.
Don’t get carried away by those impressive numbers though, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 is yet to come out of its silicon cage — that will surely start another endless episode of buzz in the tech community, Qualcomm’s cream of the crop will start appearing in devices within Q3 or Q4. The Nvidia Tegra 4 on the other hand, is expected to invade the market within August. Source
