    Besides the mhz boost, is the Qualcomm SoC slower than the Exynos SoC with dual core Cortex A9? Reply

    At 1.5 GHz, a dual-core Scorpion should preform as well (give or take a few) as the Exynos at 1.2 GHz. Reply

    Is the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm SoC actually dual-core though? Cant find an answer to this. Reply

    Yes, the 8x60 has two CPU cores. Also, the GPU is significantly more powerful than that in the 8x55 SoC (Adreno 220 vs Adreno 205). Reply

    I knew it. A bunch of people on Engadget thought I was crazy because according to them the GSII would never use another processor besides the Exynos. Reply

    Engadget is the MySpace of tech sites. Reply

    That's dumb of them, as there are Galaxy S II variants that use the Tegra 2 in cheaper markets. Reply

    Wait, isn't this the same SoC that the Touchpad was "bashed" for using? Any chance we can get a proper comparison between the two to highlight where webOS went wrong? Because according to the SGSII review this SoC is a beast. Reply

    Couple things.
    1) The Touchpad wasn't "bashed" because it's a bad SoC. The problem lies in the fact that WebOS is not fully optimized for it yet
    2) The SGSII review said the SoC compares well to the current TI OMAP SoC. It is actually the graphics portion (ARM Mali 400) of the SGSII that is the beast. Qualcomm's latest phones use the Adreno 220 GPU...it would be shocking to see them slip an ARM GPU in

    HTC Jetstream is probably a better comparison as it uses the 8x60 also. Reply
