GFXBench 2.7

GFXBench (formerly GLBenchmark) gives us some low level insight into Adreno 330. As usual, we'll start with the low level tests and move onto the game simulation benchmarks:

Low level geometry and fill rate metrics are dominated by Imagination Technologies. If we look at the simulated game benchmarks though, Snapdragon 800/Adreno 330 clearly pull ahead:

The most impressive results come from one of our most stressful tests. On equal footing, Adreno 330 delivers 62.5% better performance than the iPad 4's PowerVR SGX 554MP4. Note that these are largely shader bound tests. Snapdragon 800 should have less memory bandwidth than Apple's A6X, which could make for some interesting comparisons at high resolutions in actual games.

    I wonder how Rouge is going to compare to this. My guess is Apple will ship a rouge powered iPhone and iPad before devices start shipping with Qualcomm. Reply

    Do you mean Rogue? Reply

    Doh! Yeah, Rogue. Reply

    *Drool* I also love the level of transparency we're getting from Qualcomm even compared to a product cycle or two ago. Reply

    From what I'm seeing here this an amazing chip overall. That GPU really surprised me but I'm gonna wait till the battery life/power draw can be tested. Reply

    if this thing keeps it´s power restrained to 3-4 watts the gpu perfomance per watts is astonishing. Reply

    Wow, crushing performance. Two things stand-out.

    1. It's beating it's almost doubling it's closest Android competitor on some benchmarks.
    2. A 1-year old Apple chip is still killing some benchmarks.

    Way more exciting than the ~15% x86 gains / year.

    One thing's for sure, the upcoming ARM-based HTPC's are going to absolutely kick ass.

    The hardware is getting there for ARM HTPC but we need an Android OS with DVR functionality. Reply

    And this is why I'm dying to get an internship with Qualcomm next summer... they're going to become the Intel of mobile :) Reply

    They already are. Look at they're market cap. Reply
