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:

GLBenchmark 2.7 - Fill Test

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:

GLBenchmark 2.7 - Egypt HD

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.

    YESSS!!! THANK YOU QUALCOMM exactly What I expected!!! Reply

    Nice performance, but the lack of power utilization benchmarks prevents me from breaking out the party favors for the time being. Reply

    I agree, power utilization and heat are very important in mobile. Hope this don't come with a fan :) Reply

    I have been working on this for a long time, trust me, it does not need a fan! Reply

    Comparing phones to a tablet is a bit odd. Glad there was a Nexus 10 at least. Reply

    You all almost sound like this is Qualcomm's first go at making a mobile processor. I'd find it very hard to believe that they'd not take into consideration power consumption and heat or any other negative factors they considered when they made their other chips. Having said that, all that could be out the door in the race bigger and better, who knows. Guess we all will have to wait and see how this things performs in an actual smartphone. Reply

    How does this compare to the Ivybridge or Haswell Y series processors in terms of CPU/GPU performance? Would like to see those comparisons. So we can extrapolate how this will compare to a fanless Core product from Intel. The gap is there in terms of connectivity but the perf gaps on CPU/GPU would be interesting to note. Reply

    Ivy Y no longer seems interesting to me but for the moment, Haswell 15W (both HD4600/5000) would be super interesting to add to the "great equalizer" page of charts. Doesn't Anand have an Acer with i7-4500U as well as the MBA with i5-4250U? Demand he run some benchmarks for you so you can update those charts. The comparison to i5-3317U made sense against APQ8064T, but 8974's contemporary is Haswell, not Ivy.

    And when you have Haswell Y samples, those would be neat, too. :)

    15W still requires a fan. Reply
  • sna1970 - Tuesday, July 09, 2013 - link

    not really,

    the Haswell can run from 6 watts up to 15 watts.
