Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) Performance Preview: Qualcomm Mobile Development Tablet Testedby Brian Klug on June 18, 2013 8:00 PM EST
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.
