So far, we've only got to evaluate the performance of the I9505 Galaxy S4, which is powered by the Snapdragon 600 chipset. SamMobile on the other hand were lucky enough to fiddle with the Exynos 5 Octa variant of the Galaxy S4 and make it sweat in some synthetic benchmark tests.
The tests in question are AnTuTu and Quadrant, both being all-round suites that gauge pretty much every component of the device - CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, etc. As you'd imagine the quad Cortex-A15s don't disappoint and posted amazing scores beating every device we have seen so far.
Higher is better
What we noticed from a screenshot of the AnTuTu benchmark was that the frequency of the CPU is reported as 1.8GHz. Samsung announced the Octa 5 Exynos variation of the Galaxy S4 is running at 1.6GHz for the Cortex-A15 cores and 1.2GHz for the Cortex-A7 cores. It could be possible that the market version of the device to arrive a bit more beefed than what Samsung's initial announcement suggested.
Higher is better
In case you're wondering, you can check out in which countries Samsung is going to launch the Exynos 5 Octa and Snapdragon 600 editions of the Galaxy S4.
you are mistaken.. ALL machines, Linux, Windows, iOS, Android.. ALL machines have hardware, there is no "software" based experience, it's ALL hardware. you are sorely mistaken. You are confusing this with a "virtual" machine...
At least use proper scores for the HTC, every and I do mean *EVERY* benchmark on the web, in person, or other more reputable tech sites has the HTC one at 12100 (and higher) for Quadrant. Its NEVER below that, so this test is bogus, it still won...
so true!! :)
