Qualcomm S4 chipset benchmarks promise amazing performance - read the full textA fresh batch of benchmarks of Qualcomm's S4 platform show just how powerful the new Krait cores are. The tests were run on a reference platform, but since we don't care about the rest of the hardware (screen, camera, etc.), just the chipset performance, these result are a good indication of what...

In any case the power consumed by the processor is utterly unimportant. It's awake for like couple hours each day for normal use. What really consumes battery life is the screen and the radios.

Anyway I am looking forward to what Sammy will cook up this year. When they display hardware it takes the market by a storm and becomes the reference for at least a year. For example sgs2 is still one of the most potent devices.

At this stage I don't really care that much about raw performance in a cellphone. My SGS2 has plenty of power to spare. What I do care about is efficiency.

Is Tegra3 still the king when it comes to power efficiency? I heard it has a fifth slower core to handle easier tasks and that gives it better battery life than the rest of the competition.

Cpu is very strong, but gnu is quite weak compared to the new ones.
My Galaxy S2 with 400mhz Mali 400mp4 destroy this Adreno 225 in every benchmark.
