The impressive Samsung Galaxy S III benchmarks are here

The Samsung Unpacked event is over and the Galaxy S III is now official. The new leader of the Samsung Android gang is powered by the new Exynos 4 Quad chipset, featuring four cores clocked at 1.4GHz and 1GB of RAM.

Naturally, we were eager to check out if the SoC has the performance to cash the checks written by its specs. We ran several benchmarks on the Samsung Galaxy S III and we are now about to share its results with you.

On Quadrant, the Galaxy S III got the highest score we have seen so far - 5642 points. The HTC One X did come close as its quad-core CPU was able to match the performance of the S III processor, but the Mali-400MP GPU gave the Samsung smartphone the victory here.

On SunSpider, the CPU-stressing JavaScript benchmark, the Galaxy S III's four 32nm 1.4GHz Cortex-A9 cores posted super fast times, once again leaving all of its competitors way behind. We suspect Samsung has also done some fine tuning to its new smartphone's JavaScript engine, which helped it do so well here.
