"Lower is better" for the last graph. His conclusion is correct so I don't know what you mean when you say "he is reading the graph wrong."

Comparing those results to the official GL team results shows that the S3 in that graph is the international, not US, version. Contrary to what one of the other posters above stated, the GPU in the US GS3's S4 SoC is vastly inferior to other high end smartphones.

My apologies, my brain assumed he was inferring the iPhone 5 was lagging behind in context with the rest of the post.

It won't have an effect on as many things. Quad-core is apps that support four cores, and then multitasking. Dual-core is everything. Launching apps, saving a photo, etc., even the simplest of things.

A quad core S4 would destroy the A6. No ifs no buts.

And modern phone OS's have lots of apps and processes running by default.
And yes it would because the S4 is Krait.

Here's results for the iPhone 5's GLBenchmark 2.5 test: http://www.glbenchmark.com/phonedetails.jsp?D=Apple+iPhone+5&benchmark=glpro25

28.9 FPS at 1080p on Egypt HD (off screen) compared to the iPad 3's 22 FPS. It's more powerful... and it's running 1136x640. Wow.

Please tell me what performance benefit a quad-core has other than in supported apps and for keeping things smooth when multitasking.

A dual-core benefits everything -- launching apps, opening attachments, saving images, etc., just to name a few small things.

I like how you present your argument in a way that belittles the importance of multi tasking/smoothness while multi tasking, as if to say it doesn't matter to anybody tongue.gif

"Yeah but it only makes the phone smoother while multi-tasking. Who even does that anyway lol?"

The quad core A9 found in the international Galaxy S3 offers some improvements in heavily multi-threaded apps but performance loss in a majority of the applications compared to the A6 SoC, however the GPU in the iPhone 5 is vastly more powerful, offering twice the performance of Mali 400.

I'll take the A6 SoC over the inferior Exynos 4410.

Architecture > Core count.

Oh, wait!
You didn't think I was calling you an Apple fanboy did you?
Because if you did, that would be quite a baseless assumption, given that I never mentioned Apple.
Coupled with your denial regarding the aforementioned brand fan clubs in your sig and your distasteful (hateful even) posting towards those of an Android inclined nature, I have to wonder if you might possibly be schizophrenic because you're describing your own demeanour!
Keep doing that thing you're doing there though. It is most delightful to observe!

ZING!

I'm not belittling the importance of a smooth experience, I just don't believe that a smartphone is going to be stressed to the point where a dual-core (with an improved architecture) can't handle it for 99.9% of all people, and for the other 0.1% I don't see how they could be doing that sort of work load for any extended period of time.

The dual-core w/ a better architecture improves everything. I'd be surprised if a 1.4GHz quad-core A9 would ever be necessary over a 1.5GHz dual-core A15.

"Everything", except what it doesn't improve over a quad core.

You may believe what you'd like, but I'm not about to have any kind of discussion of length about beliefs.

We're not allowed to discuss religion and besides, this is a science based forum smile.gif
