[AnandTech] Dual Core Snapdragon GPU Performance Explored

Way back at CES we saw our first glimpse of MSM8x60 and Qualcomm's Snapdragon Mobile Development Platform (MDP) with an MSM8660 SoC inside. Though we couldn't run any benchmarks on it, we got a sneak preview of dual core snapdragon. This year at MWC Qualcomm gave us a considerable amount of hands-on time with the same MDP hardware. We did a bit of testing, and then Qualcomm did something awesome - they let us take an MDP with the MSM8660 inside home with us.

Hmmm, performance is getting pretty impressive. I still don't see using my phone as a true mobile gaming platform in the near future; the battery life just doesn't cut it when I need the phone for actual phone uses I wonder if they'll ever drop down smartphone battery usage enough (or develop insanely better batteries) to allow for this kind of usage.

Until then, I might actually buy something like the NGP.

His infatuation with using a benchmark no one has access to is quite annoying.

JUST USE NEOCORE.

I guess that the touchpad (lousily named HP tablet) will be competitive with the samsung-made A5 in the ipad. Here's to hoping that the other specs of the touchpad are bumped just a bit.

Looks like a pretty nice jump in performance. I wonder when these phones will have enough CPU and GPU power to start emulating Playstation 2? I think the minimum today is something like a 7800 GT and a 2-3 Ghz Dual core so it has some ways to go. I think they have up to Dreamcast down.

Who cares about 3D performance as the games for Mobile are pointless. Surprised to see Galaxy S keeping up well with its GPU. Also the only reason i would want a faster phone is to handle flash better. Battery in the other hand is also a problem. i get 2-3 hours max using it to view flash videos with my phone.

I'm not a fan of mobile computing.. Don't know why, but I'm not.

It's the carrying 200$+ piece of breakable/stealable electronics that ruins it for me. Along with constantly needing to recharge.
AMD, I give up.

Its the screen. Super Amoled takes 3x as much power to display white compared to a LCD. Its the downside of the upside.
