Intel Atom Z2580 AnTuTu benchmark falls 20% following revision

Intel Atom Z2580 AnTuTu benchmark falls 20% following revision

Earlier this month, the AnTuTu benchmarking tool raised a bit of a firestorm when it showed Intel's Atom Z2580 out performing offerings from Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and Samsung. This led to BDTI, a consulting firm, showing that not all instructions were being executed by the Intel processor, causing a false boost in results. As such, AnTuTu has issued a revised version of the benchmarking tool, and Intel has fallen 20-percent as a result.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series quad-core benchmarks

Qualcomm may have introduced the Snapdragon 800 processor a little while back, and while we suspect some may be wondering why we have yet to see any real announcements since that point in time, it seems there was an actual plan in action.

HTC One benchmarks: off the charts

This week we've had the opportunity to have a look at the new HTC One with not only a collection of hands-on experiences, but with processor benchmarking as well. Using the standard Quadrant Benchmark test here we're finding that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor is blowing up the charts, destroying the previous high-mark in the basic readout by more than double - those tiny towers on the left are what's left of the original HTC One X, the ASUS Transformer Prim TF201 (with a Tegra 3 processor), and some lesser beings. Even compared with the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC running on the Google Nexus 4 only reaches nearly 5000 as a final score in Quadrant - the HTC One reaches 12,417!
