Nexus 7 2013 benchmarked: Snapdragon S4 Pro in full effect

Here with the 2013 reboot of the Nexus 7, Qualcomm scores a bit hit with a new version of the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (with Adreno 320 GPU), coming up to battle the original tablet's NVIDIA Tegra 3.

GSM Moto X spills with early processor power test [UPDATE]

This afternoon two rather up-close-and-personal videos have appeared showing the Motorola smartphone Moto X, the following involving a CPU/GPU test which shows a bit about this machine's innards. What we're told here by the user leaking the smartphone (once again) is that this smartphone works with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core SoC - but what we're able to see quite clearly in the tests he runs is that this is merely an upgraded MSM8960 with an Adreno 320 GPU, meaning it's one step above the Motorola RAZR HD, but still below the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4.
