Qualcomm Claims it's S4 Snapdragon Runs Roughshod on Nvidia's Tegra 3
Rob Chandhok, Qualcomm's SVP of software strategy, goes on to say that the "S4 dual-core outperforms most quad-core chips - not because of one thing, but because of the overall systems approach." Rob adds the Adreno 320 GPU will deliver 4x better performance without sacrificing battery life. Clock speed is only one part of the equation when it comes to performance, and Qualcomm addresses this by stating that they "just don't think about how fast the CPU is going to be, but the balance between CPU and GPU - all the components of the hardware chain and how they relate to operating systems."
It's a delicate thing to talk about one design being better than the other, so I'm going to leave you to decide whether four is better than two and whether size matters ~ Rob Chandhok
The snapdragon S4 will be featured in the HTC One X, Asus's Padfone and future Windows 8 handsets. We can't wait for the SoC to drop into the market where it will see it's fair share of comparo's and benchmarks. When a company makes a strong claim you can bet it will be taken to task.
