    Quake 2 GPU Test - Samsung Galaxy S vs HTC Desire [Video]



    The Samsung Galaxy S line, which was introduced to all four major US carriers last week, has been receiving much buzz behind its Hummingbird processor. The Hummingbird SoC houses an impressive CPU/GPU combination (1ghz Cortex-A8 CPU + PowerVR SGX540 GPU), which is arguably the most powerful hardware for any smartphone on the market today.

    And we all know that HTC's top-of-the-line smartphones, including the Desire, Incredible, and Evo 4g, are all running the 1ghz Snapdragon processor with the Adreno GPU (AMD z430). So, how does the Hummingbird stack up against HTC's Snapdragon/Adreno combo? Well thanks to a Youtube user by the name of androidsbands2010, we are able to compare how well both chips handle 3D gaming. The video displays the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S, side-by-side, concurrently running the Quake II port for Android. And to no surprise, the Hummingbird substantially outperforms the Snapdragon. Check out the video below:




    What do you guys think? Is this enough to sway you toward a Galaxy S? Let us now.

    This looks like a sweet phone and the specs are impressive, but I'm sticking to my Moto Droid. Being the nerd that I am, rooting and trying to different ROMs is important to me. I would prefer to wait and see if custom ROM developers get behind this phone?
    I'm assuming that unless you grab the source from google yourself than compile it, than you're going to be stuck with the stock ROM. Is that right?

    good question, i hope somebody can post one eventually. in my experience, quake 2 runs great on the Droid 1, i'm sure it runs as well, if not better on the X

    Never thought much about gaming on a phone but with the new bigger screens and fluid gameplay like that I just might be interested.

    So where does one find games like that for our phones???

    I root to try all the cool roms out there. overclocking for some extra speed is a bonus.

    Not really shens as the snapdragon SoC uses a weaker GPU than our OMAP based DROIDs or so I've read.

    Would be interesting to see a DROID, or any other OMAP based phone, running next to it.
