    The new Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core smartphone chip is maximizing its potential by showing up in several of the new smartphones just demonstrated at CES, but one of particular interest to our forum members is the Droid Bionic. Because it's one of the most impressive Droids ever produced for now, we are all chomping at the bit to find out how well it performs, and initial Quadrant tests indicate that it is pretty ridiculous indeed. Check out those benchmarks in the video... it screams past nearly everything available right now to the tune of nearly twice as fast! My left eye is twitching I want one so bad...

    Sorry, but benchmark scores don't tell you the kind of experience you can expect on a device. They only tell you how the benchmark does. Still though, nice phone. Too bad it will most likely have a locked bootloader. that in itself turns me off. If only my DX was unlocked.

    Your right....unless your doing something that is graphic intensive it doesn't mean much.

    It's just one of those "mine is bigger than yours" things :icon_eek:

    Wait till they optimize Quadrant for dual-core phones and the Bionic is running Gingerbread. You'll probably see a much higher score than that probably, I'm betting 3000 or better. Will be interesting to see!!

    My Droid does 1600 overclocked... I'm not particularly impressed.

    Also you need to run quadrant a few times to get an accurate score.

    Why are people saying they are unimpressed that the stock bionic is only marginally scoring higher than a OC'ed phone?

    Doesn't that score blow a stock droid out of the water?

    Only fair comparison would be a stock vs stock or OC vs OC.

    I find it ignorant that some of you even make that the point of argument.
