The first run down of the Galaxy Nexus running Quadrant Benchmark
1700 same as nexus s, not bad but could have been better.
Can't watch the video, so this may be addressed within... but how exactly do you compare benchmark scores to a phone that is the only one currently in existence running that OS? Or am I way off base and Quadrant Benchmarks don't have anything to do with OS and software?
Soon as someone releases a kernel to remove the underclocking and jump it to the full 1.5 it is capable of, I expect that benchmark to change drastically.
My D1 hits 1300, my wife's D2 hits 3100....it should be better

lets not forget that this phone has a larger screen resolution so a lower score is expected. i think droid razr got 2600 on this test with it's lower resolution display.
then again, tests vary by hundreds of points from one to the next. so this doesn't really mean much.
And benchmarks are extremely subjecting, beyond that, this is rather definitely a prerelease phone.
Why does my Droid 3 with a slower processor get a higher score than that?
I forgot about the display resolution.
Did you guys notice that Quadrant sees 2 cores, nice! On the benchmark section where to two planets are rotating, that was as choppy as I've ever seen. That is a pretty darn high resolution to push. I'm guessing the FPS benchmarks are going to be very low.
But does this mean it will play worse with games, due to the high res screen?
Not with any game that is out now.. Not even close! I'm sure the only way we will notice is by running a silly benchmark app!
People, Quadrant is ALWAYS going to show low FPS numbers for devices with PowerVR GPUs; that's just how it is.
PowerVR uses a method of texture compression that is unique to PowerVR. It is more efficient when used with optimized software (basically, hidden parts of a scene are not rendered at all). Unfortunately, Quadrant isn't optimized for this type of texture compression; so for PowerVR devices uncompressed textures are necessary.
