    It's 600mhz vs 1ghz, which is good at showing the architecture scales well with die shrinks, but if you clock a 3430 to 1ghz you'd probably get similar performance. Although, not in the same power/heat envelope.

    I believe we'll see a 3640@720mhz in the Shadow which while still a good jump in performance I think 2.2 on the old droid will keep me happy until and handset with dual core ARM-9 is available.

    Cortex A9 drool. OMAP 4640's make me happy in the pants.

    hah just saw I posted what you did earlier in the read. Guess I should have read it all the way through before I responded.

    Yeah I went digging for details on that one and also came up with this little tidbit of mathematical genius.

    The Quadrant Benchmark that has the Shadow on it... Well let's just see how this stacks up, shall we?

    Moto Droid running BB v1.0 @ 1.2 Ghz scores a 677
    Moto Droid running BB v1.0 @ 800 Mhz scores 445

    Which comes out to roughly 55 points per 100 Mhz. Now let's extrapolate that some when compared to the Shadow. We can do this because we have a Nexus One running 2.1 as a baseline and running Froyo.

    Nexus One w/ 2.1 approx. 500
    Nexus One w/ 2.2 approx. 1375

    Which is a 2.75x improvement. Now comes the fun part!

    The Shadow which is supposedly running a 3630 @ 720 Mhz would score roughly the same as the Droid @ 800. So we'll call it 450 for even numbers.

    450 * 2.75 = 1237.5 and lo and behold on this graph:

    Motorola Droid Shadow Gets Benchmarked; Leaves Everyone Else Behind!

    The Shadow scores around 1200! So taking the above facts into account we can say with near absolute certainty that.

    1. The OMAP 3630 and OMAP 3430 clock for clock is nearly identical in processing power.

    2. The Motorola Shadow which is showed in this graph is running Android 2.2

    3. The Motorola Droid running Android 2.2 will have identical performance to that of the Shadow at the same clock speed.

    Whether or not it releases with Android 2.2 is still a guess but you can bet that it this benchmark was run with Android 2.2

    Hope you enjoyed tonights little lesson!!

    considering the differences between the two processors is mainly speed range, it's not surprising. the OMAP has always been identified as a more effecient processor than the snapdragon.

    knowing this lets me hold on to my DROID just a little longer.
