    When NVidia introduced their Tegra 2 dual core processor we were amazed by the performance this little chip produced, well Qualcomm has something they think is better. The latest processor to be tested in an independent benchmark test, the 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8660, did an outstanding job at proving Qualcomm’s dominance. The processor smashed the competition by keeping the same size and pushing the performance level enough to give it a 38.5 native resolution frames per second. This score is amazing compared to the 31 FPS score the OMAP powered Optimus 3D, or the 25.2 score received by the Tegra 2 powered Optimus 2X. This processor has yet to make it to device manufacturer’s tool box, but for the time being we can enjoy the performance the LG Optimus 3D’s provides till Qualcomm pushes this new processor out or even when NVidia releases their next line of processors --do I hear a Quad Core powered train coming? The battle continues.

    Um ya, each core is 500mhz faster than the Tegras. Were you expecting something different?

    What kind of OS were these test devices running?

    I mean, was it manufacturer UI bogged down, or even any kind of real world application? I can flash a very basic light ROM, not install any apps, and get a better benchmark score over stock moto.

    If you look its not that much better than the others and it is clocked at 1.5 where as the others are at 1 ghz which doesnt show much since the ones under it would beat that most likely if it was at 1.5 ghz

    Is this the best test for processors? I can't imagine the Iphone 3gs has a better processor than the Iphone 4, as this chart suggests.

    Guys, its not all about the frequency the processor is clocked at! its how well the architecture of the processor is implemented. Just because one phone is clocked at a higher frequency does not mean its faster than another. This processor sounds promising though. Cant wait for summer quarter phones to start arriving!

    I'm not an i-phan by any means, but my daughter just got an iphone 4 this weekend (no matter what kind of arguements I threw up) and their ain't no way in hell my original Droid out runs it. I'm sorry. I'm a long time member of this great forum, but this REEKS of fanboi-ism.

    I'm sure it's the benchmark used.

    There's so many different variables involved that almost any benchmark can be skewed.

    Part of the reason for iPhone 4 numbers is the resolution.
