    While the new dual-core Tegra 2 from Nvidia was undoubtedly the 'first' amazing dual-core processor technology to show up in smartphones this year, it is not the 'only' thing coming. In fact, not wanting to 'rest on their laurels' Qualcomm, makers of the 'much-lauded' Snapdragon processor, are set to release their newest dual-core offering towards the end of this quarter. Not only is their new dual-core Snapdragon baby expected to ship with some awesome features like 1080p video, HDMI and 1GHz to 1.5GHz speeds, but it also should release with the Adreno 305 GPU, which supposedly can keep pace with current-generation console graphics, like the PS3 and XBox360! Can you imagine 'MGS4' or 'Halo' on your Android phone? Regardless of how this heated competition turns out, it will be us consumers that win-out in the end!

    The xbox and ps3 are both sporting a 3.2Ghz cpu if my memory is right... I have a hard time beliving that it can keep pace. I know Xbox is sporting a new xbox live mobile feature but that has to be dialed down somewhat. Just saying. :)

    This makes me really want to wait to see what comes after the Thunderbolt.

    Wow! Man I just might have to hold off on the Droid Bionic. I'm due for an upgrade in July and maybe just maybe I might get lucky enough to have a phone with this type of GPU technology come out around that time.

    Also the Droid Bionic, maybe the Droid 3 will be next with this type of GPU technology.

    Exactly... I don't know what crack those people were smoking but you simply can NOT get MULTI-core performance from a 'dual' core, duh... also 1.5G is a FAR CRY (pun intended) from 3+G... it might be 'comparable' to the arcade games perhaps but that it.... The graphical processor alone in both those consoles hold more calculation ability than anything you're going to find in a phone in the next few years (simple limitation of HEAT and POWER with the current technology)

    Don't forget that consoles have to push out 1080p resolution on massive TVs where every detail can be seen. On a 4" screen, its much different. I used to be able to play Crysis on my computer with ultra settings, but in a very small window. Full screen it and thats a much different story.

    I was saying the Thunderbolt more because HTC uses the Qualcomm processors and the Thunderbolt is the only LTE phone coming out with a single core. I was considering the TB but I may wait now and see when a dual core Evo-sized beast comes out.

    SIGH..... yet another thread of misinformation.... It is a complete JOKE to think that the adreno 300 series will be as fast as a PS3 or xbox360. LAUGHABLE joke.

    This forum is turning into a landfill of misinformation. :(

    However, you have to remember that it's only powering a 3.5"-4" screen with much lower resolution then what the xbox 360 or ps3 pumps out. The end result will be graphic performance that is on par with those consoles.

    Yep....I'm itching for a dual-core LTE device but haven't seen the phone with the specs I want yet. My 2-yr contract is up some time near the end of the year and seems to be fast approaching now.

    Actually kind of glad I'm being forced to wait. A dual-core LTE with 1gig ram shouldn't be obsolete for a long time. It may not match the future 3-in-1 devices (tablet, netbook/laptop, phone) but unless you have a need for that it will kick for years.

    False , Xbox360 games have at best an internal resolution of 720p and the image is upscaled to 1080p , so it only calculates 720p , the image you see from Xbox is not true 1080p . The Droid Bionic has a resolution of 960 x 540 , Alan Wake , the Xbox game has an internal resolution of 960x544 . The resolution that needs to be calculated on the phone is the same with the Xbox .
    This is complete BS , PS3 has around 500 GFLOPS of computing power (that's 500.000 MegaFLOPS ) 230 GFLOPS only from the Cell Processor , the same processor that's used in one of the most powerful supercomputer on the planet , Your Droid gets under 100 MegaFLOPS ( 0.01 GFLOPS ) . Now you see why this is a complete joke ? It's like comparing desktops with laptops . Maybe in many years from now there will be a phone capable of reaching 230 GFLOPS , but that won't be for sure the 3rd Snapdragon generation .

    Bolded is false. Revolution and Samsung have single-core. To say the Bionic is the only LTE phone with dual core would be more accurate.

    Our imaginations are running wild. It can't be helped. It's really an exciting time just to be having this discussion.

    Seriously though. I'm still trying to perfect Ps2 emulation on my desktop. There's no way anything made in the next 2 years will be comparable to xbox or Ps3. Although just like everyone on these boards in the last few days, I could be wrong.

    I've seen on some sites claims that the Revolution is dual core... although I do believe it is not.
