The Motorola-made Nexus 6 (aka Nexus X and/or Shamu) just showed up in a leaked benchmark. It's one of the hottest new devices coming to consumers later this year, and it seems to have hot performance to match. The Geekbench results for the device are noting short of spectacular, with a multi-core score of nearly 3200.
Of course, benchmarks don't really translate into real-world performance, but they can at least give us a gauge of just how much headroom the device has. It's perhaps worth noting that the only other device which has scored this well in the multi-core part of Geekbench is another unreleased phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It's also interesting that in the single-core benchmark the iPhone 6 obliterates every other device, including the Moto Shamu. That's not too surprising because that's the way Apple focuses its hardware design.
The rumors have pegged the Motorola Shamu to have a Snapdragon 805 and 3GB of RAM. It's great to see such a large evolution in performance.
