Quadrant on 1.0 Scores out of Curiosity

I am just curious as to what scores you are getting since the developer said this would be lower than phones with stagefright...my question is how low are you guys getting?

1.0 with the NexTang theme and the 1.2 LV kernel is giving me around 800 with 845 as my highest.

Others?

Thanks!

read releases:sapphire-1.0.0 [CVPCS Sapphire Wiki]
quadrant scores are meaningless.
I don't use it to judge.
it shouldn't matter, right?


I obviously read the release notes, that's why I called this curiosity, sir.

I guarantee I can't be the only curious one. I read "low" and "doesn't matter" and it still struck a wonder of exactly how low. And who is judging? So please post your scores, for my own personal curiosity. If you don't want to...simply do not. I won't judge you either.


Thanks!

My experience with it is that Quadrant (and the Media Player) are both much slower at decoding H.264 video with Opencore. Stagefright does H.264 decodes WAY more efficiently... so the Quad scores are higher.

And video playback is way smoother. It isn't JUST quad scores, folks: some of us experience unbearable video stuttering with the new media engine.

Long answer: video decoding is hugely CPU intensive. That's why its used as part of the CPU testing scheme. Since Opencore is several orders of magnitude slower at decoding h.264 it badly skews the overall quadrant score. The rest of the phone is just as snappy as Sapphire at its best normally is, but the wretched video decoding score drags its down.

For folks who don't watch the kind of video that Opencore has trouble with it won't make any difference in how fast and snappy the phone is. For those who do watch those videos (like me) its a problem. Switching back to Stagefright fixes it.

I haven't tested Pandora on Sapphire 1.0 with Stagefright, though. I've never had any trouble with it so I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope...

840 as a quadrant score with a 1.2 kernel seems pretty low. I average 1100 to 1300 at every run, as well as the guy next to me at work. We have a stupid contest every day about it. We know it's trivial but it's a good way to decide who has to buy coffee. Much better than a coin flip!

Anyway, his top score is 1598 using chevy's 1.2 ulv with bb 0.4. I hit 1612 with ss 4.5 and the same kernel once but couldn't repeat it, and overall I'm happier with pete's rom so I didn't stick around in chevyland too long

Well, that's the nice thing about having both options: you can run whatever media framework works best for you and is most relevant (for example, I never really watch videos on my droid, but I listen to Pandora a lot).

Well that's a darn tooting great reason to pick a ROM.

I can get those numbers if I re-enable stagefright, Pandora just sounds like garbage then. I was curious of what people where getting with Sapphire 1.0. I know what others get, but it seems like no one wants to post it because they are skeered of what was posted in some developer notes =P

So much for soothing some curiosity.

My guess is (based on a few data points) is the use of opencore will give you an overall quadrant score that's roughly about half of what you would get using stagefright.

Hopefully that's enough to satisfy your curiosity. ;)

With stock kernel i got 720 something with stagefright disabled. I'm running the 250-800LV kernel and haven't tested it (I don't have quadrant installed). Enabling stagefright gives me numbers right up there with every other ROM, but slacker and pandora sound much worse. I use my Droid for Droid things so I don't bother with benchmark scores.

I get various scores ranging from 650-750, running stock sapphire 1.0.

I have no idea what scores I would have gotten on another rom, as benchmarks are useless to me. Benchmarks don't tell you how your machine/phone performs while actually doing something. For example, run a benchmark while your playing video from either a streaming service or from your sdcard. You can't, or I have not found the option to do this yet.

I HAVE noticed that there is no longer any lag while playing any streaming media or video once it starts to play. There is something, what i would describe as a buffer loading, at the beginning of playback. Then it becomes flawless.

That's basically what I was wondering..just how exactly it compared. Its a number crunching phone peen measuring thing more than something to pass rom performance judgement on.


Thanks for your responses!
