The Samsung Galaxy S line, which was introduced to all four major US carriers last week, has been receiving much buzz behind its Hummingbird processor. The Hummingbird SoC houses an impressive CPU/GPU combination (1ghz Cortex-A8 CPU + PowerVR SGX540 GPU), which is arguably the most powerful hardware for any smartphone on the market today.
And we all know that HTC's top-of-the-line smartphones, including the Desire, Incredible, and Evo 4g, are all running the 1ghz Snapdragon processor with the Adreno GPU (AMD z430). So, how does the Hummingbird stack up against HTC's Snapdragon/Adreno combo? Well thanks to a Youtube user by the name of androidsbands2010, we are able to compare how well both chips handle 3D gaming. The video displays the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S, side-by-side, concurrently running the Quake II port for Android. And to no surprise, the Hummingbird substantially outperforms the Snapdragon. Check out the video below:
