by On June 21, 2013

Snapdragon 800 Yeah, there’s a new kid on the block and his name is Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. The latest system on chip from one of the biggest semiconductor manufacturers in the world seems to have vanquished its competition by a long shot. There were benchmarks in the past which suggested that the Snapdragon 800 is better than Samsung’s Exynos Octa (which has 8 CPU’s folks!) but there were doubts about the tests themselves, about the implementation, you know what I mean, the Snapdragon 800 seemed too good to be true. But now we have an official benchmark test which shows beyond any doubt that Qualcomm is the king, it runs the show, its SoC has, let me quote, “ludicrous speed”. And that says it all folks. Qualcomm’s baby boomer, codenamed Snapdragon 800 MSM8974, was tested on a smart phone and also on a tablet and the test’s results were impressive, to say the least. The future back bone of the industry, which will equip all the high end devices, including the Galaxy S4 LTE Advanced,the Sony Xperia  ZU, the LG Optimus  G2, the HTC One Max, well, you got the general idea, has remarkable performance especially when it comes to graphic applications, check this out: Snapdragon 800 As you can see from the test, the competition was fierce, the Snapdragon 800 proved its valor against the current top-of the line players, like the Exynos 5 Octa, the Snapdragon 4 Pro, the Snapdragon 600, the Exynos 4 Quad, even the nVidia  Tegra 4. They didn’t stand a chance. The battle was won, the war is over: Snapdragon 800Qualcomm’s latest flagship was tested on a tablet with a 11.6 inches wide display and 1920×1080 resolution, a 2.3GHz MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 system on chip, an Adreno 330 GPU running @450 MHz, 2GB oLPDDR3 RAM @800 MHz, 32 GB of internal memory, micro-SD, USB 3.0, a 12 Megapixels shooter, Wi-Fi, LTE support, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, etc. The test smartphone was basically the same, except the screen which had a resolution of 720p and was 4.3 inches wide. The Snapdragon 800 performed with flying colors on both devices. Source: Anandtech
