Benchmark scores of Lenovo K900 with Intel Clover Trail+ surface, exceed that of Galaxy S4
While we easily forget that even Intel has processors that power many smartphones and tablets, the latest one from the company is likely to draw a lot of attention. Benchmark scores of Lenovo K900 with Intel Clover Trail+ have surfaced thanks to hi-tech.mail and it seems Intel has really pulled this one off.
Lenovo has shown with the K900 that the company means serious business when it comes to smartphones. Packing a 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 processor, the K900 additionally comes with a 5.5 inch full HD display. It also features 2GB RAM, a 13 megapixel Sony Exmor BSI sensor and a 2 megapixel shooter at the front. The phone comes in a surprising 6.9mm thick aluminium body which is full 1 mm thinner than the Xperia Z. The phone also houses a massive 3,500 mAh battery.
Now, for the benchmarks. You’ll be surprised to know that the little Intel heart inside the phone manages to outperform even the latest Snapdragon 600 processor from Qualcomm. That’s right folks, the K900 is faster than Galaxy S4 (the Snapdragon 600 version) and HTC One. Thanks to the Hyper Threading technology, the has phone four cores beating at 2GHz. The phone managed a score of 25,827 on AnTuTu benchmark, which is a tad more than the Snapdragon version of Galaxy S4.
While the phone might not get released in most of the markets, we know now what the Clover Trail+ is capable of. If the chip delivers a solid battery performance as well, we expect multiple handset manufacturers to jump ship to Intel’s processors.
Everyone knows T4 isn't scheduled to ship commercially until maybe July. Don't you find it just a bit hypocritical to tout the performance of an ARM product that doesn't exist in the marketplace while criticizing Intel's forthcoming products?
The recognition that Intel's Clovertrail+'s dual core performance & efficiency is already competitive or superior to currently shipping ARM's quad core products is beginning to be understood. Baytrail should widen the gap. The next several quarters are going to get interesting.
I've bought my last ARM based device. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2, and couldn't find a reason to buy the S3. The S4 just doesn't interest me. A few neat toys, most of which I wouldn't use. I was going to be the Nexus 7 but I heard that the battery life was horrible on it. Now I'm telling the wife that I'm waiting on Intel. I'm thinking that you may see dual boot tablets with Windows 8/Android or Tizen later on this year or the first half of next year. My thinking is that this Christmas we should see a few more options in tablets but by next Christmas it will be insane.
