    IdeaPhone scores points in Intel's ARM wrestle
    Benchmark smacks Galaxy S4

    Anyone who thought that Intel might take years to catch up to ARM on the mobile front might want to think again.

    In an early benchmark test an Intel based Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 gave the Samsung Galaxy S4 a good kicking.

    The IdeaPhone has a dual-core Intel Atom Clover Trail+ processor. Unfortunately the benchmark did not indicate if the S4 used Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chipset or a variant bearing Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU.

    GSM Arena, which carried out the test, said that the Lenovo K900 reveals that the smartphone is a touch ahead of Samsung Galaxy S4 and the K900 is one of the fastest smartphone in the current market.

    The Galaxy S4 was the fastest Android phone yet, so Intel knocking it off the top spot would be significant.

    Intel as it is using a dual-core CPU design to combat ARM's quad-core designs.

    The dual-core Intel Atom CPU inside the IdeaPhone K900 is clocked at 2 GHz.

    • The K900 is a phablet with a huge battery. So I'd take this comparison with a pinch of salt.

      • I would take all benchmark numbers with a BUCKET of salt. It is not hard to change the operating behavior when the CPU detects that it is running a benchmark. google Antutu cheating and see how easy it is. Turning off networks and other processes makes the benchmark run faster.

        Does the HUGE battery make the K900 run faster? The huge battery is used to power the huge screen. Large form factor is for a larger screen.

        What I think is most valuable is the AnandTech articles that show performance versus power consumption graphs. Those show how much current is being drawn over the time span of a benchmark. You can see visually how much current is being consumed and how long the benchmarks take. The curves show that Atom idle is, today, equal or better to that of ARM solutions.

        The 2008 Atom design did very nice.

    • I dont think anyone thinks that. I just don't think this is gonna be cake walk......what ever that is.
