The newly-announced HTC One and LG Optimus G Pro will both be powered by one of Qualcomm’s latest chips, the Snapdragon 600. The 800 may be the new Snapdragon to watch out for, but that doesn’t mean the 600 is any sort of slouch. With quad-core Krait 300 designs and Adreno 320 GPUs, we’ve had high expectations for the performance of phones built around these chips. Now that testers have had the opportunity to get their hands on the HTC One, we have some confirmed benchmarks to look at, and they’re pretty darn formidable.
The HTC One gives Sunspider 0.9.1 results of 1294.1 ms +/- 10.2% for the stock Android Browser and 1219.8 ms +/- 7.2% for the latest Chrome beta. With Sunspider, lower is better, and for comparison the Nexus 10 – one of the top Android performers – only managed a 1384.1 with its stock browser.
CF-Bench gave figures of (26728, 20119, 22762). Those easily beat the Galaxy S III’s (22379, 6376, 12777). Quadrant tests return a score of 12026 broken-down as CPU: 35114, Mem: 10821, I/O 10908, 2D: 1006, and 3D: 2253. That’s seriously high when compared to the Nexus 10′s Quadrant score of 4193, the Nexus 4′s 4870, and even the Droid DNA’s 8142.
Finally, Smartbench 2012 gives figures of 6979 Productivity and 2849 Games. Again comparing to the Droid DNA, that model only had 4764 Productivity and 5478 Games.
We know, benchmarks aren’t the end-all-be-all way to compare phone performance, but based on all these results, it should be clear that the HTC One, and the Qualcomm 600 inside it, are some serious powerhouse machines.
