Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

HTC ONE X has the Quad-core 1.5 GHz and HTC ONE XL had Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait. Though the clock speed of each the smartph1s is same however there's plenty of distinction between the GPU and therefore the chipset version in these 2 smartph1s. HTC ONE X has Nvidia Tegra three chipset whereas the chipset of HTC ONE XL is Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon. Snapdragon chipsets are the experienced chipsets whereas Nvida chipsets are comparatively new. The GPU of HTC ONE X is ULP GeForce whereas the GPU of HTC ONE XL is Adreno 225. each are powered by fantastic processors to enable users to form the foremost of them. The HTC ONE XL is powered by a twin core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor whereas the 1 X options a strong Quad Core 1.5 GHz Tegra three processor.

this offers the 1 X a small advantage over the XL and will be enough to swing the selection of the techies' out there. With an oversized bit show stretching from the highest to bottom, the look of each the 1 X and therefore the 1 XL are identical. each ph1s feature an oversized 4.7 in. bit screen that provides smartph1 enthusiasts an incredible user expertise. they are each quite sleek while not being too bulky and have that quality HTC complete feel that has been ever gift in HTC for the previous few years. If it's quality you obtain, the 1 Series won't allow you to d1.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

If i'm not wrong then The NVIDIA Tegra three processor offers four cores and a fifth “battery saver” companion core which will be used for facet tasks that don't need quad-core power. NVIDIA explained that the four ARM Cortex A9 cores in Tegra three also are capable of cutting down their clock speed automatically so as to fulfill the strain of applications. If, for instance, you’re taking part in a resource-intensive game, Tegra three can power all four cores to one.5GHz and provides you all you wish. however if you’re simply browsing the net, the cores might scale all the way down to 750MHz every for a lot of economical battery life. By operating every core at a lower frequency, every of those cores also can be run at a lower voltage level. Semiconductor physics dictate that the ability consumption of a core is proportional to the frequency and therefore the sq. of the operating voltage. owing to this sq. law relationship, even alittle reduction in voltage would end in a bigger reduction in power consumption. thus the full power consumption of a quad core CPU to method constant workload would be below that of a twin core CPU. Qualcomm’s S4 processor, on the opposite hand, is powered by 2 a lot of powerful Cortex A15-class “Krait” cores. Those cores, very like NVIDIA’s, are capable of scaling the processor clock speed up or all the way down to meet the wants of the applications that cash in of them. Qualcomm calls this tech “power good.” The Krait processor is a lot of energy economical generally than the A9, which implies it ought to provide a lot of power while not consuming the maximum amount energy.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

AnTuTu v2.7.3 is able of testing the performance of multiple cores. we tend to selected this take a look at as a result of it permits us to ascertain how 2 cores compete against 4 cores. Additionally, it shows how 2D/3D and I/O capabilities of every processor perform. However, the 2D/3D tests are resolution dependent that the Snapdragon S4 has an higher hand as a result of it's fewer pixels to render on the One S’s show. SmartBench 2012 starts by calculating pi and then running a series of graphics-based tests, string tests and 3D renders. It’s a customary take a look at that’s frequently used to benchmark phones. AndeEMark is very vital as a result of it absolutely was engineered by the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium.

AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm and lots of others are a part of the consortium, therefore this is often a take a look at that’s been standardized and approved by a bunch of chipmakers and trade insiders. AndeEMark is able of take a test multicore and multithreading capabilities of a given processor and might conjointly test the Java potency of the CPU. tegra 3. Higher scores are higher within the chart and NVIDIA’s Tegra three was the clear winner in AndeMark Native, SmartBench 2012 and AnTuTu v2.7.3. It posted higher scores for each take a look at, though the benchmarks for SmartBench 2012 were comparatively close

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

It’s not correct to check the S4 against the Tegra 3 in an exceedingly game that was specifically designed for the Tegra 3. therefore during this take a look at, I merely compared the real-world gaming expertise of Shadowgun on each the HTC One S and therefore the One X to ascertain if there have been any noticeable variations. Overall the sport acted and looked nearly constant on each phones, though the graphics were admittedly somewhat a lot of crisp on the One X just because it's a better resolution show. What will this tell us? That the S4 will hold its own to the One X when it involves games that are designed to run across multiple processors. As you’ll note within the screenshots below, there are comparatively few variations between the 2 games. Tegra three offers four processing cores (plus a fifth battery saver core), that permits applications to upload onto a bigger variety of processors. which means you’re splitting the ability across four cores rather than simply 2, that theoretically can facilitate save battery life. NVIDIA is functioning closely with developers to form special Tegra Zone games. which means you not solely have access to the initial games within the Google Play store however conjointly the improved versions from NVIDIA. unimaginable multitasking performance in globe tests. Support for real-time physics and dynamic lighting in games.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

NVIDIA has not however announced partnerships with U.S. carriers to supply 4G LTE devices with Tegra 3 within the U.S., however that's possible to vary down the road. which means Qualcomm, with its Snapdragon S4 processor, has the higher hand when it involves providing 4G LTE chips. Qualcomm is that the largest provider of 4G LTE radios within the U.S. To its credit, NVIDIA already has solutions for 4G LTE support in Japan and therefore the company has partnerships to supply 4G LTE solutions elsewhere, too. Currently solely out there within the One X, LG’s upcoming Optimus 4X HD and therefore the ASUS Transformer Prime pill. Tianyu, ZTE and Fujitsu have conjointly announced Tegra three powered devices though we tend to don’t suspect we’ll see them within the us. because the Snapdragon S4 is concern wonderful gaming performance in real-world tests, and the flexibility to play hit games like Order & Chaos from Gameloft. Qualcomm adds support for 4G LTE networks, which implies we’ll see these devices within the us before Tegra three smartphones. The HTC One X on AT&Tand therefore the EVO 4G LTE on Sprint are simply 2 examples, though we’ll surely see a lot of. Utilizes Cortex A15-class Krait processors rather than last-gen A9 chips. higher browser performance score in Moonbat.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

Well I issue the NVIDIA’s Tegra three processor wins this comparison as a result of it not solely performed higher in an exceedingly larger variety of tests, however conjointly as a result of the corporate includes a developer community making wonderful games that are specifically designed for its devices. No different chipmaker is doing this straight away. whereas Tegra three employs older ARM Cortex A9 processors, it will therefore in an exceedingly power economical approach. Snapdragon S4 faster when it involves internet performance, that is big in day-to-day use.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

These 2 processors are each wonderful elements. However, everybody has their own "specialty". Thus, the Tegra three seems higher for advanced applications since it's higher multi-tasking whereas S4 Krait looks typically faster. Graphic facet, the S4 supported the Adreno 225 GPU looks to possess a head begin on the Tegra three. This advance are going to be a lot of enhanced than the S4 can then be provided with the Adreno 3xx ...Simply place the S4 Qualcomm dominates in terms of computation whereas the Tegra three dominates for all that's multi-tasking.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

NVIDIA Tegra 3 is a 4 +1 system, which offers four core Cortex A9 engraved in 40 nm and a core companion, smaller and is activated only for small tasks, which reduces the energy consumed by the system on-chip. The main cores are clocked usually at 1.3 or 1.5 GHz, while the core companion is 500 MHz. Tegra 3 is also equipped with a ULP GeForce graphics processor with 12 cores. The architecture of ARM Cortex A9 architecture is already found in most SoC phones and high-end tablets currently on the market, such as IT OMAP4, the A5 Tegra and Apple 2 (iPhone 4S, Galaxy Nexus, etc.). The Tegra 3 is the first SoC for smart phones to offer a quad-core processor. The presence of four cores should be advantageous in some games and software specifically designed to take advantage of multiple cores for multitasking and, since Android Ice Cream Sandwich can take advantage of these multiple cores. That said, it is worth remembering that many more games software and use only one core . If a double core is still interesting in this case compared to a single core , the advantage of a quad-core processor compared to a double core is much more limited in If an application that is only task at a time. Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 uses an architecture Krait engraved in 28 nm and completely different from Tegra 3. If 3 is a Tegra processor of the present generation (but quad-core), S4 Snapdragon processor is definitely the next generation. Snapdragon S4 will be available on several different integrated systems, but for now, only a few similar enough (for graphic processor and the core at least) are used in mobile and tablet announced at MWC, including the MSM8960 and MSM8260 . Qualcomm had to turn a few corners to get to quickly deliver Snapdragon S4.

Therefore, these first integrated systems, even if they are in many ways of next generation systems, also offer some features of the previous generation. Notably, these offer only a dual core (it was not until the end of the year for the first quad-core S4) and, especially, an Adreno 225 graphics core of last generation.

Re: Does Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is better than NVIDIA Tegra 3

In browsing and gaming the Tegra three vastly outperforms the S4, why will a dual-core chip that's effectively running at a comparatively similar clock speed be most faster in some benchmarks? the solution is kind of straightforward truly. Browsing and gaming are currently the sole things where the software is optimized for over a dual-core chip, therefore those further cores are merely reaching to waste in most belongings you do. the opposite a part of the equation is that the Snapdragon S4 could be a newer generation chip, therefore its design is a lot of advanced for running dual-core optimized tasks.
