Benchmark tests for Galaxy S III quad-core showcase its raw power

Quad-cor(e) blimey!

Product: Samsung Galaxy S III | Manufacturer: Samsung
 
Samsung Galaxy S III Android, thumbnail 1
The boffins over at Android Community wasted no time running benchmarks on the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S III and the results are nothing short of impressive.

The tests put the Galaxy S III's Exynos 1.4GHz processor through its paces using Quadrant Advanced. The benchmark scores clocked in at an average of 5642 (on one occasion surpassing 5700).

These results leave much of the current Android competition well behind, as the HTC One X scored 4900 for the dual-core and 4800 for the Tegra 3 (quad-core).

While more testing is required to see what the Galaxy S III is fully capable of, these initial results are quite promising for those hoping for a Samsung powerhouse.

@ aros - that's what's got me confused about the amount of power going into smartphones these days. Beyond people doing complex microsimulations or high-level mathematical modelling on the go (a very niche market ;)), it'd likely be aimed at gaming. And with the restrictions of touch-only controls, you're either paying through the nose for a second-class experience (like playing $400,000 for a car that looks like a Ferrari but handles like a 1970s Morris) or for some of the prettiest turn-based gaming you can find on the go!

Of course, there are Supercars through the ages that are all looks and no handling, and there are plenty of mobile gamers that won't go near traditional handheld or stationary gaming platforms (for emotional rathers than rational reasons), so there is generally a market for these things ;). And if there's people that want it, and they want to give Samsung (or Apple or HTC, or whoever) money for it, then everyone's happy :) (you don't need to be rational to be happy ;)).

Without buttons to make use of the power via emulation is there that much point?
