Last week we reported on the mother of all leaks: the Samsung Galaxy S3 turned up in a video hands-on. While the verdict on how ‘final’ that model was is still up for debate, one thing’s for sure: the spec inside is going to be pretty special. Now a benchmark test of the Galaxy S3’s processor has also materialised online. What does it beat? Just about everything.
Phone Arena has been handed what seems to be a leaked benchmark test of the Exynos 4412 processor, which is said to be the CPU that’ll drive the Galaxy S3. The chipset is a quad-core, 1.4GHz monster with an ARM Mali-400 GPU. Someone hands you a screen of the chip being tested – what are you gonna do? Obviously, you’re gonna stack it up against the competition.
The Exynos processor smashed just about everything going. It beat Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4, NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 and the iPhone 4S’ A5 processor. But it also topped the quad-core PowerVR graphics engine found in the new iPad. Which is pretty amazing considering it’s just a phone.
While you can take this – and all leaked info – with a pinch of salt until Samsung’s announcement event on May 3rd, if the Galaxy S3 does end up with the Exynos 4412 processor beating away inside it then the numbers certainly seem to stack up in its favour. Long story short? The Galaxy S3 is going to be insanely powerful.
