Medfield-Powered Lenovo K800 Benchmark Scores Show Promise

Intel’s Medfield chipset promises to bring performance and improved power consumption to Ice Cream Sandwich-powered devices. Launch partner Lenovo is promising to release its 1.6GHz Atom Z2460-powered K800 smartphone in China in two months. Until then, we won’t really know if Medfield will live up to its potential, but Engadget managed to score some early benchmarks for a prototype K800 running Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread.

How close these benchmarks are to the final version has yet to be seen, so take these numbers for what they are. The graphics performance was lacking a bit, but the overall scores were similar to those of the Samsung Galaxy Note, which runs a 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor. Not too shabby. Better yet, the K800 performed very well in the Javascript test, beating the Galaxy Note as well as the HTC One X and One S.

Now we just have to see how well the battery holds up. Check out the full benchmarks after the break.
