Who’s ready for some nice benchmarks? GSM Arena reports it came across some rather interesting benchmarks for the upcoming Qualcomm MSM8960 SoC. Coupled with an Andreno 225 GPU and running on an unidentified device at a resolution of 1024 x 600, the benchmark showed an impressive 54.90 NenaMark 2 benchmark score. To compare it with a more familiar and popular device, GSM Arena ran a test on a Samsung Galaxy S II device, which of course features a Mali-400 GPU at 800 x 480 resolution, the NenaMark 2 benchmark score was a ‘mere’ 46.2. While the reference unit is operated by Ice Cream Sandwich, it is still impressive how it dominated the Galaxy S II in terms of raw performance. Sort of makes you excited for Qualcomm’s new jewel, doesn’t it? This will be especially true when we see more and more apps optimized for the chip.
