I for one don´t believe in benchmarks and think that the user is the only one who can declare himself satisfied or not with the performance of the handset. Still, when I look at the scores the Tagra 4 chip from Nvidia got, I can´t help wondering what did they manage to fit in there to make it so fast.


Nvidia´s Tegra 4 chip was announced at the end of last year and according to the manufacturer it ascertained performance way above anything else on the market. Showing results from a Tegra 4 device on stage, the chip managed to out-run even Apple´s newest iPad 4th gen, in terms of graphics and processing power. With the beginning of the so long expected MWC 2013, we get a chance to analise in detail some of the first benchmark results obtained by a Tegra 4 chip, running on a tablet device.


How fast is the Tegra 4 compared to the competition. Well, at the moment there is no competition, though we haven´t seen the likes of Qualcomm´s Snapdragon 800 put to work. Till that happens the Tegra 4 will rule as the fastest chip you can get. Then we have the Snapdragon 600 in the HTC One that comes close, though not close enough. The  quad-core Cortex-A15 processor with a 72-core GPU managed to score over 36,000 points in AnTuTu, 16,000 in Quadrant 2.0 and GLBenchmark’s Egypt offscreen test at 1080p averaged 57 frames per second.
