Qualcomm’s latest MDP devices, which means the tablet and phone that rely on the latest gen Snapdragon 800 SoC were up for testing this week. The idea was to benchmark them ahead of the release of devices based on them and obviously the scores were huge.


The tablet unit of the duo packs a 11.6 inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32 GB of built in flash storage, a microSD card slot and USB 3.0 support. There’s also a 12 megapixel camera with autofocus at the back and a front 2 megapixel fixed focus unit. The device measures 11.7 mm in chassis thickness and it’s powered by a 3400 mAh Li-Ion battery.


LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and NFC are all here, as well as a couple of sensors, including ones for pressure and humidity. If you were impressed by the results of the Snapdragon 600 and its 12k points in Quadrant on the HTC One, well this S800 MDP tablet release hits an amazing 20k score, beating the Exynos 5 Octa results by 7.000 points.


In Vellamo the same tablet hits 2997 points, while most models nowadays are barely close to 2000. In AnTuTu the gap is not that big, with 35k points, compared to the 28k of the Exynos 5 Octa and the Snapdragon S4 Pro’s 13k points. Probably the most relevant result is the 13,738 points scored in 3DMark, totally beating the max scores you can see listed right now (11k or so).

So, who’s drooling for a Snapdragon 800 device?
