Although it would be unjust to compare the just launched Sony Xperia Z Ultra with the older established devices, the folks of performed a first benchmark on Sony’s fresh device. They tested Quadrant on it and what came out is the experience below.

The Snapdragon 800 CPU inside makes it achieve almost 13k points, or better said 12.684 points, as shown here. This is a score that’s pretty close to the one of the Galaxy S4 and HTC One, both packing Snapdragon 600 processors. The difference is minimal and it may be due to the fact that the software is not finalized and sometimes Quadrant messes up things.

Up until now the highest performers in Quadrant and AnTuTu have been the likes of Tegra 4 and Inte’s dual core Atom, used on the Lenovo K900. The Exynos 5 Octa has also been performing quite nicely. The full potential of Snapdragon 800 hasn’t yet been unleashed, so we’re expecting much better. By the way, it appears that the Xperia Z Ultra will cost a bit over 700 euros and it has already reached the FCC, as mentioned here, so expect a fast launch.
