Video: HTC One S keeps its cool during Qualcomm’s butter benchmark

Today’s high-end smartphones are powered by some incredibly powerful processors which delivery amazing frame rates for 3D gaming, 1080p video recording and intensive computing which allow users to keep up with Twitter, Instagram and all those Facebook updates.

We’ve already seen enough benchmarks to know that the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor used in the HTC One S and HTC One X is currently one of the best processors on the market, but Qualcomm wanted to show off the processor’s thermal efficiency compared to its competitors. You could easily see which devices run hotter by using a thermal imaging camera, but Qualcomm though it would be a bit more interesting to see which device was fastest at melting a stick of butter.

“Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 is the coolest kid on the block – and we mean it literally.”

[quote]The more demanding these tasks, the harder the powerful processor works. That can result in excessive heat, which can result in lower performance and reliability issues. Over time, excessive heat can also be damaging to components, especially the battery. The hotter a device gets, the more it degrades battery capacity. To combat this, Snapdragon S4 processors are specially designed to keep their cool. Watch this video to see a Snapdragon thermal comparison and our new Butter Benchmark.[/quote]
