The HTC One X and Samsung GSIII go head to head in Vellamo 2.0 benchmark tests
Qualcomm, HTC’s primary chip manufacturer for quite some time has updated their benchmarking tool called Vellamo to version 2.0 and with the update comes the introduction of two new benchmark chapters. Let’s see how the HTC One X stacks up against the Samsung Galaxy S III.
- The Metal Chapter: This measures the CPU subsystem performance of mobile processors by testing CPU performance, memory bandwidth performance, and memory branching speeds.
The team at Engadget did not waste any time comparing multiple versions of the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III (US and global models) using Vellamo 2.o. The US versions of the One X and GSIII have the same Qualcomm processor and the global One X has an NVIDIA processor while the global GSIII sports an EXYNOS chip. Also worth a note is the GSIII has an additional gig of RAM totalling 2 GB’s.
Bare in mind this is an app made by Qualcomm so results from other processor could be a little off considering the benchmarks have been optimized on Qualcomm’s platform. The tests in the metal chapter rated the US HTC One X (587) higher than the other phones beating the US GSIII (576) by 11 points. The US GSIII did however come out on top when it came to the Chapter on HTML5 with a score of 1605 and the global One X in second at 1591.
I did my own tests using my HTC One S and my results were a little higher than Engadgets and I also noticed that uploaded scores were a bit higher on the One X and GSIII for other users, but still the same as far as rankings go. Check out the Metal Chapter results for all three US phones below (HTC One X, my HTC One S, Samsung GSIII). The tests are pretty close and definitely point out just how well the HTC One X compares the Samsung Galaxy S III, for those who had any doubts!
