Benchmarks comparing desktop CPUs to mobile CPUs?

5 posts in this topic

I think it could be interesting to see what desktop CPU the, for example, Galaxy S4 CPU, performs similarly to.

I'm sure there is testing software that runs on both platforms and that displays comparable results. Maybe like HTML benchmarking software?

You know they are entire different architectures, right? Comparing them would be pointless.

But HTML rendering speed is 100% comparable, as is CPU-rendered graphics (total frames).

Basically, there are comparable ways to test the different platforms and architectures.

i believe they (ARM CPU's, not mobile ones, that's a different subject) are comparable to low to mid performance Celerons; having said that that architecture is growing very fast and i hope we can see very soon a full blown CPU that is very low power for mobile and when docked it can consume more power to be work horse. That way we just need it a single device that had the mobility of a mobile phone, the versability of a tablet and the massive power of a game station.

 

oh and it must run Crysis! (the end of all benchs).

I think it's important to note: different architectures are optimized for different things. And when we talk about optimizations here, they are shortcuts and cached operations which result in unfair advantages when compared 1:1, that could impede a truly conclusive test result.

 

I don't want to get too deep at testing practices and steer away from doing your own research, there are ways to force an optimized architecture to ignore optimizations.

 

You're in luck, There have been tests conducted to compare Mobile CPU vs Desktop ones; such as x86 vs ARM (such as that of Nvidia, Samsung and Qualcomm).  I won't attempt to summarize it here, because i'm not sure the verdict is out or at least it's not good enough for me, but it's a start.

 

Start by searching for x86 vs Arm benchmarks.
