Lenovo K900 with Dual Core Intel Atom Z2580 CPU Antutu Benchmark Test Score Beats That of Samsung Galaxy S4

Based on this image posted on Lenovo Mobile Philippines' official Facebook page, its clear that Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 - the company's current flagship handset - slays the recently released Samsung Galaxy S4 when it comes to Antutu Benchmark Test score.

As earlier explained on TechPinas, AnTuTu Benchmark is an application for Android, which can run a full test on smartphones and tablets' CPU Integer Performance, CPU Floating Point Performance, Memory Performance, 2D and 3D Graphics Performance, Database I/O Performance and SD Card Reading and Writing Speed, and promises to give an accurate analysis of the overall capabilities of an Android device's innards.

Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 got a score of 28,050 giving it a very slight advantage over SGS4, whose score wasn't shown. Likewise, it wasn't specified whether the Samsung Galaxy S4 included in this test was running on the 1.6 GHz Octa-Core Exynos 5 Octa 5410 chipset or the Quad Core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor. Nonetheless, we know that SamMobile had run Antutu Benchmark test on GT-i9500 (Octa) and the handset got a score of 28,018 while GSMArena had performed the same test on GT-i9505 (Quad) and it scored 23,607.

Looking at the comparative chart, what I find interesting is that K900 got its lead particularly because of its CPU Integer Performance represented by the royal blue bar. Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 runs on a Dual Core 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2580, which - according to Intel - delivers performance built on the company's leading 32-nanometer process technology and features Intel Hyper-Threading Technology that supports four simultaneous application threads for smooth and seamless multitasking and responsive Web browsing. Z2580 is optimized for the Google Android operating system as it is enhanced using Dalvik VM runtime optimization, x86 trace-based JIT, Native Code Generation, JavaScript, and HTML5 code execution. Given that this dual-core chip was able to match if not outperform current quad-core and octa-core mobile processors, I hope consumers - especially the not so geeky ones - would start questioning the notion that more number of cores immediately equates to greater performance.

Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 is the smartphone Kobe Bryant used in that Walang Iwanan TVC by Lenovo Mobile Philippines.

Aside from its powerhouse processor running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 likewise comes with other technical specifications worthy of a 2013 Android flagship release. These include a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD display with 401 ppi pixel density protected by scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 2 touchscreen, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB internal storage expandable via microSD card slot, 13 MegaPixel main camera with LED flash, 2 MP front-facing camera, 1080p 30fps video recorder, and a 2,500 mAh battery pack.

As of writing, Lenovo Mobile Philippines hasn't disclosed the official pricing details of Lenovo IdeaPhone K900 but they did inform the media during the handset's formal announcement last month that it will hit store shelves either in June or July this year. Here's to hoping it won't cost an arm and a leg when it gets here.
