ASUS has just released their latest Padfone, the 5 inch Infinity which is running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad Core processor. We put it through the paces and run a whole slew of benchmarks. We try to heat up this smartphone with Quadrant, Vellanmo, NenaMark2, Geekbench, GLBenchmark 2.5.1 and AnTuTu.
Let’s get right into it with how the ASUS Padfone Infinity stacked up, let’s start off with Quadrant which measures the performance of the device’s CPU, I/O, memory throughput, and 2D / 3D graphics.
If you want more than taking a look at slides, we’ve got a video here that shows you how the Padfone Infinity performed on the benchmarks.
Up next is AnTutu which is a full system test that analyzes CPU and memory performance, GPU rendering, and storage speed. With a score of 24543 you can see it’s neck and neck with the yet to be released Galaxy S4 a difference of 350 won’t be detectable in real world usage, but in the benchmarking arena it’s obviously a big deal 😉 .
Geekbench provides a comprehensive set of tests that measure processor and memory performance.
NenaMark2 is looks at OpenGL 2.0, as well as graphic-intensive operations to really push the new processors to their limits. It uses five times as much geometry of NenaMark1, as well as tougher shaders and more HD content; it also deploys dynamic lighting, bump mapping, and cube map reflections.
Next up is GL Benchmark 2.5.1 which is an older benchmark which it can be argued isn’t very relevant because it doesn’t represent modern games. But since there isn’t a benchmark available that offers in-game cross-platform benchmarks, we’ll take a look at what the Padfone scores on this one.
One thing that I have to point out is that I was given this review unit from ASUS and it is a preproduction version, the final versions will be released in about a week and a half, so this is to give those who can’t wait some ball park numbers to play with.
