Just saw this and results are pretty amazing.
YouTube - Droid X benchmark tests
No surprises here. The GPU in the current Droid already runs circles around the Adreno in the Snapdragon SOC, and the GPU in the X is 80% faster than the Droid's.
The Linpack scores are just where I'd expect the 1GHz OMAP to be (my Droid got around 8.5MFLOPs as well on 2.1 @ 1GHz)
Droid X on Froyo is going to rip.
That's amazing! I didn't exactly know how much faster the Droid X was, but after seeing this... WOW. I can't wait to root this bad boy and put 2.2 on it! It will be indisputably the fastest Android phone to date.
Droid X really blew the EVO out in every test. I feel a little embarrassed for them that the EVO was beat so easily. I guess it's just another reason to get the X.
It also reaches 60FPS WITHOUT a hack.
Froyo will make the X even more of a beast!
For real ckochinsky! It's going to wipe the floor with basically every other smartphone. I can't wait to give back my Evo in favor of the Droid X.
"Everything you can do I can do better..."
HEHE my initial assesment from 2 weeks ago was right on the money.
The X just blew everything away.
now where are all the evo fans who were TRYING to prove me wrong?
I like my evo but i'm not goona prove you wrong! great phone but it's going back for this XD!
hmmm they are all wonderful phones.
that n1 is looking mighty sexy dressed in froyo..........
Post this on the EVO forum and you will get a lot of hate. lol
From this video, anyone else get the impression that the EVO is umm... a little... slow?
I think a lot of people who bought or were waiting for the evo will be moving over to the DX...can only try to justify and rationalize for so long...and with the quality issues that the evo is having, it's a no-brainer in my eyes.
Hopefully the Droid X will not have too many quality issues. I'm expecting there to be some since all phones have to have some... even the iPhone 4 wasn't immune at all as everyone knows by now.
The reviewers have been saying that it feels solid and not cheap at all and commend Motorola for making a well built phone.
hehe, i have no interest in the evo.
you will never see me there. Everything I want is ALL right here.
the inc and iphone too.
moto is onto something here: High performance, Quality build, Killer software all on the number 1 network
Also they will hopefully not be in short supply.
I think all early adopters are fully willing to forgive having to take one back to get one that is without issue. But I think with the evo, it's gotten to a point where people are almost afraid to exchange out of fear of ending up with one with even more issues. When I returned mine, I fully intended to get another one from a later batch but after seeing so many people on their 3rd evo and still having problems I decided I didn't want the headache.
Most people who browse these forums want the latest goodies, but also understand that there's always going to be something newer on the horizon. It's just nature of the beast. What most of us don't want is to wonder whether we've got the latest version of the same phone...which is where I think the evo is at right now...
To me, I look at the droid line of phones as motorola's flagship whereas the evo is just another phone in htc's quest to churn out as many different models of phones as possible. So hopefully, the quality control/design will reflect this relative importance, which I think it will. ....can't get much worse than what is happening with the evo.
hmmm, i know we are talking about the evo...but you guys can throw at least the inc and eris into that picture as well. MAtter of fact i know the HD2 has issues as well.
All four have been suspect in terms of Q.C. lately.
I think HTC doesn't have quite the high standards of manufacturing since they are popping new phones out every few months they may feel people will just move onto the new thing and leave the old ones behind. I think this is why Motorola is doing so well they limit the number of phones they produce to about 1 a year or so. They focus more on making quality phones that will last.

however, i do agree that htc is building crap right now.
Yeah well i mean up to now they have been doing about a phone a year
This is the one thing that makes me wish I waited a couple more weeks and gotten the X instead of Evo. The Evo is still a great phone but unfortunately the proc/SoC it uses is just so old (Toshiba came out with the TG01 like 3 years ago using it) and it can't keep up with the newer OMAP's. I'm oh so tempted to grab the X but can't justify the cost and switch for just this, even though its impressive. I'm sure if that Evo had a stock build of 2.1 W/O Sense it would have a slightly higher score then it currently does and with 2.2 it should be right around the N1's scores. Still won't beat the X on 2.2 by a long shot but oh well this is what happens when you want to have the newest device.....I can always live vicariously through you Fabo.
Don't worry, at this rate you can replace the word "Evo" with "Droid X" in a couple of months. With a possible 2ghz processor phone on the horizon, or if the Droid Pro shapes up nicely, then the bar will continue to be raised rapidly..
Then give back your X when the next thing comes out... Spit and repeat.
The Droid X will be the best phone for a while on the Verizon network. I wish there was some kind of leasing option or something for phones. I find myself switching every few months to get the latest one on Verizon. lol
