    That is correct.

    The Snapdragon S3 is Scorpion cpu (uses the ARMv7 instruction set with extensions but is not an A8 or A7) and its embedded GPU is the Adreno 220. The SGS2 has an Exynos processor.

    My Evo 3D with an S3 at 1.5 GHz benchmarks very comparably to the stock SGS2 at 1.2 GHz (with reasonably small pluses and minuses evening the trade).

    A 1.5 GHz Exynos or OMAP(*) would exceed either.


    (* footnote - this would depend on the OMAP generation, but for purposes of our expectations and your question, the answer is yes.)

    its omap not exynos, no one claiming exynos has a credible source.

    Seems like it will be omap like said in some of the leaks and not exynos.

    Take a look at which of these phones comes in as LTE+GSM+CDMA...and the processor.

    The 4212 announcement from Samsung makes it look like it is more than just a die shrink, as their performance numbers scale faster than the jump from 1.2 or 1.4 to 1.5 and we see the addition of new features such as HDMI 1.4 and probably a newer GPU. It wouldn't be hard for them to add support for an MDM9600/9615 at that point, or even their own within the SoC...

    Does this make it less game changing?

    I think the proper phrase is "you complete me" since you and I need to correct the very minor errors we each make.

    Snapdragon uses the Scorpion CPU, as you stated, which uses the ARMv7 instruction set. Cortex A8 also uses ARMv7 instruction set. So does Cortex A9. While the instruction sets are the same (FYI, ARM11 used ARMv6), the MPCore is different.

    I'll go into more detail in a separate thread later this week. Car is packed and I'm about to roll out to Little Rock for the next 5 weeks.

    Doing some searching on accessories and came across this:

    Nexus Prime Accessories - Discount Prices on Nexus Prime Accessories


    I would be sort of disappointed if this was true.

    "The Nexus Prime is going to be identical to the Samsung Galaxy S II that has already been released overseas. Every major cell phone carrier will start carrying the Samsung Galaxy S II, but they will all have a different name for the smart phone."

    Just got back from church myself. No Ravens football this week (bye week) so the 1st thing I do when I get home is check this thread...

    Disagrees with the news blurb on the top of the page about the Nexus Prime.

    The rest of the specs there say 800x480 and Android 2.3.3 - so I wouldn't sweat it, srsly.

    That site appears to be just "placeholding". There are no cases and every available accessory is standard micro usb, micro sd cards, etc. (that is pretty standard and easy to claim it is for the prime). I'd say they don't know squat ;)

    If you want choices and flavors in life - you're Android. If you want conformity and to be told what to do - you're Apple.

    Isn't everything a rumor right now? Unless I'm mistaken, the leaks that claim it has the OMAP aren't any more credible than the ones that claim it has the Exynos. If I've missed something credible, then I'm wrong, but I don't think we've seen anything solid and credible, other than rumor, backing either processor.

    here's a quote i saw from somebody who knows what they're talking about..


    i'd say the difference being, the omap rumor has been reported on since june over and over again. the exynos nonsense is only something recently

    Agreed. Now if he said "i'm holding one in my hand right now and it's OMAP", it might change the game a little b/c he is a source many respect. But that's not what happened and i think the reason for that is the usual info sources aren't sure themselves this time. They poured a big old can of stop leak on this one.

    So it sounds like my best bet is to get a 4s and put ics on it. Hahaha. Not that I could ever do that. Anyway, well, we will see what they bring to the table. I'm starting to not like the phrase game changer. Or, how easily tossed around it is. Although, it could happen, I guess. We will see Tuesday, or the 27th, or whenever...

    well, if your only worry is gpu performance, yes. :p the 4460 is going to be plenty fast. don't forget the first leak had ics running fine on the nexus s ;)

    Game changer is the new paradigm shift, c'est tout.

    Oh, no worries. I've no plans to jump ship, and considering this will be my first dual core, Im sure I will be pleasantly impressed. I was really just hoping for something big for android. Don't get me wrong, ics is looking so, so sexy, but for once I would like something to live up to its hype. Maybe that's just not possible in the age of the hypebeast, though.

    Wait. Paradigm shift like the atrocitious fighting platform they recently puked up for final fantasy? :D

    Nothing personal - that's just a bold statement, referencing a phone not out yet vs. a processor that isn't in anyone's hands on a phone yet.

    Think that Apple's policy of increasing OS size (features) while keeping clock rates low to increase battery life might have some bearing on that?

    Or the frame update difference between about a megapixel per frame (1280x720=921,600) vs about 2/3 of that (960x640=614,400)?

    I think it's way too soon for anyone who knows what they're talking about to make that claim.

    That said, maybe I'm wrong, I often am. ;)

    So this the first thread I have ever been addicted to. As you can tell from my whopping 2 posts I'm not an avid forum guy but I needed to say the chip stuff is cracking me up. I'm using an OG Droid running CM7 that has to be reset 4 times a day so it thinks it has a battery charge, the battery cover falls off every other time I take it out of my pocket, and when I get a call "60 percent of the time it works every time".

    I would probably be happy with a miniature hamster on a wheel powering this thing. But I appreciate the big brains and passion for android. :D
