    They tell me this will change again when the Droid X and Samsung Galaxy get 2.2 - I wouldn't know.

    Until then, here's our moment in the sun.

    Made this using the Quadrant benchmark, free from the Market, using a the stock rooted 2.2 rom and the netarchy-toastmod 3.7.6c kernel with the 30 fps cap lifted. No over-clocking, no hair-on-fire super tweaks, no killing every process to tweak the benchmark - just downloaded and run, the number on the bar says 1165.


    The Nexus One 2.2 at the top uses the exact same processor (aside from the radio-control circuit) as our EVO. I attribute its higher score to the fact that it's sleeker and not running Sense. I happen to like Sense so I don't care.

    That's a little odd because I've gotten over 1300 with the leaked 2.2 from HTC. I figured our scores would be much higher with the FPS lifted.

    I wonder what's biased mine? No telling what I have running - I've got some 60+ user apps added on to stock.

    Over 1300 though? Cool!

    Guess if I get time, I'll restore from backup and see what's different.

    PS - I just read that the AAC+ codecs were broken in 2.2 and one of the kernel mods noted for the google kernel to fix that degraded the Quadrant scores.

    No idea if that made its way into this kernel, though.

    I personally like sense also, but am going to try sense free once...just so I know :)

    I didn't use quadrant, but according to linpack my phone went from a 1965 cray to a 1969 cray in 6 weeks. Gotta love progress.

    :lma0: Yeah, I know, right? And where's the bench? :more lma0:

    In other news - the Droid X forum has a 3 page thread with everyone there shooting it out with Quadrant. I noticed at least one report of exceeding 1300.

    Now. I am patiently waiting for then to get 2.2 and see if they get the near doubling again in capability - as the original benchmarking brou ha ha suggested - or if they'll get just some incremental improvement per my claim that there were some shenanigans as to how they were getting 2.2 performance out of a supposedly all 2.1 phone.

    I'm especially interested in that. :D

    I also noted that the Quadrant reported the Snapdragon had frame buffering where the OMAP3 did not.

    I will be more than happy to eat crow if I was wrong - but - until then, I'm going to keep my eye them.

    That looks like this:

    With the old 2.2 ROM from flipz (I think) before the official came out I was able to get 1512-1536 while overclocked and FPS uncapped. It was a AOSP rom though, no sense.

    I get 823 using Baked Snack due to the fact that the StageFright audio player is turned off on my build.prop :)

    How are you guys snapping those screen shots? I'll see if I can duplicate that 1300. Most are 1150-1250 but I got a couple over 1300. I have 79 installed apps, will that make a difference?

    If you're referring to a screen shooter, I don't know of one. As I recall, at one time ShootMe was that, but now works root only.

    No idea.

    But I think the Tangent works for all, and you can post the number here.

    OK, now the whole daddy metaphor is completely confused.

    Title of Evo Tangent Sharktopus is still up for grabs.
