    Hummingbird's PowerVR SGX540 can do 90M triangles/sec, but according to webpage for mali-400mp from Arm's website, it can only do 30M triangles/sec. That does not sound like the 5x performance samsung talked about. Then what am I missing to understand??

    Naa, SGX540 gets 28M I believe, even so 30M still isnt much of an improvement, buts theres more to performance than triangles/sec.

    ^Yea...I think the gpu in the Incredible and EVO did more triangles per second vs. the gpu in the Droid 1.

    Droid 1 had the better gpu overall tho..

    I hear its a quad core GPU... O_O

    Yeah I also read somewhere that the Exynos chipset has a quad core GPU, the Tegra 2 has an 8 core gpu. None of this means much until they can be tested side by side..

    I'm not sure that's true, the Tegra 2 SoC (system-on-a-chip) has "8 cores" as you can see detailed below, but we are looking at GPU itself. Mali 400 MP is the GPU, not the SoC.

    This is actually a little confusing. :eek:

    The powerVR 540 usually runs at 200 mhz so 90 million triangles is not accurate from what I have read. On the powerVR site, they say the powerVR sgx545 does 40 million triangles a sec!
    But every site on the internet reported 90 million triangles for the sgx540 so it must be true (sarcasm)
    I think how many pixels a sec the GPU can draw is very important too, not just the triangles a sec figure.
    The Adreno 200 was listed at 22 million triangles a sec (good) but only 133 p/sec (bad) so that is why it is not very good at 3d games.
    Where as the sgx540 was listed at 1000 p/sec, and in reality was probably 30-35 million triangles a sec.
    I am only repeating what I read from the manufactures web sites, so if I am wrong blame them!
