The UK release date of Samsung Galaxy S3 is just around the corner. Samsung's upcoming devil will debut in UK, Germany and other parts of Europe on May 29, while it will go on sales in U.S. sometime in June. The top-class innovative features and high performance delivered by quad-core Exynos processor makes Galaxy S3 popular enough to inspire millions of people to preorder the device. Reportedly, Galaxy S3 preorders have topped 9 million.
Powered by quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos processor, Galaxy S3 is not the only quad-core rig in the market, but it is the one that has received top spotlight. The biggest competitor to Galaxy S3 is HTC One X, which is powered by quad-core 1.5 GHz processor.
The world is eager to know that which of these two Android super phones is faster. Samsung-made Exynos processors are excellent performer. However, Nvidia Tegra 3 processor in HTC's bet is clocked at higher clock speeds. The competition is believed to be tight. However, the latest benchmark scores have made things go easier for Galaxy S3 to defeat HTC One X in performance department.
Folks over at Cnet UK tested both the devices with various benchmarks and found something interesting - the 4.8-inch Galaxy S3 outgunned HTC One X in most of the benchmark tests.
In the popular Quadrant benchmark that tests CPU, memory, I/O devices and graphics, Galaxy S3 earned 5,289 points beating the One X that scored 4,904 points in the same test. In a similar test, Antuntu benchmark, Galaxy S3 got impressive 12,112 points again beating One X which got 10,827 points.
Galaxy S3 again bested in GL Bechmark's Standard Egypt test running at 59fps. Reportedly, the quad-core graphics powered new iPad also scored the same. HTC One X is again lagging in the test with a rate of 52 frames per second.
Thanks to the Exynos 4 Quad chip, Galaxy S3 has enough power to outshine against any current generation smartphone. Earlier this year, Samsung announced that its new processor supports clock speeds higher than 1.4 GHz. As the device is out, restless folks at XDA will soon find a way to overclock the processor chip to its full potential. The new chip is as energy efficient as it is powerful. Utilizing the DVFS (Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling) technology, it will have option to turn off each core whenever not required.
