30% Faster Smartphone w/FinFET Atom (Intel)

Mysterious Android device with Intel's Bay Trail (FinFET Atom) chip establishes AnTuTu benchmark records (43,416 points)
Today, a mystery Android 4.2.2 device running Intel’s next generation of mobile processors – Bay Trail (FinFET Atom) – has surfaced, which blows those chart-topping numbers clean out of the water. The smartphone or tablet posted an unheard so far score of over 43,000 (43,416 points). This is apparently at 1.1GHz, while running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The first benchmarks of Intel’s upcoming Bay Trail SoC is around 30% faster than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz, the fastest ARM chip on the market. By comparison, the latest Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced support, with the Snapdragon 800, scores 31,491. To round out the comparison, Exynos 5 Octa (in the Galaxy S4) scores around 26,275, and Snapdragon 600 scores around 24,716. Bay Trail-T is Intel’s upcoming 22nm tablet-oriented SoC with four Silvermont cores, due out sometime this year (probably fall).

How good would the battery life be?

 Mystery device running on Intel’s Bay Trail thrashes competition

If you thought Snapdragon 800 is the summit at which mobile processing power is going to peak for at least 2013, wait until you read this. No it’s neither Tegra, nor Exynos that we’re talking about. Instead, the Snapdragon 800 might soon be dethroned by none other than an Intel Atom processor.

A mystery device codenamed byt_t_ffrd10 was spotted on popular benchmarking tool, AnTuTu. The device featured an Intel Bay Trail processor (that will be the successor to Clover Trail+) and was clocked at just 1.1GHz instead of its usual speed of 2.1GHz. Now this is where it gets exciting. The device managed to attain a score of 43416 on AnTuTu running on Android 4.2.2. To give a fair idea of how huge that number is, the recently launched Xperia ZU and Galaxy S4 LTE-A with Snapdragon 800 could only achieve close to 34,000 points in the benchmark test. Snapdragon 600 and Exynos 5 Octa fall even behind with close to 24,000 points and 26,000 points respectively.

Now the only concern remaining would be the power usage of Bay Trail processor. Of course if Intel could master that as well, we wouldn’t have to tell you what you can expect on Galaxy S5 or probably other flagships from LG and others.
