LG bench reveals new Qualcomm chip

Written by Peter Scott



1.5GHz, Adreno 320 graphics


An early benchmark of an announced LG smartphone has shed a bit more light on an upcoming Qualcomm chip.

The LG LE970 appeared in the GLBenchmark database and the benchmark reports that it rocks a 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip with next generation Adreno 320 graphics. The graphics core indicates that this is either the dual-core MSM8960 Pro or the quad-core APQ8064. Both chips sport Adreno 320 graphics and feature similar clocks.

If we were to make a guess, we would have to say that we are looking at the dual-core part, scheduled to launch in the second half of the year. The quad core should come later. Qualcomm announced the dual-core back in February, claiming that the Adreno 320 should deliver a fourfold improvement in graphics performance.

Interestingly, Qualcomm also pointed out that S4 Pro are targeted at Windows 8 devices. Needless to say, the bumped up graphics core should come in handy for high resolution tablets, and let’s not forget onboard LTE and powerful 28nm Krait processor cores. Texas Instruments and Nvidia will clearly have to play catch-up.
