The OMAP 5430 is a 28nm part, featuring two A15 cores and SGX544MP2 graphics, so it is hardly surprising that it outpaces existing chips, based on A9 cores.

In TI’s tests, the new chip outperformed the “market-leading tablet” or should we say the new iPad, powered by an A5X SoC. In GLBenchmark 2.5 off-screen tests, OMAP 5 scored 45fps, while the “market-leading tablet” got 43. The old OMAP 4470 scored 19fps.
