Today we had a chance to play with Qualcomm's latest MDP devices (tablet and phone) which pack the company's mighty Snapdragon 800 SoC (MSM8974). The tablet is slightly larger than than last year's and features an 11.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080-pixel display, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32GB of built-in flash storage (with microSD expansion), USB 3.0 support and a 12 megapixel AF rear camera with flash (2MP fixed-focus in front). All of this is crammed into a slim (0.46 inches / 11.7mm) chassis that's powered by a 3,400mAh Li-ion battery and incorporates a bevvy of radios (LTE band 17, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4 LE, GPS, NFC) and sensors (including pressure and humidity).\nThe phone shares most of the tablet's specs but swaps the screen for a 4.3-inch panel (1,280 x 720 pixels) and the battery for a smaller (1,500mAh) pack. We put these Snapdragon 800-equipped MDPs through their paces by running our usual suite of benchmarks (plus a few more). The results? Prepare for ludicrous speed! More after the break.\n%Breakout-fc78422f-f504-3b82-a502-3f6a69fc8b5b%\n%Gallery-191752%\n%Breakout-43cf86eb-9e6f-3ff4-8205-8992ff02bc15%\nAs you can tell from the numbers, the Snapdragon 800 certainly smokes its predecessors and even Samsung's zippy Exynos 5 Octa. Still, Nvidia's Tegra 4 put up a decent fight and even managed to beat Qualcomm's processor in a couple of tests. It'll be interesting to see how the SoC wars shape up as these chips make it into consumer devices later this year. We're certainly looking forward to it.\nS800 MDP tablet (MSM8974)\t\t\tS800 MDP phone (MSM8974)\t\t\tS4 Pro MDP tablet (APQ8064)\t\t\tSamsung Galaxy S 4 (Exynos 5 Octa)\t\tQuadrant 2.0\t\t\t20,762\t\t\t22,022\t\t\t7,698\t\t\t13,326\t\tVellamo 2.0\t\t\t2,997\t\t\t2,914\t\t\t2,538\t\t\t1,977\t\tAnTuTu 3.x\t\t\t35,783\t\t\t33,828\t\t\t13,826\t\t\t28,167\t\tSunSpider 0.9.1 (ms)\t\t\t543\t\t\t566\t\t\t1,227\t\t\t732\t\tSunSpider 1.0 (ms)\t\t\t657\t\t\t674\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tGLBenchmark Egypt 2.5 Offscreen (fps)\t\t\t69\t\t\t68\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t41\t\tCF-Bench\t\t\t36,744\t\t\t33,876\t\t\t18,219\t\t\t20,800\t\tAnTuTu 3D (on-screen)\t\t\t10,143\t\t\t10,923\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t8,144\t\t3DMark (Ice Storm)\t\t\t13,738\t\t\t14,371\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t10,179\t\tGoogle Octane\t\t\t3,254\t\t\t3,292\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t3,730\t\tLinpack (multi-thread)\t\t\t819\t\t\t937\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t563\t\tSmartbench (productivity/gaming)\t\t\t10,377/4,288\t\t\t10,068/4,548\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t6,884/3,700\t\tAndEBench (native)\t\t\t17,697\t\t\t15,086\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t12,600\t\tSunSpider: lower scores are better\t\t\t\t\tSamsung Galaxy S 4 (S600)\t\t\tHTC One (S600)\t\t\tHTC First (S400)\t\t\tHTC Droid DNA (S4 Pro)\t\tQuadrant 2.0\t\t\t12,684\t\t\t12,495\t\t\t5,952\t\t\t8,028\t\tVellamo 2.0\t\t\t1,903\t\t\t2,429\t\t\t2,239\t\t\t1,752\t\tAnTuTu 3.x\t\t\t26,143\t\t\t25,140\t\t\t11,267\t\t\t14,474\t\tSunSpider 0.9.1 (ms)\t\t\t772\t\t\t991\t\t\t1,995\t\t\t1,150\t\tSunSpider 1.0 (ms)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tGLBenchmark Egypt 2.5 Offscreen (fps)\t\t\t39\t\t\t34\t\t\t14\t\t\t31\t\tCF-Bench\t\t\t28,111\t\t\t25,267\t\t\t11,267\t\t\t18,386\t\tAnTuTu 3D (on-screen)\t\t\t5,618\t\t\t6,099\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\t3DMark (Ice Storm)\t\t\t11,145\t\t\t11,495\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tGoogle Octane\t\t\t2,265\t\t\t1,524\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tLinpack (multi-thread)\t\t\t655\t\t\t567\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tSmartbench (productivity/gaming)\t\t\t7,265/2,702\t\t\t7,136/2,851\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tAndEBench (native)\t\t\t14,228\t\t\t6,808\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tSunSpider: lower scores are better\t\t\t\t\tSamsung Galaxy Note II (Exynos 4 Quad)\t\t\tNvidia Tegra 4 ref device\t\tQuadrant 2.0\t\t\t6,819\t\t\t16,436\t\tVellamo 2.0\t\t\t1,831\t\t\tN/A\t\tAnTuTu 3.x\t\t\t13,539\t\t\t36,305\t\tSunSpider 0.9.1 (ms)\t\t\t1,023\t\t\t499\t\tSunSpider 1.0 (ms)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\t\t\t\tGLBenchmark Egypt 2.5 Offscreen (fps)\t\t\t17\t\t\tN/A\t\tCF-Bench\t\t\t15,267\t\t\t41,325\t\tAnTuTu 3D (on-screen)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\t3DMark (Ice Storm)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tGoogle Octane\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tLinpack (multi-thread)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tSmartbench (productivity/gaming)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tAndEBench (native)\t\t\tN/A\t\t\tN/A\t\tSunSpider: lower scores are better\nNicole Lee contributed to this report.
