    Of course people on here will argue to their death that benchmarks either matter or don't matter. But early benchmarks show the GPU in the A7 outperforms the GPU in the Snapdragon 800 (Adreno 330 I believe).

    Egypt offscreen fps for the iPhone 5S is 56 and the Snapdragon 800 (image taken from LG G2 Mini Review on Anandtech) gets 52.

    I know a lot of people here hate iPhones. But you have to admit, they typically do a good job of putting good mobile GPUs in their devices.

    I am not here to argue one way or the other. There are more important things than a 4fps difference. I just thought this was worth sharing.

    I wonder if the performance will be better once they recompile the benchmark into 64 bit. Very surprised that Apple doubled both the CPU and GPU performance with the methods they did. Wasn't expecting the switch to ARMv8 and 64 bit until next year.

    That's an old version of gl benchmark. The latest version is 2.71. The iPhone is running version 2.5.

    The g2 is also running open gl 2. The nexus 5 will be running opengl 3.

    Are you saying the G2 is running the older version or the iPhone is?

    The numbers above show the G2 running 2.7 and the iPhone running 2.5. If those are the correct version numbers, wouldn't that mean the iPhone still beats out the G2 despite it running on an older version?

    Heres my nexus 7 with an adreno 320 on android 4.3 This is not overclocked. Running at the stock 1.5ghz cpu/400mhz gpu frequency. The adreno 330 is quite a bit faster than this. Also keep in mind that the qualcomm chip listed at the top of the chart in the first post is the adreno 330/snapdragon 800.

    The galaxy note 3 scores 68fps in the very same version of Egypt bench for off screen bench and the octo core is said to be 10-20% faster

    Currently the note 3 is the fastest phone

    Very interesting information coming from this thread. Now I am getting even more excited about the Snapdragon 800 in the upcoming Nexus 5 :D
