Well the race in the SoC’s (System on a Chip) doesn’t seem to end, with Samsung recently hinting the release of the new Exynos 6 & Exynos S line of SoC’s at CES 2014 its about time their biggest rival from there homeland, LG set some fires too. The previously rumored LG ODIN chip has been tested by AnTuTu benchmark application, to refresh you on the LG ODIN chips are supposed to be Octa-Core in nature but the results that are obtained aren’t a Snapdragon 800 killer yet.
As you can see the LG ODIN Octa-Core scored 27,184 points in the AnTuTu Benchmark compared to the 35,628 of the Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) but LG ODIN did manage to beat Samsung’s Exynos 5410 which is the heart of the International Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) so it’s a good start for sure. There was also an important aspect that should be mentioned here about the LG ODIN Octa-Core which is that it was clocked at a low speed (100 MHz-1GHz) in the testing process, this makes it a rather strong performer at such low clock speeds when compared to the 1.6-2.3Ghz that Samsung Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 use so it might not be a total waste saying that LG might finally make a beast to compete with Samsung’s Exynos and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC’s by the time the LG G3 debuts sometime in Q2-Q3 next year. Additionally the Graphical performance is expected to be great on LG’s ODIN SoC, as its GPU will be the Power VR Series 6.
