It seems that someone with access to a Dalmore Tegra 4 evaluation board decided to see how it does on the GLBenchmark GPU benchmark for Android.
The results, if they turn out to be legitimate, show Nvidia’s latest mobile SoC offering as capable of some promising graphics performance, but ultimately falls short of taking the top spot away from Apple’s A6X chip.
According to the benchmark results, the display the board was attached to had a resolution of 1920 x 1128 pixels, with the Tegra 4 chip running at a clock speed of 1.8GHz on Android 4.2.1. For comparisons sake, the iPad 4 numbers can be found here.
Keep in mind that these numbers, even if they are actually a Tegra 4-running board, are not reflective of the overall performance you might get from an actual device running the Tegra 4 architecture, just its graphics prowess. With four Cortex-A15 CPU cores at hand, the Tegra 4 should be able to easily outdo its Apple-made competitor in terms processing power.
Latest generation of Samsung devices are already tasting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Samsung is working hard to update the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note for quite some time and as it seems the Galaxy Note update is just a question of time.
Samsung has just announced the so-called Premium Suite for the original Galaxy Note N7000 (similar to the one the Galaxy S III is getting). It will be based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will bring the Project Butter smoothness and Google Now assistant. In addition to those, Samsung will give you plenty of new features to enjoy.
With a refreshed UI appears very similar to its successor, owners of the original Galaxy Note will be getting MultiView (the unique “two apps on the screen” feature), popup versions of the Note, Video and Browser apps, handwriting support in the S Planner and Email, enhanced S Note app, Photo Note, Paper Artist, and the addictive Easy Clip function that allows you to crop and share images and text with the stylus. Owners of Samsung’s original phablet can also start dabbling with Google Now, which will continue to pluck information from your search history, location and timezone. And a few more.
For the right moment there’s no information on when and where the update will rollout, but we guess it’s just a matter of few weeks.
