Quadrant: Nationite MIDnite V.S. The Telly Belly
Today we pitted two familiar rivals against each other: in one corner we had the Nationite MIDnite, sporting the powerful Cortex A8 TI OMAP3530 processor clocked at 800 MHz. In the other corner we had the Telly Belly, powered by the Telechips TCC8902 chip clocked at 720MHz. The match? Quadrant benchmark developed by Aurora Softworks, a comprehensive CPU/Memory/3D/2D benchmarking suite. The results? Well, the MIDnite positively hogged the spotlight, showing up even the Nexus One. The Telechips-based MID poured in a disappointing score, but at least this time was able to render 3D correctly. Read on for the scores.
The two above pictures show you on the left, the MIDnite and on the right, the TCC8902-powered MID that we’ve christened the Telly Belly. The results pretty much show themselves on the graph, but we’ll post two more pictures so you can see the actual scores.
The MIDnite is seen putting in 1804 points, what looks like some 400+ points higher than the Google Nexus One with Android 2.2, and it’s 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Impressive indeed for the OMAP3530 chip that powers the MIDnite (also known as the Wits A81-E).
The Telechips TCC8902-based MID, the Telly Belly, puts in a score of 267 which was a surprise for us. Though it only runs Android 2.1 and is thus without the radical speed improvements that came with 2.2, the score is still quite lowly. Where the Telly Belly lacks in raw power, though, it makes up for in its extremely impressive 1080p video decoding capabilities.
The results are definitely interesting and don’t require much analysis. They speak for themselves.
