Rockchip RK29xx Phone Benchmarked (Quadrant)
The picture is a bit small, but it appears a Rockchip Rk29xx – or Rockchip’s upcoming new generation of SoC based on Cortex A8 architecture – powered phone has scored 19xx points in Quadrant. When compared with the TI OMAP3530 in our MIDnite unit, the RK29xx has a clear lead with a near 400 point advantage! It’s got a 1000 point advantage over the A8-based Freescale iMX515 tablet we tested in Quadrant, too. Though the version of Quadrant we tested was older than this version used to test the RK29xx, the difference is simply too large to be attributed to that. It seems that the RK29xx’s SoC is really quite powerful in 3D performance, likely due to a good 3D graphics accelerator on the SoC solution. With CES just around the corner, and RK29xx scheduled to make its debut then, we couldn’t be more excited to see what other surprises are in store – we hope to see more benchmark results on the likes of Linpack and Neocore. Rockchip have already confirmed 1080p video playback – but we wouldn’t have expected anything less. After the break a video of the phone device doing video playback – we presume it is HD video, though no attempt is made by the video creators to confirm this on camera.
