Nvidia Tegra 4 gets early benchmark running on Project Shield

Tegra 4 scores 32000 points on AnTuTu benchmark

Nvidia's forthcoming Tegra 4 chip may have received an early benchmark if an AnTuTu score that has been posted online is to be believed. According to the post, the Tegra 4 produced a score of over 32,000 points, outgunning the 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 found in the Samsung Galaxy S4. By comparison, the Galaxy S4's Snapdragon chip produces a score of 25,000 points, while the HTC One with the same Snapdragon chip clocked at 1.7GHz scores 23,600 points.

The figure comes out of China running on what is purported to be Nvidia's Project Shield Android-powered handheld gaming console. The Project Shield device, first shown at CES in January, is tracking for between Q2 and Q3. It is possible that a developer ran the test with early access to a Project Shield device, or it is a leaked factory prototype.

Or, it also possible that the figures in the AnTuTu benchmark have been faked. Regardless, the result is not beyond the realms of possibility and is probably in line with expectations. It is not until Qualcomm releases the Snapdragon 800clocking up to 2.3GHz that the performance tables may be turned back in Qualcomm's favor. Either way, the pace of performance improvements in mobile chips remains incredible to behold. [via Phone Arena]
