Test System Specs, Benchmark Suite and Methodology
Test System Specs
The table below contains all the pertinent technical specifications for today’s comparison units:
We tested the Snapdragon 805 SoC in four key sections: CPU, GPU, GPGPU, and Web.
|CPU Core Benchmarks||AnTuTu X (Anti-Detection), Basemark OS II Full (Anti-Detection), Geekbench 3 Pro (Anti-Detection)|
|GPU Core Benchmarks||3DMark (Anti-Detection), Basemark X 1.1 Full (Anti-Detection), GFXBench 3.0 Corporate|
|Web Benchmarks||JSBench, Peacekeeper 2.0, WebXPRT 2013|
All devices are benchmarked on a fully updated copy of the device's stock software. The table below lists other common device settings that we standardize to before testing.
|Cellular||SIM card removed|
|Display Mode||Device Default (nonadaptive)|
|Sleep||Never (or longest available interval)|
Furthermore, for browser-based testing on Android, we're employing a static version of the Chromium-based Opera in order to keep the browser version even across all devices. Due to platform restrictions, Safari is the best choice for iOS-based devices, while Internet Explorer is the only game in town on Windows RT.
