HTC One X with Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 gets benchmarked, beats down NVIDIA Tegra 3 in test


HTC’s latest superphone, the One X, will be coming in two flavors – a quad-core Tegra 3 version for the regular market, and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 for the LTE folk. On paper, most people would assume that the quad-core Tegra 3 version would smoke the dual-core Snapdragon S4 version in the benchmarks, but surprisingly that isn’t the case at all.

An AT&T employee has posted on the Android Central forums preliminary results from two benchmarks – Quadrant and Vellamo – which show the Snapdragon S4 version of the One X trouncing almost every other mobile device currently out, including the Tegra 3 equipped Asus Transformer Prime.

While synthetic benchmark tests on their own are in no way representative of actual, everyday performance, it’s gives users a rough idea of what they can expect out of a device.
