Why is U3's GPU performance worse than SGSIII or Note 2?

Unread post by kurkosdr » Fri Jul 27, 2018 1:36 am

I know I am several years late to the party, but this always buggered me. Since the ODROID U3 has the same SoC as a Samsung Galaxy SIII or Note 2, runs a similar Android version (officially) and uses the same GPU binaries, but the SoC is operating in a much less constrained thermal form factor, why is the performance in 3D mark considerably worse than what those devices get? Again I am talking official ODROID U3 Android images.

I could be quick to pin this on "benchmark booster" aka cheating on Samsung's part but any official ROMs that had "benchmark booster" have been blacklisted by 3D Mark so the results that are there are genuine. What gives?

You might need to compare the display resolution first to make a fair GPU benchmark comparison.

Try running the benchmark at 720p, the SIII and Note II both have this resolution.
