Dual-core CPU, Dual-channel RAM & Dual memory.
Let’s look at two benchmarks, Sunspider 0.9.1 which is a browser based, CPU heavy benchmark. Certainly software optimizations for their browser always helps a manufacturer, but at the end of the day, a better optimized hardware will always win out in brute strength.
Linpack also measures overall performance available by utilizing the smartphone hardware. For the below comparisons I have used the single-threaded benchmark. Sadly, we didn’t have the Galaxy SII or Bold 9900 in the office anymore to runch this benchmark on them.
Mighty impressive performance from the Optimus 3D indeed, even when single-threaded benchmarks are concerned.
What this means in the real world is that no matter which video I was viewing in YouTube, weather normal or HD, the playback was always stutter-free. Of course, I’m testing this out on my home 8 MB WiFi connection. Games like N.O.V.A. also have this completely lag-free experience, where frame rates remained consistently smooth.
Switching between apps and browsers was also very responsive, but I guess the biggest part where all the tri-dual technology comes into play is the incredible 3D experience where every 3D game or video runs just as fast as any 2D content. Especially when converting from 2D to 3D, movies, and even the technically demanding MKV files run without any issue at all. As an end-user, the tri-dual technology absolutely helps in providing a rich multimedia experience on the LG Optimus 3D.
Check back next week where we take a final look at the LG Optimus 3D with further analysis on the glasses-free 3D viewing.
