Intel’s first jump into the smartphone CPU fray seems to have turned out a lot better than expected as it challenged Nvidia and Qualcomm’s leading positions in the processor industry.
Although the device is running only a single-core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2460 processor, the figures suggest that it would be a competitor worth noticing for dual-core devices like even HTC’s latest One X.
The tests that were performed by Anandtech ranged from benchmarks measuring browsing performance, low level FP performance and flash rendering speed, to GPU performance and battery life. For most of the tests, the X900 was beaten by the HTC One S and One X which are currently the two most powerful smartphones.
It apparently was able to stand its ground against devices like the Samsung Galaxy S2, the LG Optimus 3D and the Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx which all feature dual-core chips.
