2014 seems to be an ideal year for what it seems to be a real octa-core chip race. Among the competitors we can announce at least two names for the moment – we are talking about both LG and Samsung, but we are sure that the list is going to be much more generous than that in the upcoming months. Today we just want to inform you about the fact that the LG Odin processor has been finally revealed in a benchmark test from AnTuTu, so although we still don’t know so many details, we are at least sure about its existence.
As you probably know, this LG Odin processor was initially presented as a 64-bit compatible octa-core model that will make its way into the upcoming LG G3 that we have talked about a few days ago. But if you are one of those excited about this news and even thinking about saving money for this device, what we are going to tell you might disappoint you and make you reconsider your decision.
We must admit that things look pretty strange if we take in consideration this AnTuTu’s Benchmark Test. The LG Odin processor seems to perform similarly to a quad-core Samsung Exynos 5410, so we can only imagine that Odin isn’t after all a true octa-core processor as we were expecting. To be more specific, it will be able to use only half of the cores at once for the difficult work, while the other half will be there only for any other additional tasks.
Another disappointment is that this Odin processor is marked as running at only 100 MHz, as our source confirms. And it is obviously that we were hoping to get much more than that! And the confusion is even bigger as long as the smartphone that has been used in this test has a display resolution of only 1920×1080 pixels, while everyone is expecting a 2K resolution from LG G3.
We don’t know what to believe, excepting that maybe this isn’t LG G3, but a simple test device for understating what LG Odin Processor will be capable to offer. And we still hope that this processor isn’t actually clocked at such a low speed, as the results revealed. We set our hope in finding the truth at the CES 2014, so don’t worry, you’ll be among the first ones informed about this situation.
