The Samsung Galaxy S is equipped with the Hummingbird processor which has a GPU that is said to produce 3 times faster performance than it’s competitor on the market today. The video below is proof. The HTC Desire is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. These two devices go head to head showing off a Quake 2 running test. You be the judge.

That Hummingbird processor moves through the game without any delay while the Snapdragon processor in the HTC Desire spends the whole game trying to keep up. Obviously, we can see the Galaxy S take the cake on this one. Still not enough? Below is the Galaxy S playing Kwaak 3 (The ported name of Quake 3).

I must say this processor and GPU is a monster!

    Looking good. Cant wait to see how the Samsung S performs against the other high-end android devices

      There wouldn’t be much difference in the other “high-end” HTC phones as they’re all running the same Snapdragon. I’m guessing the only Androids that could give the Galaxy S a run for its money, graphics-wise, would be Motorola’s Droid 2 or Droid X.

      That said, I know how I’ll be testing phones when it comes time to buy one.

    The Samsung S series does NOT use the snapdragon CPU or chipset, but instead uses Samsung’s own Hummingbird CPU\GPU combo, which is very similar to the iPhone4’s A4 or A8 (whatever they call it, Samsung developed it). The GPU portion of the architecture is significantly faster than the Snapdragon, as demonstrated in the Q3A demo

      I guess I didn’t make it clear in my comment, I meant the HTC Desire has the Snapdragon, and any other HTC phone of this generation. So it wouldn’t matter if you were comparing the Galaxy S to the Desire, Nexus One, Incredible… they’d all perform about the same. Yeah obviously the Galaxy S is running something much more powerful, which only the TI processor + GPU combo inside Motorola’s devices can compete with.

    samsung galaxy gpu runs 90 million triangles a second while most snapdragon processor runs around 14 to 22 million triangles a second. so do the math

    Can someone run this test in a side by side comparison with the Droid X since its using a TI OMAP Processor. Will Android 2.2 Froyo have any affect on how smooth this is.
