The mobile processor market is definitely heating up. Before long our smartphones will be as powerful as our low-end laptops. AMD and Intel need to start developing like this again, it'll make for even greater enhancements and increases in performance.

That is not true, SGS 2 with Snapdragon performed just as good as the version with Tegra 2, IIRC.

There is no tegra 2 version of the SGS2.
The T-Mobile version, which has a 1.5ghz snapdragon, is not up to par with the other versions which have the samsung exynos SoC, read the engadget review.

Not in US, apparently. I'm not sure if it got released in the end, but I think the Indian version of SGS 2 is Tegra-powered (not sure). And there were some benchmarks that said Tegra 2 was just as good as the other chip.

There is no GS2 with a tegra 2 SoC....
However, there is the tegra 2 Galaxy R , which launched last month, only in taiwan...

Also in Russia, IIRC.

Well, I guess they cancelled it or it never made it to the US. I'll go to Samsung store on the weekend and ask if it's Tegra 2 or Exynos.

It's a shame that software isn't exactly keeping up. Hardware has more than doubled in speed this past year yet the software is pretty much the same and there aren't any signs of this changing any time soon.

We'll be stuck with dual-core 1.5-2.0Ghz SOC phones running software that a 1Ghz phone can do with ease. If at least games had different settings so every type of phone can fully utilize their hardware.

I was under the impression that the Galaxy S 2 only had two cpu variants, the Samsung Exynos 4210 and the Nvidia Tegra 2

I'd rather they focus on battery life. 1-3 days is a joke, my old Nokia phone does better than that.

For a long time the Galaxy R was called a Galaxy S II, every site on the planet considered it a Galaxy S II with a Tegra 2. The reason for that is that the Galaxy R is a variant in the Galaxy S II family.

Galaxy S2 can run Quake 3, IIRC, and you can plug it into HDMI TV.

maybe when they cut alot of the legacy code out of it, make it more efficient. that's what I like about arm, sure its limited but they cut where processes are no longer needed, x86/x64 do not
