New architecture. From what I hear, the new chip at 800 runs better and uses less battery than the current 1GHz Snapdragon
And the GPU is great. Slightly better than Droid X, slightly behind the Galaxy S -- so basically all of the big 3 have equivalent GPU's...for now.ಠ_ಠ

People need to understand that this 800mhz SoC has a better architecture, and GPU with 4x the performance of the previous Snapdragon.
It will be way better than the Nexus One, EVO 4G, Incredible... And more on par with the iPhone 4, and Samsung Galaxy S phones.

It uses the same 45nm architecture as the new 3600 series OMAP cores. They produce lower voltages, and faster cycles. The G2 will smoke the EVO, Incredible, and N1 in terms of performance.
Sherifone, did you read my original post? I asked about the GPU.

Don't start talking about out performing the evo until it actually is out and has done so, what seems good on paper doesn't always translate. (Except for gaming, Evo doesn't handle that so well. Unless youre rooted )
Same goes for hspa+ beating sprint wimax 4G.
I'll believe it all when I see it hahaSome say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

I have ran cm6 which is stock, and theres not much speed difference for me. Sense adds alot to android imo anyways.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

Decent performance, not great performance
I counted pixels on the image that Jerry posted. The Nexus One received an 820% increase in "CPU" performance from 2.2. Extrapolating that to the Galaxy S, the CPU score for those devices would be 1175.
In terms of processor performance, that would make a Galaxy S with 2.2 18% faster than the G2.
Also worth noting is the faster I/O on the Galaxy S: About 130 points difference, which is a 61% performance advantage for the Galaxy S. Presumably this would be unaffected by the 2.2 upgrade.
I don't play games on my phone, so I don't care about the other parts of the benchmark.
In terms of real-world effects, I'm not usually frustrated by the foreground app being too slow; it's usually switching between apps when I start to notice delay. The 61% performance benefit of the Galaxy's I/O system is therefore probably much more significant to me compared to the difference in processor performance.
I was planning to return my two Epics next week... This has given me something to think about.

I'd geta G2 over an epic anyday, and G2's arent even out.
If you want it to be a faster cpu just root it and overclock, im sure that the 800mhz is not what its fully capable of.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

If so, bravo man. Bravo.

please settle down guys. this discussion has definitely educated me because i was questioning why htc would put and 800 mghz processor on a brand new phone which seems to be t-mobile's new flagship device. please stay on topic and continue discussing but do not start bashing each other because it is not adding anything to the topic at all.

Play nice guys, the Internet is a free place for everyone. At least until the ignorant masses make Steve Jobs overlord.
Final say- Yes the processor is 800mhz. But it should outperform all previous 1ghz Snapdragons, as it is made with new technology. So stop worrying. If the G2 has problems, I don't think it will be due to the processor.
I'm going to go grab some cake now...
