    Anyone run Quadrant on gingerbread and again now with ICS? What's the difference in scores?

    Unfortunately, I don't remember my score from before, but I got a pitiful 1152 when I just ran it with ICS. Then I turned on "Force GPU rendering" and got a slightly better 1292.

    Given that Quadrant has the Nexus S listed as about a 1280 (it's on a graph so hard to get exact number), it doesn't look like ICS really sped anything up.

    Great idea. I'm going to run it after work and will post my results.

    Mine was just as bad. I wonder why it's so bad? BTW, try turning on "force GPU rendering" in the developer section of your settings and run the test again and see if it improves at all.

    with 'force GPU rendering' i get 1259 (its even with the stock Nexus S bar shown)

    yikes. i got 950 on the first run. 1043 after a battery pull/reboot.

    I wouldn't pay attention to quadrant scores.

    They probably mean more when you track changes in your own phone. There are so many parameters between phones, and even if a quadrant score is high or low, this doesn't necessarily correlate with how well your phone performs.

    Plus, if you're not running quadrant on performance governor with overclocking settings, your scores may not even be remotely compatible with other scores you see.

    1195 wuth gpu rendering & with transition animation mode set to x10..


    not much better than the 1166 before... but i'm not mad because of a point kevincwelch made last..

    i read this after i took the 1st quadrant test , along with earlier posts that paul made in this forum which mirrored the same as the link-

    "..A lower clock not only means higher yields from the factory, but likely a lower operating voltage as well. Dropping a CPU's core voltage, yields a greater-than-linear decrease in power consumption, making the marginal loss in clock speed a good choice. At a lower operating frequency than its Android competitors, Apple does have to exploit its strengths in software to avoid any tangible performance penalties. Apple has traditionally done this very well in the past, so I don't expect the loss of frequency to be a huge deal to the few who do cross-shop iOS and Android..."

    ooh, i set that force gpu rendering off, along with turning the amination conpletely off...
