LG ODIN Octa-core Processor Spotted in AnTuTu Benchmarks

LG logo

Samsung looks to have competition coming up the rear, as LG’s very own ODIN octa-core processor was spotted running on the AnTuTu benchmark website. While the score may not look completely off the charts, the processor was reportedly only clocked to just 100MHz to 1GHz, which means you won’t see it blow the shoes off of other silicon on the chart when compared to their clock speeds of 1.6GHz and up. 

Even still, it beat out Samsung’s Exynos 5410, which is the chip that powers the international variant of the Galaxy S4. Unfortunately for us, the chip doesn’t directly compete to the Snapdragon 800 on these charts in performance, which is the high-end chip we usually compare newcomers to. Still, not too bad for being underclocked. Graphics running through the chip should be pushed to the extreme for mobile, as the GPU is stated to be the Power VR Series 6, a beast piece of hardware in its own right.

No hints can be seen as to what phone we should expect this in, but with rumors of an LG G3 coming around the time of MWC this year, things are starting to heat up.

    The Exynos Octa Core is also in the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

    LG needs to change their logo. Its screams “cheap” to me :/
    A redesign would better their image I think.

  • Jarred Sutherland

    Oh wow an 8 core CPU for a mobile device where the already existing 4 core CPUs are not remotely fully utilized. Obviously it’s great that technology presses onward but this is nothing but a drain on battery having to lug around a bunch of cores that aren’t properly utilized.

    • Ryan

      Not really. more cores at lower clock speed helps with battery efficiency.

        Not then the apps aren’t multithreaded.

        • HarvesterX

          Creating threads to delegate tasks in Android with Java is increbily easy as the classes are all already there. By design, Android is multithreaded. Even in native C/C++ it’s just as easy. Even if manually registering functions to be called on new threads.

  • RiotingPanda

    Everyone is talking about the benchmark, and I’m sitting here thinking, IT’S TIM!

    • Thomas

      I know, thank goodness he’s back !!! Tim, I’ ve been a train wreck w/o you ;)

  • kixofmyg0t

    It has the Rogue GPU? Jesus that thing is gonna be a BEAST. Perhaps it will have a 1440p or 1600p screen as well?

    I’ll be keeping an eye on this LG SoC.

    • meld

      lol, you have no idea how big.LITTLE works
      And it’s just 1GHz clock speed max

      • kixofmyg0t

        I’m very well aware how big.LITTLE works and that its only 1Ghz in the test.

        But when it doesn’t really do better than chips with 6 fewer cores you shouldn’t be impressed. Samsung’s Exynos Octa is a great example. Even with big.LITTLE and a gracious clock speed advantage it doesn’t impress. And it gets clobbered in performance and battery life tests by chips with fewer cores.

    is it 64 bit? Only buying if it is ENTIRELY next-gen, not 3/4, 8/10, 99%, etc.

    • Elliot Kotis

      64 bit is a gimmick, it actually bottle necks the rest of the phone. iPhone 5S reports 50% MORE crashes than iPh 5 and 5C.

      • HarvesterX

        64 bit is essential on the 5S for the simple reason of on the fly encryption/decryption and is why the phone unlocks so quickly after placinga finger on the fingerprint scanner.

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    And they had to name it ODIN. Just name your new phone the LG Galaxy S5 already.

    • Tim242

      I know. LG is as bad as a Chinese knockoff. They even put lead in their cords. I hope people wash their hands!

      • Diablo81588

        Samsung is equally as bad if not worse. Koreans are just as bad as the Chinese about copying.

        • Tim242

          Samsung makes its own components. Hush.

          • HarvesterX

            Lol

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        Well I still like what lg is doing as far as quality hardware and top notch specs, but they could be a little less sublte with the copying lol

  • Shirtless_Peja

    Coming up the rear…..heh heh

  • Maxim∑

    Amazing how Apple’s whole line of devices is using PowerVR Rouge and its not mentioned here at all to compare

    • veRdiKt

      Thats because PowerVR is a GPU not a CPU.

      • Maxim∑

        when did I say it was a CPU?

        • HarvesterX

          Maxim, I was responding to verdick :)

      • HarvesterX

        Because the S5 uses a X7 CPU, which uses the Power VR GPU. The same as saying that every SD800 CPU uses a Adreno 330 GPU.

    • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

      I think you took a wrong turn, you may have been looking for 9to5mac

      • Maxim∑

        I actually am a converted bias sheep…. now half iPad air,half Nexus 5 was hoping android forums would not react the same way when you mention another company besides Google but nope NOPE NoPe NOpe

    • hackthis02

      Looks like you turned down the wrong street friend. Better had back to AppleInsider

      • Maxim∑

        I’ve never gone on Appleinsider in my life

    • socalrailroader

      Crapple, that’s the name you’re thinking of.

    • HarvesterX

      Don’t see why…the X7 or whatever it is is the best CPU out theresso far I’ve seen (for mobile devices). Then again it doesn’t have to sorry about any sort of real multitasking.

  • TSON1

    “100MHz – 1GHz” was that supposed to be 1000MHz or is it ranging from 100MHz to 1GHz?

    • http://www.whatsinthemix.com/ Mychal Hix

      Looks to be like a range, like most processors are.

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      it’s ranging from 100MHz to 1GHz.

    • Brandon Golway

      Ranging from 1000 MHz to 1 GHz wouldn’t make sense since they’re the same thing.

      • TSON1

        It could have been like “1000MHz – 1GHz”, used like an “AKA”. But.
