As many of you know by now, we picked up a Samsung Galaxy S II to try to understand the massive amounts of hype that this device has seen even though it has yet to land in the U.S.  We walked through a quick hands-on yesterday, but wanted to come back today and fulfill some reader requests which called for a string of benchmarks to be done.  And since we happen to have a DROIDX2 handy, we thought it would be a great dual-core competitor to match it up against.

Here are the results we came up with after running SmartBench, CF-Bench, Linpack, Quadrant Standard, Neocore, and Nenmark1 a number of times on both devices.

Linpack:  Samsung Galaxy S II vs. Motorola DROIDX2

(Single Thread:  SGS2 vs. DROIDX2)

We’re not about to claim to be benchmark gurus by any means, but there is something pretty evident here, and that’s the fact that the Galaxy S II is wiping the floor with the DROIDX2.  (The SGS2 that I’m in possession of has a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor and the DX2 as you all know is running NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2.)  One thing I will note though, is that the DX2 is still running Froyo (Android 2.2) and a ridiculously buggy version of MotoBlur, so I wouldn’t be surprised if these numbers jumped up quite a bit after it receives Gingerbread (Android 2.3).  That’s all speculation of course.

And now we await the arrival of the DROID3 and it’s dual-core OMAP to see if it can stand up to this beast that Samsung has produced.
