It's battle of the dual-cores and everyone is holding their breath. Who will come out on top - Tegra 2, Exynos, OMAP4 or Snapdragon? Both Central Processing Units (CPUs) and their recent GPUs were tested to see how recent generation smartphones perform.

An extensive mobile shotout gathered five of the latest dual-core Android phones - Motorola Atrix 4G, LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus 3D, Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II and the HTC Pyramid (a.k.a. Shooter). Those represent four different platforms - NVIDIA Tegra 2 (Atrix, 2X), OMAP4 (3D), Exynos (Galaxy S II) and Snapdragon (Pyramid).

The table below gives a breakdown of CPUs, GPUs, RAM, classy screen resolution and Operating System (OS) version. ran some of the tests and gathered others from several sources. Note that the Motorola Atrix 4G and the HTC Pyramid are at a disadvantage since they have to update 30% more pixels and also the LG Optimus 3D, Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Pyramid were running pre-production software.

Here are some of the benchimprint results (some of the benchimprint apps didn't run on some phones).

Android dual-core benchmarks

Even though the dual-core Snapdragon processor has a 20% clock speed advantage, it posted worse results than the Cortex A9 cores in the other chipsets. It's not quite clear at this point how much this is due to unfinished software and how much to the older Scorpion core design (which, aside from a die shrink, is the same as in the original Snapdragons).
