Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) Benchmarked, Check Out Its Scores

By 02:09 Mon, 26 Jul 2021 Comments


The Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) has been in the hands of the folks over at Laptopmedia.com for a couple of days now, and they've had the time to run a few benchmarks on the upcoming sequel before its official launch tomorrow. The results will leave you with mixed feelings, though, as some of the numbers aren't what you'd call a drastic improvement.

The Central Processing Units (CPU) scores of the recent model indicate a significant boost in performance, brought about by the more powerful and higher-clocked 1.36Giga Hertz (GHz) Cortex-A53 cores inside the Snapdragon 410, compared to the 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) Cortex-A7 quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) of the S400. The 40% increase in Geekbench 3 brings the Moto G (3rd gen) ahead of the current Moto E (2nd gen) where it belongs, but also leaves the S410 competition comfortably behind.

GeekBench 3

Higher is better

  • Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) LM

  • Lenovo S90 Sisley

  • Motorola Moto G (2nd gen) LM

    1174

Qualcomm's own benchmarks paint largely the same picture, with substantial performance improvements of 31% in Vellamo 2 Metal and even more impressive 44% in Vellamo 3 Metal.

Antutu brings the other main components in the mix (memory, storage and GPU) and the excitement quiets down a little, though the improvements are still there.

  • Xiaomi Redmi 2

  • Lenovo S90 Sisley

    19690

  • Motorola Moto G (2nd gen) LM

    19335

Moving on to graphics benchmarks, you can see why the overall performance boost doesn't correspond to the increase in Central Processing Units (CPU) power. The Adreno 306 inside the S410 in the third-gen Moto G is clocked a bit lower than the predecessor, resulting in marginally lower figures in the GPU tests. That said, the 2015 Moto G is on par with similarly equipped competitors, so no unpleasant surprises here, really.

Mind you, the comparisons above are between the two generations of Moto Gs tested by Laptopmedia.com (hence the LM), while the other scores are taken from our database, but that should have negligible effect on the results. Also, given the supposedly unchanged $180 launch price of the recent generation, the boost in Central Processing Units (CPU) power while retaining the graphics performance, is a reasonable compromise.
