Do not be surprised when I say that the Samsung Galaxy S has the fastest Graphics Processing Unit or GPU. It may not be as famous as the iPhone 3G, the Motorola Droid, or other Android mobile phones, but they are nowhere near the Galaxy S when it comes to having the most powerful Graphics Processing Unit in a mobile phone.
So what am I talking about? Why is GPU important? Basically, Graphics Processing Unit or GPU is a specialized logic chip or a single chip processor that is committed in rendering 3D images or graphics in the likes of 3D motions, object transformations, lighting effects, etc. It is basically used in game consoles, personal computers, laptops and other mobile phones. It enables embedded systems to run in a swift and efficient manner. Without it, you will not be able to enjoy your games or graphics to be precise. With a refined and faster GPU plus better screen for your mobile phone, you will end up with true to life video displays, vivid and realistic games.
The Samsung Galaxy S is equipped with S5PC110 processor. This is what makes this phone relatively fast than most Android phones of today. The S5PC110 contains 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 chip. Intrinsity is the one that designed the Cortex A8 is considered as the fastest chip that there is today. It can process at least 90 million triangles per second. Most Android phones that are out in the market today did not even reach the 30 million mark.
If you have heard of the Snapdragon that is being used by most Android phones today, then you will know the difference between their FAST and the Galaxy S’ FAST! The Motorola Droid’s GPU is only at 7 – 14 million triangles per second, while the Nexus One’s is only at around 22 million, the famous iPhone 3GS is only with 28 million. With 90 million, this makes the Samsung Galaxy S as the fastest one in the market today.
You will truly enjoy this phone if you are all about having powerful graphics and faster processor. Not to mention that this phone is also a looker, well, suffice it to say, better than most Android phones in the market today. So if you want to have a powerful Graphics Processing Unit or GPU in a mobile phone, then the Samsung Galaxy S is the one for you.
