Orange Santa Clara Benchmark Appears Online

Benchmarks of the new Intel Medfield platform announced at MWC and to be sold as the Orange Santa Clara have emerged online with Rightware and Vellamo being the two apps used courtesy of Caschys blog.

For the first one, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus handset comes ahead with a score of 98272 while the Medfield handset reaches 89180 and the iPhone 4S manages to score 87801. Rightware measures the performance of the browser when performing Javascript and HTML rendering tests.

Vellamo, the second test, is from Qualcomm, a rival to Intel which manufactures the Snapdragon range of processors. It includes 11 separate benchmarks and covers both hardware and software. It evaluates a number of things like rendering capabilities, screen scrolling, pixel blending and javascript performance.

The Intel phone comes third behind the Xiaomi Mi One Plus which is a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon smartphone and the Asys Transformer Prime which is a quad core model clocked at 1.5GHz and powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The phone was running Android 2.3 Gingerbread when it was tested and will come with ICS at launch which means that a bump in performance is more than likely. You can have a look at the handset - which is manufactured by Gigabyte and is based on an Atom Z2460 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz - thanks to a walkthrough we put together at MWC back in February 2012.
