Rumors in the past have indicated that LG is looking to work on its own home grown chipset called Odin which would be used in all future flagships. This chipset is believed to be octa core and based on ARM’s big-LITTLE architecture similar to the Exynos 5 Octa chipset from Samsung. LG’s Odin chipset has now been spotted on AnTuTu benchmarks with results available for all to see. Well, it’s nothing out of the ordinary and strangely similar to what we’ve come to see from Samsung’s last gen Exynos 5410 chipset. The chipset managed to score a moderate 27,184 points on AnTuTu while the likes of the NVIDIA Tegra 4 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 easily outscored the Odin.
The other bit of bad news is that despite being octa-core, the LG Odin will not be able to run all eight CPU cores at once which is something MediaTek can brag of with its MT6592 chipset. What makes us optimistic about the Odin though is the fact that it was tested on a prototype running Android 4.2 and at a relatively lower clock speed as well, so its performance should be substantially better with new gen software. The AnTuTu results reveal that the prototype featured 2GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a 1080p display, which is inconsequential as it probably has no bearing on the actual result. We can expect the chipset to handle 2K resolution displays without breaking a sweat, which is good news.
