LG’s octa core ODIN processor gets benchamrked while underclocked


Seemingly not content, LG seems to be developing its own processor, much like Samsung’s Exynos processors. Called ODIN, this new processor was benchmarked with Antutu and spotted on the website. Unfortunately, the benchmark won’t tell us exactly how powerful it’ll be when it launches.

LG Odin processor benchmark

The benchmark doesn’t look good for LG’s new processor, because it was set to a maximum clock of 1GHz. It’s doubtful that the final processor will be clocked so low, because most processors are clocked to 1.6GHz and up these days. Plus, at only 1GHz, it doesn’t come close to the Snapdragon 800. We won’t know how strong this thing is until benchmarks are run on the fully clocked final hardware, but it should give us a decent indication of where LG is headed.

However, benchmarks don’t really mean much in terms of daily usability. A device can benchmark low but still be very fast. So don’t take these numbers as gospel, because there is so much more to a processor than the numbers it generates in an app. Hopefully we will see this new processor in the LG G3, which would be a great way for LG to debut it. Are you excited to see what LG has up its sleeve?

    27,000 clocked at only 1 GHz? Are you guys blind? That’s amazing! Yea it doesn’t come close to the snapdragon 800 but that SoC is clocked at 2.2 GHz! If LG’s processor was clocked that high it would wipe the floor with ALL of the SoC’s listed. Get your shit straight guys. You sound like noobs.

      Double the clock does not necessarily mean double the power. In fact, overclocking tends not to add too much power. If they clocked this chip at a reasonable 1.8GHz, it may beat the Snapdragon 800. In fact, it probably will. But with the Exynos S being 1.5 times stronger than the Snapdragon 800, and the Snapdragon 805 being said to be around 1.5 times faster as well, it’s hard to imagine the LG ODIN to be faster than those new players (which should be out around the same time). So yes, the LG ODIN is impressive! No doubt. But will it stand up to its REAL competition, next gen chips? Very hard to tell.

      Also, noob? I’m deeply offended…

    Nothing like competition. Lg better claim their place behind the ONLY industry leading Samsung.

    With as soft as Htc, Sony, Huawei, and Motorola has been it should be pretty easy for Lg to claim second place

    • clocinnorcal

      It’s not a GHz war. You are the only one that thinks fastest = best. Also, Samsung isn’t the “industry leader” in CPU’s.

      Dunno, but I always start laughing when looking at Richards percentile rank:2 lol

      Same song and dance from you Richard. Like a broken record, people get tired of hearing the same note skip after skip after skip! Nothing wrong with having a favorite song but damn, don’t you have any new lyrics?

      Yes, because according to you, the phrase “MOAR IS BETAAAAARRRR!!!111!!” is always true. More RAM, more cores, more GHz, more screen, more devices sold, more moar more. If it’s slow and clunky, the only thing to do is throw “more” hardware it’s way, when all it really needs is optimization. Case in point: the Moto X, which runs just as well as that “pimp slapping” Note 3 you have, with half as many cores devoted to the regular running of the OS. What a joke.

      Dude its time we got rid of you.. Ive been seeing your crap for years.. It’s annoying.. Please get smarter or go where else because even the kids in the short bus make better sense than you…

    I think LG should look for a way to minimize the level of heat been produced by their smartphones when being used.I had to dispose my optimus g880 because its exorbitant mode of heating up!!!

  • donger

    Life’s good.

    We need to things here at AAM.. a way to slim down on down and delete posts.. And second.. Get rid of Richard

    Your step-dad is an idiot because he bought a car that is shittier compared to equally priced cars both on-road and off-road.

    We’re very sorry. We do our best to get rid of spam constantly. You’re right, more serious anti-spam measures need to be applied. We will do so very soon!

    Also, Disqus isn’t the best option. From my personal experience (I can’t speak for anyone else here at AAM), it tends not to work well.

  • clocinnorcal

    I’m glad AAM is taking this seriously; however, can you guys not delete certain posts? Here is a spam comment from Amrender that could be potentially harmful to anyone that actually takes it seriously. He is advertising a site where you could download and install paid apps.
