Mobile Phone CPU Performances Graphed

Are you the typical consumer, confused by all of the different CPUs available in different smart phones? I made up a graph of theoretical performance differences between the various CPUs out today and for the next year.

I’ve got that first one but i usually overclock it to 800MHz or 1GHz. can anyone guess what phone I have.

would also be great to see a graph of power usage by processors.

You running UbeKernel? ;)

Based on what you made that graph, I mean, how can the a4 processor on the ipad be more powerful than the dualcore processor from TI (omap 4430) You do know that the clock speed isnt everything right? The new omap 4 series is based on the the new a9 cortex architecture.

@cathatman, im guessing you have the Nokia N900 just like me! I was surprised to see it is the weakest of all the processors however this chart makes no reference to the clock speeds.
Ive overclocked my N900 to 1Ghz instead of the stock 600Mhz and its become a real speed demon, so much so that after one whole year with it I cant find anything to change up to.
I did a speed test to see how long it takes to render on a N900 at 800 mhz vs a iphone 4, and the iphone won by a second HOWEVER iphone browser uses webkit and the N900 renders it like a real desktop.
