Video: benchmarking the Intel Clover Trail+ Lenovo K900

The Clover Trail+ equipped Lenovo K900 has made an appearance at MWC, and we were curious to see how Intel’s dual-core chip is doing in the benchmarks.

The K900 has been unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, where we got to take Lenovo’s gorgeous device for a quick spin. Now, the Clover Trail+ equipped device has made an appearance at Mobile World Congress, and we were curious to see how Intel’s first dual-core mobile chip is doing in the benchmarks.

The device we got to try was a pre-production model, so it’s possible that the software wasn’t fully optimized, which may explain why the UI occasionally felt sluggish.

We installed v3.1.1 of the AnTuTu synthetic benchmark, which tests memory performance, CPU performance, and graphics, and proceeded to run it on the sleek K900. You can see the process and the results in the video below.

As you can see, the 2.0GHz Clover Trail+ processor that powers the Lenovo K900 is quite a beast. The device managed an impressive 25,138, which is ahead of the quad-core Snapdragon 600, which just made its debut on the HTC One and the Optimus G Pro. The Qualcomm chip managed a very good 22,678 in an earlier test.

Intel is betting big on the new Clover Trail+ platform, which the Santa Clara-based giant plans to put in the hands of more customers this year. For a detailed look at the technology and specs of Clover Trail+, check out this great post by my colleague Robert Triggs.

The dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 in the Lenovo K900 may not be fastest processor around though. Earlier today, we’ve reported about the amazing (like in 36,000 points in AnTuTu amazing) benchmark scores that the upcoming Tegra 4 registered. We’ll have a video of the Tegra 4 benchmarking soon, so stay tuned.

One thing is for sure — 2013 shapes out to be a very interesting year for mobile tech!
