All the recently announced super chips for mobile devices that comparatively soon will carry the power of desktop PCs are highly intriguing and will eventually change the way we use computers – because they’re going to be powered by our phones. It will take a while for us to get there, though, and there are several soon-to-be-available devices that pack some serious hardware right now. Of all of those, benchmarking apps have revealed that the LG Optimus 3D is the king of the hill.

The Optimus 3D rocks a dual-core 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor that beats other ARM Cortex A9 chips such as Samsung’s Exynos and Nvidia’s Tegra 2. AnandTech has arranged a fight between these new processors, and a bunch of older devices participate in the battle as well.

In browser and graphical benchmarks, the LG Optimus 3D with its OMAP 4 chip performed the best in basically all of the tests. LG’s device features dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture, and it seems like it has paid off. Please note that devices with a higher screen resolution, such as the Atrix 4G, will get a lower score because they’re pushing more pixels. You can check out the scores for various devices in the graphs below.

Do these kinds of tests influence your decision when it comes to buying a new phone?
