Rumour – PlayStation Phone video shows off benchmark

Friday, 10th December 2010 10:36 GMT By Johnny Cullen


So much for that reveal yesterday, then.

Engadget has up a video of the PlayStation Phone in action, apparently showing it’s 3D capabilities being benchmarked.

As the site points out, it only did a 22.4FPS, which is dramatically less then the 55.6FPS from a Nexus S. But remember, it’s most likely not final software or hardware, so take with a pinch of salt.

Video’s below.

    Only 22.4fps?

    GT5 should run just fine then.

    Not horrible, could be better, i’ve had Reach drop to 1/2 a frame per second in the campaign where you help Emile shoot down banshees with rockets on Sword Base

    So definitely not the PSPs successor then.

    I suppose if the device launches with the full PSP/PSN back catalogue it could be quite a cool phone.

    Still worried it will confuse the market though.

    @3, I’m skeptical that it’ll even have PSP games, i expect it’ll have PSN games like the minis, but i think it’ll be completely seperate from the PSP with it’s own catalogue, not sure if that’ll be a good or bad thing yet.

    Anything that adds another fragment to the PSP market is a BAD thing.

    The way I see it is Sony need to wipe the slate clean, stop promoting the PSP and focus on the PSP2.

    Let there be ONE sku of the PSP2 and put everything into that.

    Remember that(from wikipedia) “The PSP uses two 333 MHz MIPS32 R4000-based CPUs, a GPU with 2 MB onboard VRAM running at 166 MHz, and includes 32 MB main RAM and 4 MB embedded DRAM in total”, while the nexus s has 1GHZ cpu and 512 MB ram.
    So it’s clearly possible that the psphone makes 24 fps on benchmarks AND plays psp games ;)

    The Nexus S is a very sexy looking phone btw.

    I’ve always thought that Samsung did good hardware, but their software has always let them down. Thank fuck for Android then eh?

    To be fair, that benchmarking demo they’re using ( the Neocore Open GL one) is quite shit, even if it does look the part on a mobile phone.

    I’ve used it on several Android phones and the results it returns vary a hell of a lot. Additionally, now that phones are basically handheld PCs you’ve got too much to take into account when looking for reliable benchmarks. How long had the phone been switched on? Was the Wi-Fi/GPS/3G on? What background applications were running etc?

    The benchmark they’re using is coded for a specific kind of mobile GPU so it’s not a very good indicator of performance regardless of the hardware/software being in a final state.

    See the Tegra 2 losing in neocore benchmark but Tegra 2 smoking the other in actual game

    Has there been absolutely *anything* to indicate that this is in fact a “PlayStation Phone” and not just a new Sony Ericsson phone running on Android?

    @10, The Playstation app & the traditional controller buttons (look at the previous videos) it doesn’t prove anything & the grey control scheme looks fuckugly, so the only people who truley know are the people who are working with it.

    All i know is that as a gamer, this phone is on my list as a must by just for the controls alone.
