No 1GHz CPU for the Samsung Omnia HD after all

Last week, when Samsung launched the Omnia HD i8910 in India, the smartphone’s specs sheet showed that a 1GHz processor is included in the device.

Well, it turns out that this is not true.

Apparently, the folks over at Samsung India thought that it would be a good marketing idea to add the 420MHz speed of the handset’s DSP (sound processing chip) to the 600MHz speed of the ARM Cortex-A8 CPU.

And while that does add up to 1GHz, it does not give the Omnia HD the ability to process data at this speed – it’s still a 600MHz CPU that it relies on.

So Samsung has yet to come with a phone that features a 1GHz processor – well, the Samsung Jet (800MHz) is almost there.

    The 600 Mhz Cortex A8 will actually be faster than the 800 Mhz ARM11 powering the Jet. The cortex A8 has an IPC thats roughly 2x that of the ARM11. It has a deeper pipeline, better branch prediction, speculative execution etc. So the Omnia HD can be expected to perform better than the Jet. Not to mention the dedicated 3D hardware which is absent on the Jet but present in the Omnia HD. So Mhz is just not everything.
