Snapdragon S4 Thermal Comparison and Butter Benchmark

Today’s high-end smartphones and tablets are capable of doing many intensive computing tasks, such as 3D gaming, shooting HD video, and editing photos. The more demanding these tasks, the harder the powerful processor works. That can result in excessive heat, which reduces high performance and reliability. Over time, excessive heat can also be damaging to components, especially the battery. The hotter a device gets, the more it degrades battery capacity. To combat this, Snapdragon S4 processors are specially designed to keep their cool. Watch this video to see a Snapdragon thermal comparison and our new Butter Benchmark.
