Samsung Wave’s Snapdragon 3D performance 4x better than “other” Snapdragon CPU’s?

The processor everyone wants right now is Snapdragon. With meager power requirements considering it’s 1+GHz speeds, it’s not hard to see why. So far, the more prominent phones to have received the speedy chip have been the WinMo powered Touch HD 2 and the N1. Both equally fast phones for sure. But Samsung’s recently announced “Wave” smartphone could put them all to shame, not necessarily raw CPU speeds considered, but buy graphics performance.

In the image above, you can see the CPU and GPU specs of the Samsung Wave. What’s odd is that they put a pretty fair amount of focus on the Snapdragon CPU, yet left out the little tidbit concerning the phone’s 89 million Triangle/s GPU performance. If you’re keep track, that’s considerably more than pretty much every other Snapdragon powered device today, with “the rest” averaging around 22 million triangles per second. The only other mobile chip that comes close is Nvidia’s Tegra 2 (85-90 million Triangles/s) which was also still fresh, announced at CES last month.

Why keep such an important spec on the down low when mobile phones are already taking after their desktop counterparts and realizing the CPU isn’t everything? It’s a combination of factors, though a big, beefy GPU does wonders for a gadget’s performance.

The only question is now, after seeing Bada in numerous videos and spec sheets galore, can it actually handle all of that hardware power?
