It was really hard to find a competitive device so I finally choose my 4 years old mac book pro to have a good point of comparison.
Comparing cell phone and laptop was just unbelievable 3 years ago. But now we can! Again Moore’s law is still true.
I wanted to try out some WebGL demo, I tried few chrome experiment and I was surprised to see them working smoothly.
So I decided to compare with my Laptop and sometime the FPS was faster on the SnapDragon 800 device.
If anyone is interested I stored all the figures here and the video on Youtube.
- No other application running in the background
- Same navigator
- Wait 10 seconds after the animation start
- Read the most seen mean FPS (with the birds, the FPS vary a lot when there are no birds it’s around 50 FPS when there are a lot of birds it’s more near 18 FPS but as the FPS displayed is a mean FPS for a specific amount of time, I use the one I see the most often)
For the threejs car there is no FPS displayed but you can see how smooth it is in the video
