ASUS ZenFone 2 scores 50000+ on AnTuTu


As we near the regional launch time of the ASUS ZenFone 2, it remains the only smartphone to pack in 4GB of RAM. While we have yet to see any benchmarks of the 4GB RAM ASUS ZenFone 2, the 2GB RAM version was recently benchmarked with a massive score of 50401 on AnTuTu. This is higher than previous powerhouse Android smartphones but not as high as an NVIDIA Tegra X1 powered device. The benchmark confirmed tech specs like a 64-bit 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor and PowerVR Rogue G6430 graphics but showed that this could be the 5-inch display version as it only had 2GB of RAM and a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. There are versions with a 5.5-inch display and 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution along with other tech specs like a 13MP rear camera. Malaysia pricing and release dates have not been confirmed yet but pre-orders have revealed that the 2GB RAM version could go for $299 (RM1076) while the 4GB RAM version may be offered at $439 (RM1580). The 5-inch version is expected to go for $199 (RM717) which should make quite a few users happier due to the very high AnTuTu score above. We expect the larger and higher resolution display to weigh down the AnTuTu score somewhat but the 4GB RAM should offer a bit more of a boost than the 2GB version. The ASUS ZenFone 2 is expected to arrive sometime in March or April 2015.
