When the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet first appeared, all it had going for it seemed to be an Exynos 5 Octa chipset with a 2K (2560 x 1600 pixel) display. Recently, what appears to be benchmarks of the device under a slightly different model name (the SM-P905V instead of the previous SM-P905) it is also packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and processor. This was proven when the device got an AnTuTu score of 35901 which is so far, the realm of Snapdragon 800 powered devices. In a comparison between the Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) which uses the Exynos 5420 chipset the rumoured Note 12.2 showed marked differences in performance, again proving that it isn't using Exynos 5 hardware. We're quite impressed with the overall AnTuTu score of 35901 though, as it means there probably won't be any lag despite the onboard 2K display. No news on pricing or Malaysia release dates but we'll keep you posted.

While Malaysia only has the one Snapdragon 800 powered Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet, Samsung actually came out with two versions. One was powered by the 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and processor while the other is running the 1.9GHz Samsung Exynos 5 Octa. Both managed to breach the 34000 limit on AnTuTu. Surprisingly, while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 powered N9005 beat out the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa powered N9000, this was mainly due to the better graphics performance of the Adreno 330 GPU compared to the Mali GPU. In terms of multi-tasking and other processing tests, the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa did surprisingly better. Check out the video in the article for more information.
