ARCHOS 97 Titanium HD vs Onda V 972

Citadel demo appears to be a good opportunity to do some real-world benchmarks on the ARCHOS 97 Titanium, checking how it renders HD (2048×1440) animations compared to an Onda V 972 quad-core CPU tablet.

The benchmarks below were executed with the same settings on both machines (High quality rendering and HD mode 2048×1440 resolution scaled at 100%)

Benchmark results of 42.8 FPS on the Onda V972 vs 25.2 FPS on the ARCHOS 97 Titanium HD, show the limits of the “old” Rockchip RK3066 / Mali 400 GPU (ARCHOS Titanium) over the Boxchip Allwinner A31 quad-core processor on the Onda V972.
