The Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet and Microsoft Surface 2 have a lot in common. One area that they are different is processor. The Surface 2 has a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 clocked at 1.7GHz, while the 2520 has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.2GHz. Today Qualcomm has come out to boast about how much better the 2520 is compared to the Surface 2.
“The performance on the 2520 is brilliant. It’s really at the next level. It’s not even really a contest compared to Surface 2. In every area, it’s much bigger, faster, and lower power.”
Strong words. The Snapdragon is clocked higher, and probably does perform better overall, but we’re not so sure the Surface 2 is such a slouch. In speed tests the Surface 2 has performed well, and remarkably better than the original Surface RT. It will be interesting to see the 2520 and Surface 2 compared. Do you think Qualcomm is right? Will their processor outperform the Tegra 4?
