Default ICS Roms Benchmarked

Used Quadrant Standard Edition 2.0
This was done on 3-28-2012. Pretty much all the ROMs have had new releases since then. So these benchmarks do not accurately reflect the current performance of the ROMs.
Full wipe procedure done before each flash.
Coldboot done for each ROM before running Quadrant. Not doing coldboot resulted in lower I/O score in some cases.

Testing was done using the default settings and kernel of the ROM. No kernels were flashed separately.
Overclock was tested only if the ROM and its default kernel supported it, using the maximum frequency allowed in the ROM's settings + force GPU rendering set to enable in developer settings.













Android 4.0.4 ROM

What the hell is going on with the 2D scores? Why is stock so far ahead of the others?

I dont have any fancy diagrams or tables like you but...
I ran quadrant on eos build 12 and got a total of 3.5k (average, 3 runs).

Settings: CPU at 1.4Ghz, no forced gpu rendering.
Breakdown:
cpu: 6200
memory: 3200
I/O: 6000
2D: 110
3D: 1800

Interesting though that stock ICS performs that well compared to the other roms.
So in raw performance there isnt much difference between custom and stock rom, until you start tuning the cpu.

Enabling "force GPU rendering" on other ROMs increases the 2d scores to around 400.

So is that stock rom doing that by default or what?

Probably.
I tested it again. Stock ROM is giving those scores without force gpu rendering

Funny thing, stock is way better with 2d rendering, EOS and CM9 are faster in I/O...

Yup, the reason EOS and CM9 have such high scores is because of the I/O. I wonder how perceivable the difference is to an average user.

Team EOS's has a tiny FPS lag when scrolling home screens despite its high score.
