I was wondering why the LG G2 scored lower in pretty much every single GPU benchmark compared to other phones with the Snapdragon 800? Is it something related to the GRAM?

I believe LG has made less memory available to the GPU than others, i.e. Sony. There maybe a mod at some point to change the balance, as this is probably a kernel thing.

since we are on the subject of kernels... if anyone cares to chime in... or point me to the right direction..

I did some experimenting today with stock and woots kernel..diff govs, temps, settings, etc..

The best speeds out of antutu I could get was 28500 with woots kernel... But yet I see everywhere with these phones getting 30-35000+...

What am I missing?

I ended up using interactive for my gov, bumped up the temps to 90/100 just to get 28000+

Using stock kernel and woots kernel using stock settings and on multiple roms I could never break 27500+ mostly got in the 22000 range.. I would also wait 15 minutes per benchmark to ensure my phone was cool...

Using carbon rom + woots kernel with interactive goc and temps bumped 90/100 can I only get 28000+...

kinda feeling bamboozeled! Did antutu put out an update that makes these achieve less benchmark numbers?

Huh are you running CM? if so that can be your problem... on my stock Telus G2 i get 35-36k antutu constantly. Any LG ROM gets me between 35-37k. With Woots kernel and stock frequencies for CPU and GPU (GPU overclock reduces benchmarks quite a lot) i still get between 35-37k for my phone

edit: just saw you are running carbon ROM... that is most likely the problem... I used another CM based ROM and could not go past 30k

I'm running my stock stock rom I've rooted it and removed a lot of bloatware. All other custom ROMs are similar IMHO. Same performance but with different themes and stuff.

So my girlfriend just got a brand new g2 verizon, put antutu on it first thing, no roms, no updates, nodda.. got a 33,000 score. I just scored 30500 on my carbon rom with woots b2 verizon kernel intelliplug on, 90/100 temps, interactive gov, 1500 read ahead,

Seems like we are getting closer!!

Was just reading up that antutu cant be trusted for the g2 for benchmarking.

Going to redo them with 3dmark on my gfs new stock phone and my rom'd phone and post up shortly..
