Google The past few weeks the entire internet has been going bonkers over the Google phone, yet another in a long line of Android phones that has everyone's knickers in twists. Up until now we had to go by small photos and Twitter messages from Google employees, but now we have full specifications, a hands-on, and video.

After some digging I found that the Snapdragon uses the AMD z430, the last chip that AMD/ATI mobile graphics division made before it got bought by Qualcomm.

As for performance it's kinda difficult to know. I can't find a lot information about the z430 and there aren't any concrete benchmarks out there. The only thing I could find is that according to Qualcomm's site the Snapdragon 8250 has up to 22M triangles/sec and according to Wikipedia the 3GS's PowerVR SGX535 has up to 28M polys/sec. Of course comparing just polys/sec doesn't say everything, but it's the only thing we have.
