Xolo X500 benchmarks – Intel Atom Z2420 CPU and Power VR SGX540 GPU

Xolo X500 was launched in India last week. Here we have the benchmarks of the device. The Xolo X500 is powered by a 1.2 GHz Intel Atom Lexington Z2420 single-core processor with Power VR SGX540 GPU. The Xolo X900 that was launched in India last year is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2460 Medfield processor, but the new CPU is aimed at low-cost Android smartphones. Even the new chip has Intel’s hyper threading technology that offers better mutitasking capabilities. Let us see how it stacks up with the other Android smartphones.

Quadrant Benchmark

The Xolo X500 is just behind the Medfield-powered X900 in the Quadrant benchmark.

AnTuTu Benchmark v2.9

The Xolo X500 tops the AnTuTu benchmark.

AnTuTu Benchmark v3.0

It scores impressive 12859 points in the AnTuTu 3.0 Benchmark.

Vellamo 1.0

The Xolo X500 tops in the Vellamo 1.0 browser benchmark too. Since the X900 was taken while it was running Android 2.3, the scores were lower than the X500.

Vellamo 2.0 HTML5 and Metal


It scores 1168 points in the HTML5 web browser test and 421 points in the metal CPU subsystem performance.

Linpack Single Thread

The Xolo X500 is just behind the X900 in the Linpack single thread benchmark.

Linpack Multi-Thread

The score of the X500 is almost similar to the Xperia U in the Linpack Multi-thread benchmark.

NenaMark 2

Even though the CPU uses the same Power VR SGX540 GPU as the Xolo X900, due to the lower screen resolution it achieves 60 fps on NenaMark.

GLBenchmark 2.5 Egypt HD (1080p) (On screen)

Again the X500 tops with 18 fps in the GPU benchmark due to the lower screen resolution.
