byd g5

Car maker, BYD, shows of it’s cars performance figures with an Antutu benchmark!

BYD (Build Your Dreams), is a Chinese car maker who is no stranger to mobile tech. The company are actually one of the largest producers of rechargeable battery cells for mobile device, electric vehicles and have even been known to make the odd tablet of phone.

These day’s BYD focus on their cars, but still like to load them up with the latest technology. The BYD G5 is a family soon that the company recently released in China with a built-in multimedia center. Compared to modern smartphones the hardware is an odd mix with 1Ghz quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, WIFi and build in apps such as QQ.

Interestingly BYD have let journalists run Antutu on the in car system resulting in a rather lack luster 15,244 points. Well behind that of even a cheap phone, but enough of navigation and playing back media.

As for the car specs, the BYD G5 packs a 1.5L Turbo charged engine with 6 speed gearbox and dual clutch. The car is on sale in China now at 100,000 Yuan.

        Nope but I can pair it with my car that already has a touchscreen and bluetooth. No need to spend an additional $17000 on a crappy car.

    That is because car industry uses Freescale i.MX6Q. That quad core SoC is in 90% new cars with any kind of multimedia features.
    Reason for that are:
    * cars don’t sell in 1M+ like phones
    * doing software is not thers main focus
    * Freescale has completely open-source kernel and whole SDK to developers
    * that SoC is more than enough for cars needs. Actually, when software is optimized, it is very fast
    Some of above is based on my experience too, as I use that SoC for other projects in my company.
