    Question CPU and CPU Speed of 7200 and 8700 series

    Advertisement



    Hi all.

    Does anyone have the CPU and CPU speed for the 7200 series BlackBerry, the 8700 series BlackBerry, and the 8100 series BlackBerry?

    Thanks.

    I don't but the 8700's and 8100 both have xscale intel processors. The menu and app loading is very noticable. We can probably compare using:

    The 7200 series processor is significantly slower.

    Well yes but I need the specs. The 8700 and later have the XScale and I think the models prior have the old Intel 386 but can't be sure. I know for sure that the very old RIM 950/850 and 957/857's had 386s.

    Anyone know CPU and clock speeds of the BB's?

    yes the 7200's use 32-bit Intel 386 processors. with a clock speed of arount 200MHz. I could be wrong.

    8700/8100 BB's use Intel PXA901 312 MHz clock speed

    The older BlackBerry 950 and 957 handhelds used Intel 80386 processors at clock speed of 25 MHz.

    Thanks Hayden. I've also read that the 7200 series used the ARM9 CPU and not the 386.

    I think the original Java devices still used the 386 but later models went to ARM. Can anyone confirm?

    What about the cdma based 8703e from sprint & verizon?

    I heard they use qualcomm cpu that is half the speed of the intel cpu in gsm 8700.

    And what about graphics processor? I did benchmarks on my sprint 8700e using benchmark magic and it shows that the grpahics performance is also about half that of the baseline (probably gsm-based) 8700.
