Xperia arc S Vellamo BenchmarkThe Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S is due to launch shortly and will boast a 1.4GHz processor over its 1GHz predecessor. Slashgear recently ran some benchmark tests that shows whilst in certain scenarios the arc S may be visibly faster, in others it is likely to feel no different to the original.

They ran the Quadrant benchmark on the Xperia arc S scoring 1542, this is just a 9% increase over our resident stock Xperia arc (with no overclocking). The Vellamo benchmark proved much different though with Slashgear reporting a score of 998, obliterating our score of 679 i.e. a 47% increase. It goes to show that current Xperia arc owners have absolutely no need to upgrade (especially as there are ways to overclock the handset yourself), however for newcomers it is likely to be a nice boost and helps to compete against those dual-core devices on the market.
