HTC Leo / HD2 benchmarks

htcleopl2
Looks like B3ler3fonte (who posted a couple pictures a few days ago) over at XDA hust posted the first ever benchmarks of the HTC LEO / HD2 ( T8585 ). Let’s just say that this thing is a beast compared to the MSM72XX device thanks to the Qualcomm 8250B SnapDragon chipset.

Unfortunitaly the drivers only support OpenGL ES 1.1 at this time (like on the Toshiba TG01)
OpenGL ES 1.X results:
