Hey guys i've just been googling around about which processor is better and i got alot of mixed performance and benchmark scores.some won by snap 800 and some won by tegra 4.My friend has a note 10.1 2014 and is telling me his tablet with snap 800 and adreno 330 is the king at the moment.i know a few programs that let me stream games too so i might just add a controller to stream or should i get a shield.since pc streaming is covered.which would do better in games and 'raw performance' maybe in some benchmarks.i've already googled around and there are too many mix performance that i dont know which one is true.
(I already have a 760 in my pc)

It is :) The Nexus 5 is a beast, hope you're having fun. I think the Tegra 4 CPU is a bit stronger as well while the GPU is a bit weaker than the S800.

The Tegra Shield would do better in some games such as Dead Trigger 2 and other Tegra optimized games which are found in the Tegrazone, another advantage is PC streaming feature which is what most people get it for. Also benchmarks don't tell you that much, for example a nexus 5 scores less than a samsung galaxy note 3, but the Nexus's UI speed is butter smooth compared to the frequent lags on the Samsung devices, I'm not having a go at Samsung but I still feel the need to optimize the UI a bit more. With gaming however they're pretty much equal but I think the Tegra 4 would out perform the Snapdragon 800 in the Tegra zone games otherwise they are equal (I'm talking about the Tegra 4 on the Nvidia shield, tablets may yield different results), also the Nvidia shield simply for the fact you can stream games from your PC natively and probably with less hassle. You could also take screen sizes into account, the Note 10.1 2014 has a 2560x1600 display, which is gorgeous. The Shield has a 720p which still looks nice.

Meh, they are roughly equal, but the Tegra 4 has Tegrazone and far better games to play. Snapdragon was planning their snapdragon studio, it never happened....... I bought my Moga Hero Power for my Nexus 5 for no reason I guess.

Yeah I know, both chips are really good, so I decided to get the other factors into account like resolution and screen size to help make a choice.

The Snapdragon 800 is probably a bit more powerful gpuwise, I bought the Nexus 5.
