Despite the notably high resolution, Krait still managed to push out quite a decent score of 54.90 in NenaMark 2. When comparing it with a Galaxy S II running the same benchmark with its lower 800 x 480 display and Mali-400 GPU, this achieved just 46.2.

It should be noted however that the Qualcomm reference unit was using Android 4.03 which could possibly have contributed to the higher score. Nonetheless, it is clear we are well on the way to seeing console-quality gaming on our handheld devices!
