Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use. We've seen, time and again, some high-scoring phones output questionable performance. In this regard, Samsung is one of the usual culprits, and despite having opted for some of the highest spec configurations on each and every one of their flagships, many of them still managed to lag.

CyanogenMod cLock Available for All 4.2+ Devices
If you’re a former CyanogenMod user whose ORD has resulted in a move to another ROM or if you’ve simply changed devices to one without officially supported CM builds, you’re in for a treat.
Undoubtedly, one of the most visually striking parts of CyangoenMod as of late is its cLock home and lock screen widget. For those with an eye for the visually pleasing, cLock offers a clean and information-rich interface. And for those who like to stand out, it’s quite customizable in both color and content. Sadly though, changing ROMs generally means doing away with ROM-specific perks.
Thankfully, this is no longer a problem, as XDA Recognized Developer (and CyanogenMod UI and Experience Team Developer) DvTonder has posted the home and lock screen widget for use with any device running Android 4.2 or greater. Developed primarily by DvTonder, with help from a host of other developers, the widget packs time, weather, and calendar event information in a streamlined and configurable package. And though it’s been available in standalone form since March of this year, the developer keeps posting revisions and updates, with the most recent bringing some small UI changes, bugfixes, and new translations.
Head over to the original thread to enjoy one of the cleanest and most configurable home and lock screen clock widgets available.
