Early Benchmarks Show The Nexus 7's Speed
« on: June 28, 2012, 08:43:37 AM »

So just how fast is the $199 Nexus 7, especially when compared against two other recent tablets, one 7 inch, the other 10.1 that both cost twice as much or more?   Well the answer...pretty fast!   Engadget did some preliminary testing that put the Nexus 7 against two rivals that a consumer might consider.  The first, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, is one of the few tablets of similar size to have a 1280 x 800 resolution screen but runs on a 1.4 GHz dual core exynos processor.   The second, the Transformer Pad Infinity has a 1.7 GHzTegra 3 quad core processor but features a higher resolution 1920 x 1200 display


As you can see in the results above the Nexus 7 holds its own, handily drubbing the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in every category. (and this a tablet more than twice its price) while when looking at the Transformer Pad Infinity in performance mode it still manages to top it in three of 4 categories, most likely because while both are running on Tegra 3 chips, the Nexus 7 has a lower pixel count to push.   Now keep in mind the Galaxy Tab 7.7 typically costs over $500...and the Transformer Pad Infinity is an equally hefty $600 (although it does boast more memory).   So at first blush it really does seem that for $199 you're getting quite a piece of hardware with the Nexus 7.  What are your thoughts?   What do you think of the 'bang for the buck' aspect of the Nexus 7?

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 does not have a chance for one being that it is crippled with only 2 cores.  Please consider its handycap.  ;) The neXus 7 is blasting it away with 17 cores after all. The Transformer Pad Infinity does hold its own of course as it in the same 17 core weight class and would be a good option if one needs the larger screen to lug around, it does have its place.  ???
This is the droid I have been looking for.
