A Samsung tablet with 4GB of RAM and a high-end, 14nm Intel processor spotted on Geekbench
An unknown Samsung tablet, codenamed CHOPIN-LTE, has been spotted in Geekbench's database of devices that have gone through its benchmark tests.
A total of 4 passes through the software were recorded in the span of just 24 hours, starting on May 6th, giving Geekbench enough data about the device for us to start drawing some conclusions. Perhaps the most important one at this point is that the mysterious tablet will be positioned as a high-end product, considering the trail of rather impressive hardware specs.
So far, we only know that the CHOPIN-LTE runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and is powered by the whopping 4 gigs of RAM and one of the 2015 crop of Intel processors for tablets — the Atom x5-Z8500. It's a new chip, built on the 14nm Cherry Trail platform, with four cores clocked at 2.24GHz and an 8th generation Intel graphics on board. The score the configuration managed is 1005 points in the single-core test and 3425 points in the multi-core test, suggesting performance similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Of course, given how the resolution of the slate in question remains unknown, it could be that the device actually performs even better, but is anchored by an even more monstrous pixel resolution.
Could this be the oft-rumored Galaxy Tab S2, which is said to be powered by an unspecified, 64-bit processor?
