Asus Eee Pad Slider benchmark tests
Very much a first-generation Honeycomb tablet, the Asus Eee Pad Slider is powered by none other than a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Relatively speaking, it’s sufficient enough to carry most basic tasks with minimal effort, but in testing out its full capacity, we do notice the usual instances of choppiness and sluggishness with its performance. With static wallpapers, the Eee Pad Slider offers a decent amount of responsiveness while navigating across its homescreen – though, there are some sprinklings of slowdown. However, it’s never to the point stagnant, but at times, such as in the case of using live wallpapers, it becomes increasingly prevalent.
Rightfully so, the benchmark scores put up the tablet are indicative of any other dual-core CPU packing tablet we’ve seen in the past running on Honeycomb. For starters, we’re able to get scores between 1,500 and 1,900 on Quadrant, which are hardly eye-catching numbers in this day and age. Nevertheless, the scores are justified marks in keeping it in good light with its rivals. Moreover, the AnTutu benchmark test graces it with an overall score of 5,099, which is yet again something that’s not particularly earth shattering. Indeed, it meets the results established by other dual-core wielding devices out there, like the LG Optimus 2x and HTC EVO 3D, but it’s nowhere close to the numbers delivered by class leading devices such as the Asus Transformer Prime, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and Galaxy S II.

It's 2012. Please stop using Quadrant. It is almost useless at giving an accurate representation.

Agreed. A couple years ago the EPA changed their test for estimating fuel economy in cars because manufacturers began to make cars able to perform better in the tests than in real-life driving. Phone manufacturers seem to be doing the same thing.

it runs at around the same price as the original transformer and keyboard combo on sale? i dont get it whats the point

It costs a bit less than buying the keyboard dock with the Transformer. And in my personal experience, the built-in keyboard is much more responsive than the separate keyboard dock.

its a +/- experience. The built in keyboard is way more convenient than having to remember to bring the Add on, and its more cost effective. However, the add on brings with it a second battery and more connection options... and i believe a slightly bigger keyboard. So like anything, its pick what you want more. Price and convenience, or extended battery and options.
