The benchmark scores of a possible quad-core Toshiba tablet

Looks like Toshiba has a quad-core tablet coming, powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3. Using the code name of "toshiba06", a common early code name for Toshiba tablets, the device was put through the paces at the AnTuTu benchmark web site. The results showed a processor clock speed of 1.4GHz and like the rest of the benchmark test, produced results similar to that scored by the Asus Transformer Prime. Considering that the latter is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3, it is possible that the Toshiba unit has the same processor under the hood.

Outside of the 1.4GHz processor speed and the similarity of results with the Asus Transformer Prime, there is nothing definitive that shows whether or not the unnamed and unannounced Toshiba tablet will have the Tegra 3 inside. But you have to believe that other quad-core tablets are being readied for launch in 2012; based on the benchmark results, it looks like this new Toshiba tablet will be one of them.

hopefully someone will release a well executed, full windows tablet that can actually do stuff rather than just bulls**t around downloading apps and pretending like its an actual tool

This is just the start of the quad core tablets. I think we will begin to see better offering of quad core tablets later in the year. This will be when apps take more advantage of the 2 core options not least the 4 core options. Furthermore, as far as types of processors go, we have all kinds coming out this year. Personally, I might wait for the step variation in the current quad core tegra due to it being a nice tech to carry at least for 2 years after purchase.
