Google Nexus 7 gets the benchmark treatment
Of course, other tablets are well capable of achieving better results, but don't forget that the Google Nexus 7 starts at $199. That said, you get a lot of bang for the buck.

Asus deserves huge props for this, as much as nVidia does.
nVidia was serious when they mentioned in 2005 that a big chunk of gaming would happen on mobile devices. Glad to see it's nVidia doing this first, but I expect AMD to be catching up eventually.

Not bad for $200 tab...just wondering why they didn't go for t33 cpu!

the Tegra III in the 7 is apart of Nvidia's Kai Platform to reduce the cost in manufacturing. the concessions are more than acceptable in this case so i tip my hat to Nvidia today.

You are 100% right about "Root".
I have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus right now, thanks to "Root"!

i was actually just paying attention to how well the Xyboard still stacks up. i can't wait for my Xyboard 8.2 to get JB. it's going to be a dream.
anyway the 7 still uses a Tegra III with GeForce Graphics. i never expected it to even topple an SGX543(MP2) but this does give us a little more insight as to how much Project Butter and Vsync are affecting performance other than seeing that real life performance demo @ 300fps. i imagined that the Browser would be the area to see the most improvement by these changes.

Are we looking at the same charts? It just can't get over the hardware performance ceiling and beat SGX543MP2

xD look at the GLBenchmark scores (benchmarks 3-6)
in terms of raw GPU Power the only thing that even beats the MP2 is the ARM Mali-400 @ 400MHz that's in the SIII. NOTHING even touches the MP4.

had a basic question..nexus 7 doesn't offer any expandable memory..what cost does it require to offer such functionality..i mean would be gr8 to have an expandable slot inbuilt n the customer can plug in d memory card..am sure it must have a cost angle behind the tradeoff so wanted to understand what is it?

being that it has Android 4.1 it'll support USB host so with the proper adapters you can use a USB Flash Drive or even an External Hard Drive with it.
