The new Nexus 7 (officially listed as 2013 Nexus 7) brings a lot to the table. It is not just the first ‘Retina’ compact tablet…

Wow... and I've read comments saying that this wasn't a significant update... twice as fast with twice the ram and so many new hardware features (full hd, stereo speakers, hdmi, wireless charge), still at an affordable price...

Normal S4 pro quad-core has only about or a little bit over 2000 in Geekbench. Here is a problem about the Nexus 7 II running 4.3 while the Nexus 7 running 4.2.2

I just noticed that too. This doesn't seem too legit.

remember that this S4 pro has krait 300 like the snapdragon 600 not krait 200 which you normally associate with the S4 pro

When the OEMs gives out spec's like a retina display, you need to think about battery life.

If you are going to get a battery sucking display (at FULL BRIGHTNESS), you have to start thinking about the trade-offs. I hope the new device comes with better battery technology and a larger mAh battery.

What are you talking about? More pixels only put strain on the GPU. Who is talking about using full brightness on the new tablet? And how is this different from using any other device with simmilar screen size on full brightness?

What's it actually like to USE those? Is it enjoyable to use with consistantly smooth animations and touch responsiveness? These benchmarks just perpetuate the myth that these numbers are actually remotely relevent to the user experience!

User experience is about the same I guess. SInce JB came even dual-cores (and 1.4GHZ single cores) can do smooth UI navigation.

BUT Need for speed lags on my Nexus 7. So does Dungeon Hunters. Even Little commander lags at some point (when there are a lot of anti-missiles). It's very playable yes, and it doesn't hamper my enjoyment. But a boost in performance is definitely welcome.

Truth is these benchmarks ARE an indication of performance. Don't look at it as this-device-is-better-than-that-device but rather see the general trend of the benchmarks and use it for your own analysis. Like how a certain device is faster in loading pages while another one is faster in gaming (GPU vs CPU).

In this article's case, see how the new nexus 7 is faster than the old one (in terms of performance). Definitely it has better GPU and CPU (faster computations and loading times) and that's something you'll notice in everyday use. It doesn't matter how much faster, the point is it's faster.

I'm sure the old nexus 7 is running android 4.2.2 while the new one is running 4.3, IT'S NOT FAIR !!
This test must be repeated after updating the older nexus 7 to android 4.3!

The memory score is higher than any mobile device I've seen tested with Geekbench. It's even better than the A6X on the memory score which is doubly impressive.

Read number five above. Wherever they identify the processor it lists the new Nexus 7 with the Tegra three.

The new Nexus 7 is probably not the first "compact tablet" with retina dsplay.

People who have access to the internet can check out the tablet markethttp://www.alibaba.com/showroom/retina-display-tablet.html

I have been saying this for a long time, because android OS is "free", android devices are just commodities. If you have a few minutes to kill, you can check out all the Apple, Samsung and other name-branded OEM tablet knock-offs. Once Apple designs a new tablet, a "Chinese" knock-off is on the market within weeks (running on android no less) for a lot less. The speed at which these "Chinese" knockoffs hit the marketplace is just astounding. It's no that surprise if Apple used a 9.7" screen, the knockoffs have a 9.7" screen. If Apple came out with a 7.9" screen for the mini, the knockoffs with have a 7.9" screen as well.

Retina display is just a marketing term, so that link is about worthless. Do any of those tablets have the ppi as high as the new N7? When you find one that does, then you'll have a point.
