Overall, our thoughts and hopes on Cortex-A15 have been met, and we can't wait to grab one retail Nexus 10 and put it through its standard benchmarking paces...

Actually, a good file manager is a must have item. Also, if I want to get eBooks not on Google Play, I can do so with an Android device - not so with an Apple device...

As for virus threats, you are need to be more informed and more knowledgeable and less fearful - even Macs get viruses...

I can't think one reason I would want a file manager on a tablet. But if it's really that important to a person, he or she still can do it by jailbreaking the device. I am sure 99 of users do not know what a file manager is on neither IOS or Android.

Apple is always focusing on their graphic and no one can argue with that. That's why a lot of graphic designers are using Apple product such as iMac or Mac Pro. But I still like my Android phone and table just bc I like the OS better. Not saying which platform is better than the other, bc they both have their pros and cons, and we can never have a clear winner.

If (benchmarks == ANDROID_BEST) printf ("Very good benchmarks! Very good Android %s.", product);

If (benchmarks != ANDROID_BEST) printf "Benchmarks are stupid and worthless.");

there is something incredibly wrong with some of those tests. You have the adreno 225 blowing away the adreno 320 and mali400 in some tests. There is OBVIOUSLY an issue with driver support in those tests.

However, for the ones where everything is as it should be, the gap between "true A15" in the exynos 5 dual and wannabe krait A15 "equivilant" BS couldnt be any more clear.

The devices are running different software if you look at screenshot of the review tablets/phones released by Google, and they will be updated on 13th to final software. You speak as if your knowledgeable but just another American idiot, can't figure out its a software issue, remember the GS2 poor performance before it was released and the articles claiming Samsung dropped the ball, same here

dude, you're the idiot. he caught on to the inconsistencies, he just didn't happen to see the different versions of the tested devices' software and he speculated that it may be a driver issue which it is. how about cutting the guy a little bit of slack huh?

This only show GPU not the CPU so how is there a gap ?

you do realize there is a wide generational gap between the mali400/adreno225 and even a bit on the adreno 320 vs the mali600 and powerVR chips right?

and what do that to do with the A15 cpu chipset? the GPU are independence of the CPU chipset.

It´s not a problem with the drivers, Anand did a Glbenchmark test with ALL test included when he did the Nexus 4. It seems that the GPU got too hot and limited itself, so the tests were crap...
You can read the whole article and the why the results with the Adreno 320 in the Nexus 4 were so low here:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6425/google-nexus-4-and-nexus-10-review

Not to mention that he was using a non-final softeware version...

Anyone, surprised? This is Apple, after all. Unlike the numerous yellowish brands using Handroid, there is a lot of thinking put behind each one of their products.

Not so.

Fandroids wait for finalized software to be released in a week and a half, because there is evidence to suggest that this isn't fully optimized.

Even though 4.2 isn't even finished and N10 benchmarks will improve overtime, it's pretty clear that the new new iPad has the fastest GPU out there and will stay that way until the 8-core T604 comes out early next year. I think Samsung always knew the 4-core Mali will be overshadowed by the new new iPad, but they didn't expect it to come out this year - even before the Nexus 10! But that's the Surface effect to you, Windows 8 fut some fear into the competition, and looking at the expensive specs the iPad must be Apple's least profitable product for now, the N10 must cost a lot for Sammy too.

We win.

Profit is not important to the consumer - it is bottom line price. Take the Ipad mini vs the Nexus 7 - why would anyone want a mini ipad at 150.00 or more in price?

This forum epitomizes what Forest Gump was said....
"Stupid is as stupid does"

Benchmarks are not the only thing you go by, but it is nice to see a device you like score high...wait until they are officially sold in stores and everyday people start benchmarking their Nexus 10 before looking stupid and passing judgment.

Thought you were a troll giving English lessons in your free time, good thing I was wrong. PC GPU makers stopped using benchmarks years ago because its not indicative of performance, where some manufacturers were getting better scores but games ran smoother on lower scoring competition, which brings the question, what is the best indicator of performance? And that's day-to-day performance, actually using a technology/software/hardware

Yeah, I had seen that you knew your stuff, but many don't and put on their pompoms...lol

Day-to-day performance and personal preference...something Android gives everyone. I just love flashing a new ROM on my Nexus 7 - went from Clean ROM to Glazed Jelly 4.1.2. Runs great for me, as video playback performance is number one priority on my tablet and I found some things that improve it.

iOS fans: admit the nexus 10 is a great product especially for the price. Benchmarks don't determine real world use.
Android fans: admit the ipad 4 is a powerhouse as well, apple knows how to make their hardware and software work together perfectly.
Get what you like and don't be like a two year old going and telling people they picked the wrong tablet and insult their intelligence because of their choice. Is it really that big of a deal to you that a total stranger doesn't have your favorite tablet, so you feel the need to insult them?
