Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite benchmark confirms its low-end status, GC1000 GPU
The Tab 3 Lite was benchmarked at GFXBench, this allowing us to see that the tablet features Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 7-inch display with 600 x 1024 pixels, 1.2GHz processor - likely dual-core - and a GC1000 GPU (this one is made by a company called Vivante, and is also used on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 that was released in 2013).
The graphic performance of the Tab 3 Lite is low, and it seems that the new tablet is being outperformed by smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Premier, which features a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP processor with a PowerVR SGX544 GPU.
Of course, at the expected retail price of $129, the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite could still be a steal. The tablet already visited the FCC (in December), so an official announcement may come very soon. We’re not sure if Samsung will keep the Tab 3 Lite name for the new device, as it seems that two other rumored Lite Galaxies will end up being called Galaxy Grand Neo and Galaxy Note 3 Neo. So maybe in the end we’ll have a Galaxy Tab 3 Neo, or, simply, Galaxy Tab Neo? We'll let you know!

Exactly. This actually is same thing as old one. And I've tried it and it's seriously not good tablet. Ok, feels and looks decent, and software is mostly usable, but it lags, strutters, is frustratingly slow. Display has very low PPI and it really isn't enjoyable.

Being worse than the Tab 3 and being cheaper?
