Intel's Oak Trail chipset scores disappointing benchmark results
Friday at Computex, Intel displayed a prototype tablet made by Compal that had Intel Inside. The Intel 1.5GHz Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor with 1GB of RAM, was combined with a GPU based on the PowerVR SGX535. While it all sounds potent, the tablet's score on several benchmark tests was disappointing.

The guys at put the tablet prototype through several benchmark tests such as CaffeineMark, Linpack, and Quadrant. In those tests, the tablet with Intel Inside finished behind other Android flavored tablets like the  Acer A500 Iconia Tab, and the Samsung Galaxy 10.1. For example, on the Linpack test,Tegra 2 packing tablets scored about 36 MFLOPS compared to the 9.4 MFLOPS tally produced by the Intel powered prototype. On the other hand, the results of the SunSpider benchmark had the Intel powered prototype tablet in first place, ahead of the Asus Eee Transformer Pad, showing that at least, the Intel chips can process JavaScript quickly.

Overall, the test scores were not great news for a company trying to break into a market that already has two proven brands with Nvidia's Tegra 2 and Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors. And there is also TI's OMAP4 series to contend with. Intel has to make up a lot of ground for the Oak Trail to be a player in this market.
