NVIDIA's rumored Tegra 4-powered tablet visits AnTuTu, blows the 2013 Nexus out of the water

NVIDIA's rumored Tegra 4-powered tablet visits AnTuTu, blows the 2013 Nexus out of the water

It was just this past Friday that we brought your attention to NVIDIA's snazzy-looking tablet, said to sport a 7-inch diagonal and take advantage of the company's latest in-house effort – the Tegra 4 SoC, clocked at 1.8GHz.

We are also expecting the tablet to:


  • come running a 1280x736 resolution
  • feature a 5MP rear shooter
  • come with Stylus, microHDMI and microSD support
We're adding a new piece to the puzzle that has been unearthed yesterday, and this may be the first real indication of how NVIDIA's tablet performs in the real world. An alleged AnTuTu benchmark test puts the score at 27,643 – an impressive feat, and a fair amount better than the 2013 Nexus 7, which scored just short of the 20,000 mark. That being said, do keep in mind that the pixel count on Google's latest is significantly higher, which is quite possibly the reason for most of the difference.

Wrapping this up, we remind you that we're also told that despite its 'Premium' moniker, this is a less fancy version of another, supposedly truly premium tablet that NVIDIA has in the works. While we have no information on that one, it is easy to imagine that NVIDIA will probably have the good sense to bump the display to at least 1080p, considering the stiff competition. Whether we're to see a rival duo similar to the Nexus 7 and the upcoming Nexus 10 remains to be seen.

Interesting... One of the best manufacturer is Nvidia, coming from the PC world. the Shield is top, and if this tablet is correctly priced (200$ about) the investment is great. Hope to see one day a Tegra SOC + AMD/Intel x86 CPU, one step further to have a good PC-like tablet under your fingers .

Sorry, but just look at SHIELD, this tablet won't be for less than $250.

hence the low res on this device so they can keep the price down (maybe). for what shield intend to do people said the device was expensive but in reality you will not find much faster device with such pricing currently.

Manufacturer? Nvidia doesn't manufacture their SOC/GPU

"NVIDIA's rumored Tegra 4-powered tablet visits AnTuTu, blows the 2013 Nexus out of the water" with heat :) if (Nvidia ==heat) { restart(); instability(); hang(); uncomfortableToHold(); }; else { printf("error: device is not hot") };

If you have used your hard-earned money to buy a Tegra 3 phone, you will understand what I am trying to say here.

Semicolon after braces? End even in the middle of if-else?! What a goddamn language! ;-)

So the S800 and Exynos 5410 is faster than the T4. Looks like NVIDIA failed again to produce the fastest chip.

this probably has the tegra 40L low power edition

isn't that T4 is faster than exynos 5410?

I tried the Toshiba Excite Pro with the TEgra 4 and man did that device over heat. Not sure if it is a hardware thing from Toshiba or from the Tegra 4. Disappointed in that.

Might be a hardware thing (either a bad chip or Toshiba). Engadget said with there hands on with the Tegra 4 (earlier this year) that it didn't get very hot.

Don't act like you don't know...shield comes with big heat sink installed...tegra4 has heat issues.

could be toshiba issue. HP Slate X2 also based on T4 but so far i haven't heard or find about the tablet being overheated. the shield were using fan but the device also the fastest T4 device which clocked at 1.9Ghz. also the inclusion of fan inside the device was most likely to keep the device cool and comfortable to hold for long hour usage.

Great, the back looks solid though.

And tegra compares 1080p to 720 that's very dumb . If nexus uses 720p the score will be near 26000 nexus 7s screen is 1200p compare to 720

720p is last year's specs. I doubt someone doing a side-by-side compare will choose a 720p display over a 1080p one, everything else being essentially the same.

The Exynos 5420 / Mali-T628 Nexus 10.2 will laugh all over this.

Yeah because the new exynos' minor update will double its performance? (Compare: this years exynos scores around 28-30,000...

Most likely 1280x800 with on screen keys as most tablets have.
