Preliminary benchmarks show the Nexus 10 graphics trailing behind the iPad 4

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...

They are both good in their own ways, especially the scores shown from A6X. But what I'm saying is all the speed is a little overkill on an OS that doesn't need much to operate. The A6X is good for GPU hog games, which I will admit, run like butter.

The new A15 isn't a slouch either. It's up there in benchmark scores and the real speed will be determined in real life performance.

Apple knocked it out of the park with A6X, and I'm waiting to see how chips next year are going to perform.

so if I am understanding your comment if they are running the same software they might get diffrent scores than what the current benchmark shows.I am not trying to be a wise acre just being curiouse.

Did you just make a reasonable statement on the Internet?

Get out. This is crazy. You can't admit that two competing companies have good products.

But the Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 have a remarkably good benchmarks, Considering that it's a FRACTION OF A PRICE OF AN IPAD3/4.

Benchmarks mean as much as the pre-vote in an eleciton. Easily manipulated and dont mean s**t. Its really sad that isheep and isheep websites like phonearena make them sound like they are fact and law. They are not. Companies have been manipulating benchmarks since benchmarks became the geek way of saying "I have a 9inch penis what size is yours."

Benchmarking is a clear indicator of performance. Some reviews of the Nexus 10 show some slight lag in some of the high graphic games. That's an indication of the GPU, processing power, as well as software performance of the OS. So to say that credible websites, such as Anandtech is manipulating data is a wrong statement to make. What else can you judge the performance by? I think what makes you upset is that the iPad still is a remarkable performer and you prefer that all of the benchmarks favor the Nexus 10 because its a new device that is supposed to be the iPad killer based on the price.

Still weaker than iPad 4 a lot.
Quite surprised abt fill test coz ARM and Samsung claimed it had 2.1 giga pixels, double than the benchmark result above.

Its not weaker, infact A15 is stronger than any swift cores, quad core kraits , or any other a9 variants. Some thing wrong is going on here. Maybe Anandtech might have a faulty unit or a pre-final build software.

You know that does are for GPU and not CPU right?

the GPU on the Exynos5 is stronger by far than everything up there except maybe the powerVR in the newest ipad if even that. I'd have to review the powerVR's specs again to be sure.
Regardless, the Mali 6xx GPU in the Exynos5 is more than twice as strong as the Mali400 in the SGS3/SGS2, and 20-30% stronger than even the quad krait's Adreno320 GPU.

The software is not properly optimized somewhere.

This needs to be revisited with retail hardware, not prerelease models.

Please fix the article since they tested the Egypt offscreen for the ipad as well.

At least gaming in HD. My type of gaming on a tablet would involve the archos gamepad and a bunch of emulators. Good times.

Considering this article (heck, this entire website) has everything to do with smartphones and tablets and absolutely nothing to do with PC gaming, I'm not quite sure what your comment is doing here.

Cool benchmarks, I suppose it can multitask, have a file manager and no longer tied to iTunes anymore? Oh wait...

It doesn't matter to me if the iPad 4 benchmarks show that it's 20x faster than any Android device, if it can't even do the basic stuff like those mentioned above, what's the point. It's like owning a Ferrari but never bringing it out of the 1st gear...

Yes, because since the dawn of time people have been DYING to get some good file managers on their tablets. It's the very first thing one thinks of when one considers the possibilities of a tablet. A kick ass file manager to enjoy for hours on end while hanging on the couch.

You can get all those things you want on a nice and shiney plastic Android tablet, including all the virus threats you will know and love coming from a Windows PC. Just install some anti-virus software on your tablet that eats up even more of your device's resources and you're good to go!

Enjoy your Android "Ferrari".
