Quad-core Asus Transformer Prime rages through the benchmarks

Quad-core Asus Transformer Prime rages through the benchmarks
The Asus Transformer Prime promises something no other tablet has so far – a quad-core processor. What this means is even more horsepower for handling the most intensive tasks and visual challenges thrown in the way of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip inside. We knew it was powerful, but we didn't know just how much and now we have it. 

Not in real-life performance, but in benchmark numbers. The score leaked on popular benchmarking app AnTuTu and easily trumps all other devices on the market including heavyweights like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Now, the actual AnTuTu score stands at around the 10,000 mark for the 1.4GHz Transformer Prime, but reportedly if overclocked to 1.6GHz the slate nears the 13,000 mark barrier. Now, this might not be of much use without optimized software for it, so we're hoping by the time the tablet launches. The Asus Transformer Primer release date is likely to be unveiled at its official announcement on November 9th.

umm. because its not availible yet?? lololol. I'd assume its going to tablets first because of a limited availability of the chips. Tablets dont sell as much as phones do. They are probably building up chip stock in the background for the next month or 2 so they can sell them to manufacturers. Cant wait. Gimmie one of these chips, with a 720p SA screen between around 4.3-5 inches (with no buttons and ICS of course), a 12mpx camera with a Carl Ziess lens and big fat aperture and 1.5-2gigs of dual channel ram... and a huuge 2500mAh+ battery to run it all. I think I might actually be happy for like 10 minutes with that.. lololol

O my this is insane. I think this is a fake though my comp only benchmarks at 10000 and i have a quad core core i7 clocked higher then this tablet. If its true omg talk about overkill lol. Impressive.

...you do know that pc and tablet have entirely different benchmarks right?

14. remixfa

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

lol :) This is also a different type of chip and completely different set up than a PC. Android is also a much lighter system on resources than Windows 7 or vista. :) oh.. and yea, the benchmarks are not equatable.. :")

Wow, however it is overkill how is the battery when this much power inder the hood ?

According to Asus' CEO the battery life is 14.5 hours.

no, because it can shut down all 4 cores and use the lil-core.

Question......which Galaxy S2 was tested? Also, no fair until galaxy gets ICS. :)

If it were the Hercules it probably would have been notated that way. I'd say its a safe bet to assume that its the traditional Exynos SGS2. A good idea for performance is to look at that galaxy nexus and how it slightly overpowers the SGS2 even though its actually a less powerful chip. The omap chips normally get around 2400-2600 on the quadrant test. Thats a pretty significant improvement because of the dual core optimization in ICS. Cant wait to see what samsung's beast gets with ICS.
