Sony Tablet S benchmark tests

Sony Tablet S benchmark tests
Sony’s foray into the tablet world has begun as the Sony Tablet S is finally available for purchase, but much unlike some of the Honeycomb tablets before it, the one distinctive feature it has to offer is the fact that it’s a PlayStation Certified device. Granted that it might not require too much processing power to run original PlayStation content, it’s still hitting the mark with its rivals with its 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra2 processor.

From the short time we’ve been playing around with the Honeycomb 3.1 flavored tablet, we’re greeted with the usual fluid movement with its homescreen – even in portrait where we’re normally accustomed to seeing some choppy executions. Running their customized interface, it does add some visual flare to the usual looking stock Honeycomb experience. In short, the real-world usage is undoubtedly more than tolerable to our liking, but we need to spend a little more time to make a final judgment.

Even with its modernized dual-core processor, the Sony Tablet S unfortunately doesn’t put up spectacular benchmark scores with Quadrant – and in fact, it’s only able to get results ranging from 1,566 and 1,734. Sadly, it’s actually one of the lowest scores we’ve seen with a Honeycomb tablet thus far and pales in comparison to the numbers offered by the Motorola XOOM and HTC Jetstream. Conversely, the AnTutu benchmark overall score is surprisingly better than the competition at 4,711, which is well above the mark we’ve seen so far with Honeycomb devices.

Again, benchmark scores are one thing, but they don’t necessarily portray the real life performance of the tablet. So in the meantime, we’ll be getting more comfy with the Sony Tablet S to see how it’s able to perform throughout various tests and tasks.

Unfortunately, they're all limited to the Tegra II CPU, which really doesn't perform that brilliant at tablet resolutions (which is farked really).. Maybe when Kal-el hits the shelves, we'll get some decent performance in comparison to the iPad 2... On the flip side, the Samsung 7.7 tab is running a speed bumped Exynos CPU - and its about the most fluid UI looking tab out there, but who knows when it'll actually hit the shelves......

I'm not buying another Sony product. I've been burnt by Sony too many times. The PlayStation 3's are all doomed to fail eventually. Do an Internet search on YLOD (Yellow light of death) on the PS3. I want people to see how Sony takes care of their customers who have helped them become the juggernaut that they are. PlayStation Network was hacked not once but twice. Not a big deal for me since I didn't have my credit card info up there. Sony offered two free games which was nice, but I didn't get a chance to download in a timely manner and the offer expired (which was never written anywhere). I called customer service and asked to get my two free games now that I bought a new PS3 after my old one YLOD on me. They still wouldn't unlock or send me any of the offered games. Another biggie is the SWG MMORPG failure. Always fun to Google that one, and read about how Sony listened to their customers to keep them happy.

I have a sony vaio 8 years old PC and still runs fast. I have a Sony HDTV 5 years old and still works like new. I still have the sony walkman (the first ever portable music player) and it still works. AND I have the launch 60GB PS3 that still works better than my new slim PS3! The fact is, the YLOD (Yellow light of death) on the PS3 problem is very rare compare to the xbox360 RROD problem which happens to 80% of all first generation xbox360 system. people isn't very looking into the facts but the percent of the YLOD is very low compare to the dreaded RROD issues. The PlayStation Network being hacked is not Sony to blame. If you're a target, you will get hacked no matter how advance of a security you have. Hell even the Pentagon got hacked. So if the government can get hacked what makes you thing other company can't? As long as you're a target for hackers and hacker wants to hack you, you will get hacked! As for Sony offering two(actually 4 free games if you count the PSP titles) free games, they did sent out an emails clearly stating that you have 30 days to download it. Everybody knows you have 30 days to grab the two games. It's not sony's fault you didn't read the email or sony's blog. Stop trying to make something look bad just cause you hate it.

Sony is a great company, I will buy this Tablet S. You dont take good care of your PS3 that's why it's wrecked now. You should blame your self, not Sony.

Took great care of my PS3. I'm not a hardcore gamer and used it mostly for movies. Just do a Google search on the subject, and do a little reading and research before you buy that tablet. I'm just trying to get my money's worth by protecting you all that still thinks Sony is a great company.
