Asus Transformer Prime Benchmarked, Shows Off Quad-Core Speeds



Asus is going to be officially introducing its Eee Pad Transformer Prime later on this month but that doesn’t mean that information about the upcoming Honeycomb tablet isn’t coming to the surface. Today, benchmarks for the NVIDIA Tegra 3 powered tablet emerged showing off just how fast the device’s quad-core chip is.

As you can see from these scores taken from the AnTuTu benchmarking app, Transformer Prime blows away its dual-core competition by a mile. That is no exaggeration either. Of course, it would have been nice to see it pitted against some other tablets as the Moto Xoom, which sits about midway down the list, is the Transformer’s only competition here.

And while these benchmarks are certainly impressive, we’re anxious to see just how this bad boy operates in the wild, especially when it gets the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Anyone going to be making the Transformer Prime their next tablet?

    +1 to the G-nex being the top phone on the list, and beating out the SGS2!

    Absolutely it’s going to be my next (and first) tablet.  These benchmarks make me wonder if the Antutu tests can actually get into the actual graphics performance of the machine though.  It looks like some of the other devices have already maxed out what Antutu is testing for.  I’d put my money on it that if the graphics test was a little more intense, we’d start to see a big separation between this and the others.

      Yeah the test they ran measures framerate of 3d rendering, which nearly all of the top of the field are maxed at. So you see the same size bar for all of the top devices. Going to need something more intensive to measure the gpu.

      Like Drew I’m interested in buying one but will wait for the reviews before deciding.
