Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (T33 CPU) vs the new iPad (A5X CPU) in Benchmarking

Uploaded by RitchiesRoomTV on 11.06.2012

Okay, so we’ve run a bunch of tests to compare the Transformer Infinity with the latest iPad
from Apple and the results are in. The geekbench app is a great because it uses
all cores of the device’s processor, and the results are calibrated against the same
standard so the scores are completely relational. It’s not so much about graphics but about
processor and memory speed. So how did the two competitors go? The new
iPad had a top line score of 754, while the Transformer Infinity pretty much wiped the
floor with the iPad with a score of 1645. Now according to Geekbench, the scoring is
proportional, so double the score means double the performance - so using a broad brush,
Geekbench indicates that the Transformer Infinity is twice as good as the new iPad in performance.
Then we move on to Browsermark, to measure browser performance. A higher score is better
in this test. Here we have Safari up against Chrome for Android. The iPAd came in at 105
thousand, and the Infinity pushed its own result to 161 thousand, so a definite win
there for the Infinity. For Javascripting, we ran sunspider - here
a lower score is better. On this one the iPad came in at 1684 milliseconds, and the Infinity
at a smigden under 1400 milliseconds - another win for the Transformer Infinity.
Next we ran the GLBenchmark app on both devices, we used both the Egypt and Pro standard tests.
They looked very similar and ran smoothly on screen while the tests were running. However,
the Transformer Infinity processed 3708 frames at 33 frames a second on the Eygpt test, while
the iPad performed at 5963 frames at 53 frames a second. On the Pro test it was similar,
with the Transformer Infinity producing 2374 frames at 47 frames a second, while the iPad
came in at 2882 frames at 58 frames a second. So on a graphics benchmark, the iPad is, well,
still the benchmark. So as far as benchmarking goes, the Infinity
looks to be a clear winner in 3 of the 4 benchmarking tests we ran. It’s fast in browsing and
handling Javascripts as well as accessing its own memory, and is an overall better computational
device. What this does show is just how close Android
tablets are getting to the iPad in overall performance.
