Nvidia Tegra Tab 7 gets benchmarked
Last week we found out that Nvidia may be working on two own-brand Android tablets, one of which is a 7-incher that is supposed to go on sale first – before the end of this year, in fact. This may be called Nvidia Tegra Tab or Nvidia TegraNote Premium. For now, let’s call it Tegra Tab.
We’ve already shown you what it looks like (at least the back), but now it’s been caught doing its thing in a benchmark results database. Turns out some enterprising soul with a Tegra Tab on hand decided to run the AnTuTu benchmark.
The Tegra Tab’s result is 27,643 points, which is a lot more than, for example, Google’s new Nexus 7. That said, you should keep in mind that the Nvidia Tegra Tab only has 1,280×800 resolution, whereas the 1,920×1,200 of the Nexus 7 sure is more taxing to that device’s GPU.
The 7-inch Tegra Tab should sport an Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset clocked at 1.8 GHz, a 5 MP camera, microHDMI port, microUSB port, a 3.5 mm headset jack, and either microSD card support or a SIM card tray (in which case there’s going to be a 3G and/or 4G version of it too). The Tegra Tab may also come with a stylus, which isn’t something we see very often for small tablets such as this one. The Tegra Tab currently runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and it will probably stick with this version for its release.
