Performance: Graphics GLBenchmark

GLBenchmark is an OpenGL ES 2.0 benchmark with a number of performance metrics incorporated within. We specifically use the Fill Texture Fetch suite to measure raw texture fill rate of a graphics core and the Egypt Off Screen test to measure 3D performance in frames per second. The Off Screen test renders workloads at 1280x720 for all devices, but off-screen, so Vsynch and screen refresh are not limiting performance.

The GLBenchmark tests paint a very similar picture to what we've already seen: Although the Iconia Tab A700 posts reasonable scores, they aren't chart-toppers by any means. Keep in mind the A700 has a higher resolution screen with the same 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor and DDR2 RAM found in previous generation models such as the Acer Iconia Tab A510. Some of the tablets that outscore the A700 in our various benchmark tests have speedier processors and faster RAM.
