Performance: Graphics and System Level

An3DBench XL is a benchmarking tool based on an Android port of the jPCT 3D engine. The app runs a total of seven tests that look at graphics processor fill rate and complex rendering workloads and scenes. We've got numbers from three of the tests in the graph below.

3D Graphics Testing

The Emperor's New Clothes test is limited by V-Sync which results in similar performance across all devices. As you can see, the A700 comes in near the top, but there isn't much of a range in scores from the best to the worst. In the Flower Power test, we again see the A700's limitations since it comes in near the bottom compared to other tablets. The A700 fares much better in the Magic Island test, earning a mid-range score.

AnTuTu Android Benchmark
Subsystem level performance measurements

The Android-based AnTuTu benchmark does a nice job of measuring individual subsystem level performance for our tablet competitors here, with models for CPU, GPU, RAM and IO (or storage subsystem) performance.

In the CPU component of this test, the A700 comes in behind the Asus Transformer Prime in Performance mode but beats the same tablet when it is running in Balanced mode. Again, though, the GPU and IO scores in this test show the A700 lagging behind the competition.
