ASUS MeMO Pad 7 Review: Intel Bay Trail Inside

Performance: Browsing and JavaScript

Where the previous tests gave us a look at how the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 handles typical computing tasks, these next benchmarks zero in on one of the most common uses for a mobile device: surfing the Web. We compared the tablet to similar tablets with the SunSpider and BrowserMark tests.

JavaScript Testing
JavaScript Android and iPhone Testing

We tested the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 in SunSpider 1.0.2 (in which it scored 606.7), but because this version of SunSpider is so new, we also ran SunSpider 0.9.1, for which we have a deeper comparison pool. The tablet offered a solid score of 617.5, beating out the significantly more expensive Apple iPad 4.

Rightware BrowserMark
Web Browsing Performance

Rightware’s BrowserMark performs gauges page load times, JavaScript and HTML rendering, and other factors to deliver a score that can be compared to other scores from other mobile devices. BrowserMark 2.0 was recently replace by version 2.1 and the new version’s scores cannot be compared, so we tested the tablet with both versions.

The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 scored 2,700 in BrowserMark 2.0, putting it behind most of the Apple devices and even a couple Android devices, but still well above competitors like the Venue 8 and Nexus 7. The tablet scored 1246 in BrowserMark 2.1, which sounds low if you compare it to the 2.0 score, but of course, you can’t. We’ll have more tablets to compare the MeMO Pad 7 to in BrowserMark 2.1 soon.
