ASUS MeMO Pad Smart 10, VivoTab Smart Compared
Balanced - This test is balanced between different areas of the language and different types of code. It's not all math, all string processing, or all timing simple loops. In addition to having tests in many categories, the individual tests were balanced to take similar amounts of time on currently shipping versions of popular browsers.
Statistically Sound - One of the challenges of benchmarking is knowing how much noise you have in your measurements. This benchmark runs each test multiple times and determines an error range (technically, a 95% confidence interval). In addition, in comparison mode it tells you if you have enough data to determine if the difference is statistically significant.
Both ASUS tablets ended our benchmark tests with a thud. Neither one was particularly impressive in Rightware's BrowserMark test, both scoring less than 1,400. Subjectively, the two tablets performed much better on web. We like to use rapid-fire pinch-to-zoom tests to gauge a tablet's ability to surf the web, and both slates ran smooth and responsive.
