ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 Z580CA Intel-Powered Premium Android Tablet Review

Performance: Browsing & JavaScript

Next, we'll take a look at how the ZenPad S 8.0 compares to some other mobile devices by examining a few benchmarks that are currently available online or in Google Play. 

We'll kick things off with the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark. According to the SunSpider website:

This benchmark tests the core JavaScript language only, not the DOM or other browser APIs. It is designed to compare different versions of the same browser, and different browsers to each other. Unlike many widely available JavaScript benchmarks, this test is real world, balanced and statistically sound.

ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 Browsermark

While not the fastest in either the SunSpider or Browsermark benchmark, the ZenPad S 8.0 posted was able to hang around the upper section of both charts. It's also worth reiterating that there's 4GB of RAM on this tablet, so you should never run into a situation where you have to close tabs or shut down the browser because of a memory shortage.
