SoC Performance: CPU and Device
In addition to using the EVGA Tegra Note 7 for portable browsing and gaming and in a variety of everyday usage scenarios, we also conducted some formal performance testing to see how well it compared to some of the other mobile devices we have recently evaluated.
In the Linpack benchmark, the Tegra Note 7 slots in a notch behind the NVIDIA SHIELD and higher-powered phones/tablets we've tested, but well ahead of some of last year's devices.
The Tegra Note 7 also put up some middling numbers in the AnTuTu suite of benchmarks. Its performance was relatively strong in the GPU, memory and storage IO tests, but its overall score trailed the SHIELD, Note 3, and reference BayTrail-based tablet.
According to the MobileXPRT suite of benchmarks, however, the Tegra Note 7 is a performance champ. Here, it trails only the higher clocked (and actively cooled) SHIELD portable gaming device. The Tegra 4 in addition to its streamlined and better optimized installation of Android 4.3 give the Tegra Note 7 an edge in may of the real-world scenarios tested by MobleXPRT.
