SoC Performance: GPU
Next up we've got some tests that focus solely on graphics performance. The 72-core custom GeForce graphics engine used in the Tegra Note 7 is one of the most powerful currently available in a mobile SoC, so we were particularly interested in seeing what it could do...
The Tegra Note 7 didn't lead the pack, but it was grouped tightly with the best performers here. A couple of the tests in this benchmark are now V-Sync bounce, but as you can see in the Flower Power tests, the Tegra Note 7's GeForce GPU performs very well in comparison to other devices.
The Tegra Note 7 also does fairly well in the GLBenchmark tests we ran. In terms of theoretical peak fillrate, the Tegra Note 7 trails quite a few devices, but in actual frame rates, it was only a pair of high-end, much more expensive Samsung devices that put up better numbers.
