Performance: CPU & Web Browsing
Inside the Dell Venue 8 7000 is an Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core processor based on Moorefield, along with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and Imagination PowerVR G6430 graphics.
We have a large collection of tablets to compare with in the SunSpider benchmark, and once sorted out, the Dell Venue 8 7000 falls in the middle of the pack trending slightly towards the higher end models. Performance is pretty good here, beating out slates like the Apple iPad 4 and Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, but falls behind more recent releases like the category leading iPad Air 2 and NVIDIA Shield.
Any tablet that scores in the 3,000 range is doing well, and Dell's Venue 8 7000 hovers 265 points above that mark. Its score is towards the higher end of the spectrum, though there's still a discernible between the Venue 8 7000 and tablets that consistently stand at the front of the pack.
We see the same in Geekbench -- the Venue 8 7000 manages to find itself on the high ground, though at a little more than an arm's length away from devices like the NVIDIA Shield Tablet and iPad Air 2.
