Google Nexus 7 (2013): The Best Android Tablet Yet
Performance: Graphics and General System Level
3DMark Ice Storm is an OpenGL ES 2.0 benchmark test that uses fixed off-screen rendering at 720p then scales the output to fit the native display resolution of your device. Ice Storm includes two graphics tests designed to stress the GPU performance of your device and a physics test to stress its CPU performance.
Google's Nexus 7 tablet took pole position in every single subsection of Futuremark's 3DMark Fire Storm test. Another impressive showing for an SoC that's clearly up to the task of gaming.
The Android-based AnTuTu benchmark does a nice job of measuring individual subsystem level performance for our tablet competitors here, with models for CPU, GPU, RAM and IO (or storage subsystem) performance.
When examining all the compute subsystems within the Nexus 7, there really aren't any weak points to be found. The CPU and GPU are blazing fast for this class tablet (or any mobile device, really), and RAM and I/O performance both hold their own. Google and ASUS clearly put together a tablet that will remain relevant for a long while to come.
