NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet: The Fastest Tablet Available

GFX Bench and Sunspider

GFXBench has been one of our standard graphics performance benchmarks for a while. Recently, the company updated its software to version 3.0. With this new version, the old tests are no longer available to run for comparison. Still, we were able to round up a handful of devices to give you a feel for how the SHIELD Tablet stacks up.

GFXBench 3.0
Android Gaming Benchmarks

This was another impressive showing for the SHIELD Tablet. After having used the device for a few days, experiences game and benchmark performance first-hand, it's obvious that the 192 Kepler cores in the Tegra K1 have some serious gaming chops.

General Compute - JavaScript Processing Benchmark

Next up, we have some numbers from the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark. 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, but it can also be used as an indicator as to how well a particular platform handles JavaScript.

The SHIELD Tablet landed about in the middle of the pack here. Its score was good, but it trailed some recently-released devices like the Galaxy Tab S, and the Intel-powered tablets.
