Performance: CPU and Web Browsing
In the following tests, we will take a look at how the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 compares to other tablets by running a few common benchmarks that are currently available online or in the Google Play Store.
As one would expect, the dual-core CPU and 1.5GB of RAM found in the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 hold the tablet back in comparison to quad-core systems with more RAM. Still, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 outpaces the original Galaxy Tab by a decent margin in the Linpack multithreaded test.
In the SunSpider test, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 earned a midrange score coming in just a bit behind another Samsung tablet, the Note 10.1. While browsing the web on the tablet, we didn’t experience any major hiccups or delays.
There are a handful of tablets in our reference database that have faster processors and more RAM than the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. As a result, we were impressed by the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0’s third place score in the Rightware BrowserMark test.
