Performance: Graphics & General System
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.
Here again the scores reflect the fact that the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 wasn’t designed to be a high-end gaming tablet. Still, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 earns a higher score than the previous generation Galaxy Tab.
There's too much data to graph with the latest version of the AnTuTu benchmark, so we've got all of the numbers in a simple table for you here. As you can see, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 earns a mid-range score in the IO tests and comes in at the bottom in the other components of this test.
