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. Although our comparison numbers are still a bit limited, we were able to round up a handful of devices to give you a feel for how the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 stacks up. In order to ensure Vsynch and resolution isn’t a limiting factor, we will compare offscreen test results.

In comparison to the previous generation Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 shows an improvement in this test. In the fill offscreen test, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 comes in last. Again, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is one of the few tablets in this comparison chart.
