NVIDIA Tegra Tab 7 gets benchmarked

Tegra Tab 7 Benchmarks

We’ve been hearing for a while now that NVIDIA would look to bring its own tablets to market, ones which would obviously done the company’s Tegra line of chipsets. Both a 10-inch and 7-inch variant have been rumored, and it looks like one of those has already found itself the test subject of a good old benchmark. It scored a 27,643 in Antutu, which – if you didn’t know — is quite high.

We do have to note that the device is expected to come to market with 720p resolution instead of full HD, so those high marks (higher than the new Nexus 7, mind you) are helped along by that fact. The benchmark also tells us the processor inside was clocked at 1.8GHz, indicating it’s most likely a Tegra 4 chipset sitting inside. This device also appears to be running Android 4.2.2.

Photos of the back of the NVIDIA Tegra Tab leaked a few days ago. The photos didn’t show us much, but it’s always nice to get a look at any angle we can before the thing is made official. We’re still not sure when, exactly, to expect the Tegra Tabs, but we’d be surprised if we don’t hear more about them by the time CES rolls around.

    This is an interesting device…like like nvidas take on adroid keeping it stock ala the sheild…this could be a nice powerful lil tablet…but i dont see it competing unless its at a nice pricepoint which as the shield shows it might not be

    Speed doesn’t mean anything without battery life and the battery life of every Tegra generation I’ve used as sucked.

    • TheOtherGuy

      I had Tegra 2 phone (HTC Sensation) and its battery life sucked!

      However I had 2012 Asus Nexus 7 that had Tegra 3 and its battery life rocked! None of my android phones have come to close to Nexus 7′s battery life.

      So, we can expect absolutely anything when it comes to battery life… unfortunately I doubt it will be less power hungry than Qualcomm’s latest snapdragons.

        All of your Android PHONES have cellular radios which are a huge battery drain, and your Nexus 7 doesn’t. I have the new Nexus 7 and it gets far better battery life than my old nexus 7 (even with a small battery!)

        • jbo1018

          Not to mention tabs have a pound twice the battery capacity of most phones.

          • jbo1018

            have *about* (my bad)

          • TheOtherGuy

            In this case: the tablet has over twice as big battery.

        • TheOtherGuy

          Wouldn’t that be bad that the new Nexus would have worse performance and battery life than the previous? Any sensible company wouldn’t release such a device.

          What you’ve said is _expected_! Surely it has newer technology and it would be bad to perform worse than the previous generation!

          • WhoaManWtF

            My comment was aimed completely at the guy I replied to. He was claiming that the tegra had better battery life than the new Qualcomm when in fact it does not.

      • Mike D

        4325mah battery does help the N7 a hell of a lot tbf!

        • TheOtherGuy

          To be honest, I’ve yet to actually see _any_ mobile processor that is blazingly fast and has a good battery life. NVIDIA isn’t alone in the boat, they got Intel and Qualcomm with them, eating battery while giving mediocre performance.

          My point is: NVIDIA has been bad as well as “decent”, but nobody has been good so far.

          • Mike D

            Aye, that’s a fair comment.

            It is worth remembering that this market is still pretty new (in tech terms) and is having to compete with desktop architecture (if Android was significantly slower at a task, you’d use your PC) in terms of functionality.

            It’ll get there in the end. Performance is fine now on high end CPUs like the Snapdragon 800, we just need more optimisation IMO.

            Heck, the 600 in my One seems to run everything well enough, its just not that great on the battery side of things!

    benchmarks dont mean much anymore…considering a quality real world experience can be inversely proportional to benchmark metrics…

  • simpleas

    Tegra really has to prove itself cause each time they brought a new chip, it was a disappointment.

  • poopfloats

    All the outputs this thing is claimed to have. I would like to think tegra knows what the are up against. I,m not worried. This will rock.

    • hkklife

      I think they basically wanted to maximize their Shield investment so they just took the guts of it and put it in a 7″ reference Tab formfactor. Smart move if you ask me. Look at how Qualcomm has quietly been releasing awesome reference/developer tablets utilizing their latest SoCs. That said, they will really need to price this one aggressively or muscle into some retail arrangements where Asus doesn’t have the N7 (Costco, Target etc) since it’s a bit late for a high-end 7″ tablet.

  • WhoaManWtF

    All of the other Tegras had great benchmarks before they were released as well, and nvidia making more hardware just means they are going to purchase more exclusivity contracts. nvidia is the worst thing to happen to android and I hope they fail and leave it be! The reason they are making their own tab is because none of the manufacturers want to use their chips.

    • Deads

      Really? Nobody else wants to use their chips? Except for all of those that do.

      Please explain why Nvidia is to worst thing to happen to Android. Cause every negative thing that can be said about them can also be said about other chip suppliers in the Android market.

    The very high res Toshiba excite pro with the Tegra 4 was able to hit over 28,000 on Antutu.
    Possibly the best display on any device I’ve ever used, I returned it because I realized Toshiba would never unlock the bootloader.
    If they would I’d definitely buy it again.
