Boy, don’t we just love benchmarks? They’re the only leak regarding devices that can happen long weeks before a device is certified by the FCC or even leaked in pictures. That’s why today we uncovered a bit of an odd beast: an ASUS Bay Trail tablet with Android…


Back in November Intel’s CEO promised that in 2014 we’ll see Android slates with 64 bit Atom CPUs. It appear that one such 64 bit Atom lays at the core of the new ASUS product. This may end up as an Android equivalent of the recently leaked VivoTab Note 8, a slate with Windows 8. Judging by the benchmarks, we’re dealing here with an Android 4.2.2 device with a quad core Atom Z3730 CPU clocked at 1.33 GHz and with 2 MB of Level 2 Cache.

There’s 64 bit dual channel memory included here and Intel HD Graphics. The specs mentioned by benchmarks also include a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, probably on an 8 inch diagonal, 2 GB of RAM and a 5 megapixel camera. The tablet is codenamed ASUS M8x and the results in the benchmark are similar to the Snapdragon 800’s, which is a pretty big compliment.
