We’re testing the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 right now and we’ve got a preview video ready for you, plus a review coming soon. In the meantime let me just stop and detail some of the findings done in a benchmarking session with this quad core Tegra 3 tablet. Below you can see the results obtained on 3 of the most popular benchmarks out there: Quadrant, AnTuTu and NenaMark 2.
The Transformer Pad is using the same CPU as the Transformer Prime, but in the 1.2 GHz frequency version. Out unit scored 9422 points in AnTuTu, 46.0 fps in NenaMark 2 and 3723 points in Quadrant. Those are all pretty good results, especially the later that as you can see surpasses the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Nexus. The Quadrant test measures CPU, RAM, write speed and 2D/3D graphics. In case you’re wondering, the Transformer Prime usually scores around 4200 – 4300 points, so the difference is not that great.
In AnTuTu the Prime scores less than 1000 points more so we’re safe here, while the actual real life experience with the tablet is excellent. I’ve done all those tests with a live wallpaper applied and all the tasks I could close. Meanwhile, while messing around with HD games, live wallpapers, the camera and intensive tasks I didn’t feel the slightest of lag, so this tablet has Android 4.0.3 fitting like a glove.
