Over at IDF Beijing 2012 the folks of Netbooknews stumbled upon a reference design tablet from Intel and put ti through some tests via the AnTuTu benchmark. The device had at its core the Intel Atom Medfield Z2460 CPU,  that scored a poor 5335, almost twice less than the Nvidia Tegra 3 on the HTC One X, with 10.369 points.

Graphics is a big part of the AnTuTu benchmark and there’s no competition here yet from the Medfield chipset. AnTuTu usually measures the processor’s memory. CPU Integer performance and CPU Floating Point performance. 2D/3D graphics performance are also taken into account, as well as SD card reading/writing speed and Database IO performance testing. While these were tests done on a reference design tablet, the Z2460 was also benchmarked on a Lenovo phone, the K800, but that happened months ago at CES 2012.

Back then the CPU was put to the Pi benchmark test, that calculated the mathematical constant Pi. The program tests the stability of a certain overclock speed, among others and it a machine calculates pi to 32 millionth place after the decimal without mistake, it’s moderately stable in RAM and CPU. The K800 had changing values and it was slower than the Galaxy S II, so right now the Medfield solution for phones and tablets doesn’t look viable.
