The LG G Pad 8.3 is the top of the line LG tablet right now, standing out through a premium design and pretty evolved specs. The device was recently tested by Phone Arena and benchmarked through the usual series of tests, that include Quadrant, AnTuTu and the likes.
We’re dealing here with a tablet that uses a Snapdragon 600 quad core CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz, with an Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The device scores 11789 points in Quadrant, which is about 5k points more than a relatively similar slate, the Galaxy Note 8.0, that has an 8 inch screen and a quad core Exynos CPU.
In AnTuTu, the LG G Pad 8.3 scores a respectable 25k points, besting the likes of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z by about 6000 points. This is pretty much the difference between a Snapdragon S4 Pro device and a Snapdragon 600 one. In GFXBench Egypt HD 2.5 onscreen, the LG tablet reaches 39 FPS, even beating the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, supposed to be the most powerful slate out there.
Finally, in Vellamo Metal the score is a bit lower than expected, at 743 points. I wonder when will we see a mainstream sub 10 inch slate with a Snapdragon 800 inside…
