Samsung Galaxy Tab – Sunspider and Quadrant Benchmarks

Posted on 02 September 2010 by



MVI_4559_0001 After our hands-on with the Galaxy Tab we couldn’t resist a few benchmark tests. In the video below you’ll see the Sunspider test which is a single-threaded test. For reference we’ve seen 9000ms on the iPad and just under that on Tegra 2 (with Android 2.1) A netbook comes in at about 2000ms. The Galaxy Tab? About 7500ms showing that the a single CPU core (we’re not 100% on the CPU details yet – we suspect a single Cortex A9 core at the moment.)

Next up you’ll see the Quadrant test that we ran on the Tegra 2 platform this week. On the Toshiba AC100 we saw a very impressive score of 1911 which is one amazing score. Remember the Quadrant test is a CPU, 2D and 3D test so it tests more than just the CPU. On the Galaxy Tab we saw a score of 1064. That might sound a lot less than the Tegra2 platform but it’s more than the impressive Samsung Galaxy S!

All is revealed in the video below.

    I want you to run these specs on the Archos 70 and 101 tablets too!

    Hoping to see some Tegra 2 tablets with 5 inch screens, 3G and excellent video playback.

    I’m pretty sure we went over this once in another thread. Sunspyder is not multi-threaded, so it might as well be dual core but it won’t care.

    Steve-
    Isn’t the Nexus One Result shown based on 2.1? I think you’re running Froyo here, so comparing to a JITless device does not make sense.
    My slightly overclocked Froyo N1 gets a 50% better Quadrant score, in the 1500-1750 range.

    Just a point of interest. I have a sasmung Galaxy S running a lagfix kernel that gets 1730 in Quadrant. An earlier lagfix gets 2200+, however I found the Voodoo kernel upgrade a lot nicer in terms of general system speed.

    the toshiba folio 100, running Dexters foliomod 1.3 scores about 2300 points in Quadrant.
