NVIDIA is almost certainly working on a tablet of its own, likely powered by the company’s 1.8GHz Tegra 4 chipset. We recently saw leaked press images of the 7-inch device, and now someone has managed to put its through early benchmarks. Obviously benchmark tests aren’t very accurate when they aren’t run on a device with final software and hardware — we imagine the Tegra Tab 7 isn’t yet final, especially since it hasn’t been announced — but it’s fun to see how it stacks up anyway.
The Tegra Tab 7 notched up a score of 27,643 in an AnTuTu test. By comparison, that’s on a par with the eight-core model of the Galaxy S4, which has the highest AnTuTu score of the year so far. In other words, we should be able to expect some amazing performance out of the Tegra Tab, though there are devices already on the market that can compete.
As its name implies, the Tegra Tab 7 should have a 7-inch screen, hopefully with a full HD resolution, and other rumors point to a micro-HDMI port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 5-megapixel camera and possibly a stylus. We imagine it will serve as a complementary device to the NVIDIA Shield Android gaming gadget, especially if NVIDIA wants to sell the tablet with a gaming focus.
