Benchmark Tests Show Nexus 10 Graphics Trail The Newest iPad

There’s little question that the Nexus 10 and iPad 4, better known as the iPad Retina are the two “top” tablets in the market now spec wise. So how do these two tablet juggernauts stack up against each other? As it turns out, the iPad pretty much smokes the competition, including the Nexus 10 when it comes to a graphic showdown. The Mali-T604 and two ARM Cortex A15 cores in the Nexus 10 was pit against the quad-core PowerVR SGX544Mp4 in the iPad 4 in a series of tests performed by the folks at AnandTech.

Overall, the iPad 4 hits the high notes on just about every test it was benchmarked against the Nexus 10, with the Nexus 10 taking home just one test as the victor. That’s not to say that the Nexus 10 didn’t fare well on the tests, quite the contrary as the Cortex-A15 processor took the lead in Google’s own Octane browsing test, as well Mozilla’s Kraken test.

Regardless of benchmarks, its clear that the Nexus 10 is still a formidable tablet competitor. Compared to the Galaxy S III, the Nexus 10 (and Nexus 4) will double the performance thanks to ARM’s latest GPU.
