[Slashgear] Asus Transformer Prime sets massive benchmark pre-release - Page 6

Most important thing about these devices are Apps and frankly iPad has plenty. On top of that i have noticed the USA is fair when it comes to used prices. Here in Toronto Canada anything Apple is sold with a ridicules price even used.

As far as Custom ROMs i like to believe in them but it takes way too long. By the time it even matures you get the nest Transformer which kills the point. TABs to begin with are a form of entertainment and you would like to thing you have the best and with Android they come out with so many versions that its not even funny. As far as hardware upgrades go they are going a stupid pace. In PC world (Game wise) we wait for faster hardware because you can benefit from price/performance etc, Here you get a Quad Core to do the same thing a Single core can do too. Basically speeds with no real purpose. Think of it this way. If Google really wanted a fast phone they could have easily had Tegra 3 Quad Core phone but to them it seem unnecessary with the current level of software. Kind of like having a Intel 16-Core CPU for a gamer which only plays game and games dont use more then 4 core. Or having a 200MPH car but could only drive it to the city until hwys open but when that happens 800MPH cars will be out until the come to a stop with speed like in PC world when CPU could only just go so fast.

In short (Long its the wrong time to buy a TAB unless you know ahead on thing you are going to use it and places you are going to. I know this is OCN and i think like many of you but when i buy a Phone or a TAB first thing that comes to mind is Hardware side of it and 50% of the reason i got my TAB was probably to mess with the processing power or Tegra 2 and see what the fuss is all about. In reality for me @ Home i hardly see a use for a TAB. At night i use my phone in bed to watch videos, tried the TAB was too big, heavy, bulk. Sitting on the couch and trying to use the TAB for different thing was a pain because i could do the same thing in my Computer Room with my PC with much ease. These are mostly for entertainment. Music has no advantage on them. Watching a Movie is nice if you thing about it but why bother and just want it on TV or PC. You might want to go backyard and watch out there (few people do that but at day time you cant because of the Sun)

Some give me a reason to believe in TAbs again.
So whats the point of getting a iPad 2, its not like there is any reason to get it over the iPad 1 after all quite literally no games take advantage of the Tegra 2s full power.

BTW everyone, Tegra 2 didn't have high profile support, but Tegra 3 does, they showed it last year running high profile at 2560x1600.

I thought it was already shown that battery life for tegra3 will be unimpacted in comparison to tegra2?

Also, at the moment, yes--if you want office productivity, there's no reason to get a tablet for that--laptops are by far the best option for that. But since tablets are still primarily media consumption, a laptop honestly cannot compete in terms of battery life, portability, and usage. I do a bit of traveling for my job, often on international flights, and coach seats are not at all conducive to laptops, nor do regular laptops frequently have the battery life necessary for transatlantic flights.

A tablet entirely fails when you need to do office work though. No argument there. I'm sure (and I hope) it will change, especially with Windows 8 on the horizon. But for now, it's all media, very little productivity.

Even if you have the keyboard for the TF.

You really believe that a quad core with a 40% clock boost built on the same 40nm process as a dual core will have similar battery life? My laptop gets better battery life than my TF does without the keyboard attached. It was also within $50, is only slightly larger and I can use it for more than media.

The TF and keyboard aren't so bad when doing homework, it's a netbook with more battery life.

Yes, because they also upgraded the battery capacity--and tegra3 is more efficient as well. Battery life is quoted at 14hrs http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/19/a...er-2-at-asiad/ I'm sure that will be more like 12ish when its benched. Why is that so hard to believe?

Again, I'm not saying that a tablet is better than a laptop--but would you also agree that not everyone needs the capabilities of a laptop?

But I'm also skeptical that your laptop can get the same actual usage time (idle time doesn't count) as a tablet--what laptop do you have? My work laptop can hit 10 hrs of usable battery life, but that's only with the optional second battery.

The TF is rated for 9.5 hours but the most mine ever did was 7-8 during browsing and Netflix, games are worse. The most battery taxing thing is wifi or the game it's running.

I agree that that not everyone needs a laptop but for less money a laptop will do more so it doesn't seem worth it unless you have some money to blow.

My laptop http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834158076 gets right around 8 hours while working in word with some mild browsing. Power saving features are all on and the screen is pretty dim but...it's still 8 hours.

Speaking of long-battery-life laptops...

My Acer Aspire Timeline gets about 8 hours of battery life when using wi-fi and upward of 12-14 hours with it disabled and light usage Gotta love the Core 2 SU9400, DDR3, and 80GB SSD combo

Also, both the Galaxy Nexus and Trans. Prime are making me quite disgruntled by not being available now, I need them for travel ASAP

We must wait for a more legitimate, i.e. more optimized benchmark software to accurately gauge the TF2's performance when it comes to Tegra 3 in CPU processing and graphics. Many here have overlooked the fact that there's a cap in the benchmark, thus the "poor" graphics scores.
Thank you, that explains it.

There's plenty of reasons to get it over the first iPad, e.g, speed. Infinity Blade was updated to make use of the better GPU with improved textures, lighting, and 2x MSAA. Infinity Blade 2 which is even better graphically will probably stress the GPU a lot more, it's got some amazing graphics.

I wonder how much this will cost... I might be tempted if it isn't too expensive...
