CPU Benchmarks

As the Venue 10 7000 uses identical specs on paper to the Venue 8 we reviewed – Atom Z3580 SoC, 2GB RAM, 2560×1440 resolution – the only difference in performance would be due to either the larger Venue 10 chassis, which should improve thermal performance, and the differences between Android 4.4 and 5.1.

In the javascript benchmarks we do see a little better performance from the Atom Z3580 SoC in the larger Venue 10 7000, but the results still lag behind the more powerful Nexus 9 and iPad Air 2.

Next we'll look at results from WebXPRT, a browser-based suite that tests various "real-world" scenarios.

Overall the smaller Venue 8 7000 performed better in these tests, which could be attributable to the difference in Android version (it was tested running Android 4.4 Kit Kat), though the results for all tablets were all over the map. The Venue 10 7000 doesn't have a particularly good showing here, but it certainly didn't feel sluggish in actual use.

Next up we'll look at results from the TabletMark benchmark, which tests typical tablet activity such as web browsing, email, and photo/video work.

Here the results are more linear, with the Venue 10 besting the 8 accross the three tests, though the results from these Atom-powered tablets was again underwhelming.

Next we'll look at GPU benchmarks.
