While the ASUS Transformer Prime is far from being sold at retail outlets, it looks like ASUS (or somebody with access to the tablet) has been doing some benchmark testing with the tablet. While doing a review of the original Eee Pad Transformer using the AnTuTu benchmark app, the writers at Tech2 noticed an interesting entry in the results comparison chart. Right at the very top, miles ahead of the Galaxy Nexus was the ASUS Transformer Prime. While the screenshot posted shows a quad-core 1.4GHz version of the tablet, apparently there’s a quad-core 1.6GHz Transformer Prime benchmarked with AnTuTu as well.
Assuming that the results weren’t faked and the device wasn’t spoofed – these very positive results show us that the hype behind the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3/Kal-el processor used in the Transformer Prime is very real. More details about the Transformer Prime will be revealed on November 9th when ASUS officially unveils the device. Who’s excited?
