NVidia’s Tegra 3 processor has been the most popular quad-core processor for tablets and smartphones alike while Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad processor is only seen perform on the Galaxy S3.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 (Krait) is the closest competitor to NVidia and Samsung although it’s just a dual-core chip.
Qualcomm’s now seeding out a tablet that features their SnapDragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core processor. It’s only for developers for now but if you want an unit to play with, it’s selling it for $1,299 here.
The Verge ran a number of synthetic benchmarks on the tablet (comes with 2GB RAM) with the results shown above. The Quadrant score is right thru the roof while Antutu Benchmark is roughly 30% – 40% higher than the Exynos 4 Quad and Tegra 3.
