This looks identical to the note 2 indeed. Good speed. Isnt it ?

Thanks Bigler. When do you think you can test the excite pro?

Yes, i am satisfied, even so I believe we will soon see 8 inches tablets with either Snapdragon 800 and Tegra 4 that will have better nps.

Also for me it was important to have a device that has 3G connection.

Only downside with this tablet is that the screen is not "retina"

Hi,

Can you also test it using only one core? I just want to have some comparison between ARM cortexA9 and Intel ATOM cpu of my Galaxy tab3 at the same clock at 1.6ghz. I set it the Intel CPU to use only one core and the result is around 150Knps.

thanks

I think it was around 230 kn/s

when I first tested, with droidfish, it didn't select the 4 cores but just one and I was wondering why under ChessBase online I had much better scores....

Thanks. 230Knps for each 1.6 ghz core of the A9 is so impresive. That puts it near the cortexA15 of the Nexus 10 if we estimate the results. In comparison, a 1.5ghz Qualcomm Krait CPU which is 3 wide and better overall next gen architecture achieves only 100Knps per core.

Opps! I tested it again. Krait is not 100knps per core but rather 120knps. But its still shit :)
