Asus Transformer Pad Infinity gives the new iPad a beat-down in benchmark tests

Ritchies Room has taken a video of the two current hottest tablets on the market and uploaded the results to YouTube for our viewing pleasure. The results will likely surprise very few and upset very many. Apple and Asus top dogs were put through four sets of benchmarks in order to measure general performance, browser speeds, java scripting and graphics.

When it comes to processor and memory speed the Transformer wiped the floor with the iPad delivering a score that more than doubled that of Apple’s finest. In the battle of the browsers, Chrome on the Transformer is up to 50% faster than Safari on the iPad, another comprehensive win for the Asus. Javascripting performance is a closer run thing with the Transformer edging out the iPad and it was similarly close in Graphics performance with the iPad’s quad-core graphics chip ensuring the only win for the iPad.

For the full facts and figures you can check out the video below, just try not to look so smug when you show it to your iPad toting friends.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.

      Ipad – 2048×1536

      Not at all half like current tablets … pretty close actually.

      Absolutely not, the whole fuzz about the Transformer Pad Infinity is that it’s one of the first FullHD android tablets and has a quad-core processor…
