Apple A5X Vs NVIDIA Tegra 3: Graphics Performance Test

At the iPad media event last week, senior VP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller claimed that the Apple’s new A5X chip with quad-core graphics, which powers the new iPad offers 4 times the graphics performance of NVIDIA’s 12-graphic-core Tegra 3 – the benchmark processor for Android-based tablets.

NVIDIA was quite skeptical about Apple’s claim, they immediately issued the following statement at that time:

“We don’t have the benchmark information. We have to understand what the application was that was used. Was it one or a variety of applications? What drivers were used? There are so many issues to get into with benchmark.”

Australian Tech blogger – Richie didn’t believe it either, he put Apple’s claim to test in a side-by-side video comparison of the new iPad, which went on sale yesterday and Tegra 3 powered ASUS Transformer Prime.
