Graphics iPad 4 vs. Surface Pro: test results




Graphics iPad 4 vs. Surface Pro: test results

Several years ago, the smartphone iPhone has revolutionized the mobile market, and the tablet iPad only took little brother traced the course. Both devices are reasonably powerful graphics subsystem. Recently the majority of care is so important question: Can the tablet to replace the habitual laptop?

Up to this time to adequately compare the performance of single-chip system with Apple A6X graphics core PowerVR SGX554MP4, underlying the fourth generation iPad tablet, and CPU Core i3-3317U HD 4000 graphics, the core of the tablet Surface Pro running 64-bit version of Windows 8, it was impossible.

With the release of new versions of the benchmark and the GLBenchmark 2.7 DXBenchmark 2.7 has information on the results of the comparative performance of the graphics chip. To assess the performance of the graphics Core i3-3317U (Ivy Bridge) in DXBenchmark used application programming interface DirectX, and to estimate Apple A6X – benchmark GLBenchmark, using OpenGL ES.

Given all this, you can look at the results of the performance of graphics subsystems 4 and iPad Surface Pro. Initially, you should pay attention to the low-level performance and processing speed of filling triangles. According to this indicator graphics subsystem iPad 4 in half as productive as compared to Surface Pro. In terms of performance in geometry processing gap increases by 2.5 times.

If we compare the results of the test GLBenchmark 2.5 Egypt HD and GLBenchmark 2.7 T-Rex – the difference is huge. Intel HD Graphics 4000 can produce a large number of frames per second – 48 to 16 at the PowerVR SGX554MP4. Of course, do not forget about the power consumption – 5 to 17 watts in favor of Apple A6X, but it is only a matter of time. Maybe soon the Intel did manage to win the battle at the ARM in the mobile chip, providing high performance and at the same time, energy-efficient chips. Platform Clover Trail, about which you can read here , inspires great hope.

On the slides also show the results of graphics performance and other tablets running Android, but they cause a lot less interest.
