Blah blah blah... yawn.

Am I reading this wrong? This is supposed to be exciting and such, because Tegra3 and Q are making more powerful GPUs, right? The Tergra3 is quite new and the new Q Adreno 320 isn't even out yet... but in the chart included above, both of these are losing out to the 5+ month old iPad3 and 1.5year old iPad2. Are these guys competing with the iPad1? You can bet in about 7~8 months the iPad4 will be on the market...

They don't need to compete with any ipad, because people don't make the 'android / IOs' decision based on performance. For the most part if someone's buying a tablet they already know whether they want an iPad or an android tablet. When they decide to buy an Android tablet, then the performance comes into consideration.. so Qualcomm & Nvidia are only really competing with each other. Now, if lots of games came out that were multiplatform and ran noticeably better on the iPad AND consumers were aware that this was down to the GPU performance, we might start to see makers of android hardware up their game.

I think it's pretty shameful and embarrassing that there's people on here making judgement on hardware based on SYNTHETIC benchmarks IN DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS. You can't get much worse when it comes to comparing apples to oranges, people.

from the looks of things the "PowerVR SGX543MP4" is actually more powerful....take a look at the number on the bottom...now apple needs to work on the code a little more...this is the same problem AMD has...their graphics cards are powerful but the code sux

Why only Apple and Sony (PS Vita) uses PowerVR 543MP4? There are some Android devices with SoC from Samsung and TI that uses PowerVR 540 or 530 but now no one uses 543 instead of mali400?

[citation][nom]chromonoid[/nom]I love how it gets destroyed by the iPad 3[/citation]

I love how my $200 Nexus 7 can run smoother than your $500 iPad. haha, saving those $300 and putting them towards my 30 years mortgage ;)

PowerVR SGX543MP4 is more powerful, but too bad the typical users will be worst performance comparing to iPad 2, due to the retina screen.
I advise my friends to either get Nexus 7 or iPad 2(improved version) for the best bang for the buck. With the record heat waves we seen so far, I won't be surprise if we see exploding iPad 3 coming soon.

Congratulations... Only $199,800 to go... You made a real dent in it there with your Nexus 7.

that $300 now is $3,000 in interest at the end he just saved as long as he doesn't fall behind.
Math101 and economics101 FAIL.

Every bit helps, saving on Nexus 7 and my monthly phone bill(with TMobile on my SGS2) does help a lot ;)

[citation][nom]memadmax[/nom]But can it play Crysis?[/citation]
I actually thumbed this comment up because I'm actually very interested in mobile technology (specifically tablets and SmartPhones) which is capable of playing Crysis.

[citation][nom]killabanks[/nom]still not up to par with a quad SGX543 but definitely a step in the right direction[/citation]
So did you expect that a single core GPU to be faster than a quad core GPU?
