The newly announced Nexus 7 (2013) tablet has been put through various benchmark tests alongside its predecessor, and came out a clear winner, as expected.
During its media event the other day, Google mentioned that the new Nexus 7 will offer an improved performance when compared to the first-gen tablet, saying that the device is 80% faster than the 2012 model when it comes to processor speeds and delivers a graphics performance that’s four times better.
Android Police put the new Nexus 7 and the old model (running Android 4.3 and Android 4.2) through a couple of tests including Geekbench 2 and Androbench.
In Geekbench 2, the new Nexus 7 outscored its predecessor in every test, whether it’s integer performance, floating point performance, memory performance and stream performance, obtaining an overall score of 2650, which is almost twice what the Nexus 7 (2012) got – 1344. The new Nexus 7 also outscored the Nexus 10 in the same test.
The Androbench memory benchmark told a similar story, with the new Nexus 7 crushing the first-generation model in a very important internal storage speed test. According to the results obtained, the new Nexus 7 “five times faster on sequential reads, 2x faster on random reads, and about 1.5x faster on both sequential and random write operations.”
