The iPad Air 2 just beat the only other tablet worth looking at

The first iPad Air 2 benchmarks suggested earlier this week that Apple’s latest flagship tablet is even more powerful than initially believed, even though it didn’t manage to outscore the Surface Pro 3, Microsoft’s tablet/laptop 2-in-1 device.

New benchmark suggests the Nexus 9 is almost as powerful as a 2012 Mac Pro

Not only does the new Nexus 9 tablet look terrific but it also apparently performs terrifically as well. Geekbench developer and Primate Labs founder John Poole has just posted the Geekbench results for the Nexus 9 and the results are positively incredible for an Android tablet. The new device’s single-core score on Geekbench totals 1903, which Poole notes is only slightly less than what “an entry-level Mac Pro (2012) scores” at 1925. Poole also says that such a single-core score for a Nexus tablet is flat-out “insane.” More →
