ASUS Transformer Prime

Right now the most exciting tablet, without a doubt, is the ASUS Transformer Prime. Not only will it be the first NVIDIA Kal-El Tegra 3 quad-core tablet, but it will also be among the first devices to get Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). We don’t know the exact release date yet, but we definitely know many of you are eagerly waiting for this bad boy and would like to see how well it performs.

We know benchmarks don’t always translate directly to the level of performance, but they do provide something to go on when we don’t have the chance to test a device. And benchmark results from the ASUS Transformer Prime have now shown up. As displayed in the AnTuTu benchmark app, this tablet (clocked at 1.4 GHz) beasts the best of the best in benchmark tests. With results over 10,000, the Transformer Prime leaves superphones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy S II in the dust.

As already mentioned, amazing benchmark results do not always result in amazing performance. Regardless, we expect this tablet to be quite the beast. We’ll have to wait and see how much punch it really packs, once we get our hands on it. Are any of you planning to purchase a Transformer Prime? Do you think the performance will be as outstanding as these benchmarks?
