Apple IPad Air 2 GPU Tested, Outclasses Tegra K1

By 02:31 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments


Someone has put the Apple iPad Air 2 through GFXBench's 2.7 T-Rex and 3.0 Manhattan's onclassy screen and offclassy screen (1080p) platform and we acquire to ogle at the framerates posted.

The results show the iPad Air 2 is just as fine and even at times better than the promising Tegra K1 chip and its Kepler GPU, which was the previous graphics champ.

The scores below show the iPad Air 2 beat the Tegra K1 in both offclassy screen tests - the same tests that are both capped at 1080p and indicate the raw power of the GPU.

The onclassy screen tests offer less framerate becautilize of the above-1080p native resolution of the iPad Air 2 but it still managed to pull ahead of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 which has the same classy screen resolution and Nvidia's latest chip inside.

The Nvidia Shield Tablet was only able to beat the Apple iPad Air 2 on the onclassy screen tests as its classy screen resolution is 1080p. More importantly the iPad Air 2 achieved superb framerates in all but the onclassy screen Manhattan test - easily above the 30fps threshold.

We're eagerly waiting to see how much better the 64-bit Tegra K1 will be than the 32-bit one in the Shield Tablet and Mi Pad 7.9. As it happens GFXBench lists a Nexus 9 unit (the HTC-made Google tablet with the 64-bit Tegra K1) with scores in both T-Rex and Manhattan but there's nothing in the Info classy screen to indicate this is legitimately the Nexus 9.

Naturally we will be doing our own testing on the iPad Air 2 and Nexus 9 once we acquire our hands on them.

Thanks, Philo for the tip!
