Toshiba AC100 Tegra 2 benchmarks tip the performance we’ve been waiting for

Toshiba AC100 Tegra 2 benchmarks tip the performance we’ve been waiting for

With the Toshiba AC100 out in the wild, it's now possible to see just how well NVIDIA's second-gen Tegra chipset performs in comparison to other Android hardware.  According to Carrypad's testing, the answer is "pretty darn impressive"; they've run Quadrant on the AC100 (an Android app that measures various aspects of processor, memory, I/O and 2D/3D graphics and combines them into a single score) and the netbook managed 1,911.  In contrast, a Google Nexus One running Android 2.2 scored 1,390.

HTC Glacier dual-core Android phone benchmarks spotted: is this T-Mobile’s Project Emerald?

HTC Glacier dual-core Android phone benchmarks spotted: is this T-Mobile’s Project Emerald?

The HTC Glacier has hitherto been a single, mysterious mention buried in HTC's site; now, according to some leaked benchmark stats, it could be the next big thing in Android handsets.  AlienBabelTech spotted the Glacier's scores buried with no accompanying image in the GLBenchmark 1.1 database, comfortably out-performing single-core 1GHz rivals, and since T-Mobile USA are tipped to be working on a dual-core Android phone as part of "Project Emerald" they're guessing it's one and the same thing.

Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7022 Review

Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7022 Review

Desktop replacement notebooks may pull together the computing experience with more of a nod to portability than the average PC tower, but there's also a price sacrifice to be made if you want the same crunching abilities. Into this hotly contested field steps Toshiba with the Satellite L675D-S7022, a 17.3-inch notebook that sneaks in at under the $800 mark. Is this the budget desktop replacement to beat? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Verizon DROID 2 benchmarks suggest fastest Android so far [Video]

We're expecting Motorola and Verizon to take the wraps off of the new DROID 2 this coming Wednesday, but the smartphone has already shown up for some in-the-wild pre-testing.  Over at Android and Me they've been putting the 1GHz smartphone through its paces, and according to their benchmarking figures the DROID 2 is well on its way to being the fastest Android 2.1 handset to-date, as well as packing almost twice the graphical performance of its DROID predecessor.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review

It's not enough for a 14-inch notebook to deliver decent runtimes, a little processor grunt and pleasing looks any more; now we expect graphical excellence too. In response, Lenovo have outfitted their IdeaPad Y460 with a dedicated ATI Radeon GPU, and they've even thought to put a switch on the front which allows you to turn it off when you're feeling more spreadsheet than gaming minded. Two birds with one stone, or just a lame duck? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Drobo FS gets benchmarked

Drobo FS gets benchmarked

The Drobo FS "File Server" came as a welcome surprise to network-loving users wanting to share the Drobo magic with multiple computers, but just how well does it perform?  New owner Timon Royer wasn't content with Data Robotics' own "30-40MB/s" figures, and so he benchmarked the compact NAS/server himself.  He found that, while the Drobo FS does perform better than a second-gen Drobo, it's still not the NAS to get if you're looking for outright speed.

Gateway One ZX6900-01e Review

HTC EVO 4G Review

HTC EVO 4G Review

Long anticipated, hugely specified and just plain huge: there's a lot to like about the HTC EVO 4G. The first WiMAX phone in the US brings with it the promise of DSL-like mobile data access along with the flexibility of Google's Android OS, complete with HTC's now-legendary hardware quality and flexible Sense UI. On the flip side it's nowhere near cheap and WiMAX coverage is marginal. Is this new superphone faster than a speeding bullet, or is that just how quickly it drains its battery? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia N8 benchmarks tip 180% speed boost over N97

Nokia N8 benchmarks tip 180% speed boost over N97

While Nokia's overall specifications for the N8 generally met with approval - if not, in the case the 12-megapixel camera, outright lust - the smartphone's 680MHz processor led to some criticism that the phone might not keep up with its Android and Windows Phone rivals.  Over at Finestfones they've apparently had enough hands-on time with an N8 prototype to run some benchmarking tests, and the reassuring news is that, in comparison with previous Symbian handsets, it's quite the little speed demon.

Simulated Moorestown browser test pits Intel against iPad [Video]

Simulated Moorestown browser test pits Intel against iPad [Video]

In among Intel's hyperbole for the Atom Z6xx launch earlier this week were some impressive stats for internet browsing performance, contrasting what users of Moorestown-based MIDs, tablets and smartbooks could expect in comparison with rival devices.  Steve Paine over at UMPC Portal decided he couldn't wait for the first Z6xx demo units, and so set up some browser tests of his own; he locked a Menlow-based Viliv X70 MID to 800MHz and pitted it against the iPad for some real-world surfing.
