Asus appears to be testing a new MeMO Pad tablet with an x86 processor. This could be the first member of the company’s budget Android lineup to feature an Intel Atom processor instead of an ARM-based chip.
While there are no pictures, prices, or release dates on the site, there are a few things the benchmarks tell us about the device.
It seems to have a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an x86 processor with a top speed of 1600 MHz and a bottom speed of 800 MHz, and the device runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
It’s likely that the device features an Intel Atom Clover Trail+ Z2560 processor and PowerVR SGX 544 graphics.
Right now Asus offers two different devices under the MeMO Pad brand. The Asus MeMO Pad ME301T is a $299 tablet with a 10 inch display and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The MeMO Pad ME172V is a 7 inch tablet with a WonderMedia WM8950 processor and a $149 price tag.
Both are priced as bargain device, selling for less than other tablets in their size class. But while the 10 inch MeMO Pad is a pretty great tablet for the price, I was a bit underwhelmed by the display on the 7 inch model.
Judging by the name, I’m guessing it will be a 10 inch tablet, but with a full HD display it could carry a higher price tag than the ME301T, which has a 1280 x 800 pixel screen.
The ME302C does score higher than the ME301T is GLBenchmark tests, but those benchmarks are designed primarily to examine graphics performance, not all-around performance.
