Asus sets benchmark with Transformer Prime

While Asus gears up for the release of the new Transformer Prime, website Tech2 has discovered the tablet's benchmark scores during a review of the previous model.

"We happened to stumble upon a rather interesting find in AnTuTu benchmark. Topping the leaderboard was none other than the Transformer Prime flexing its quad core muscles."

In fact the Transformer Prme was shown breaching the 10,000 mark barrier in AnTuTu, showing that it had more than twice the power of the current Transformer.

We already know that it will be the first tablet powered by the Nvidia Kal-El, and that it's likely to have Android Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS.

On the manufacturer's website, Asus boldly claims: "With the all new Eee Pad Transformer Prime, we are setting a benchmark for what tablets should be." And it appears it's not joking.

The Asus Transformer Prime is now just days away from release - it should hit shelves on November 9th.

The previous Transformer model, the Eee Pad Transformer, took one of the top prizes at Stuff magazine last week, winning Gadget of the Year over big products like the iPad 2. Editors were impressed with the way it worked with its clip-on keyboard to transform (ahem), into rather a lot more than 'just' a tablet.
