The Sony V150 was Revealed in a Benchmark Result
A benchmark test revealed the existence of a new device called Sony V150, which will be powered by Nvidia Tegra 3. Nenamark, the popular benchmark tool for mobile devices, was used to gauge the performance of today’s GPUs. The data gathered from the benchmark result showed that Sony V150 will be powered by 1.4 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with 1280×800 display. The display may impress no one these days as the new iPad offers 2048×1536 resolution and the Asus Transformer Prime HD is set to use a 1080p display. . Of course, there is a possibility that Sony’s tablet actually has a much better display and the prototype bench-marked temporarily uses the 9.4″ display of the S tablet.
As expected, it will run Android 4.0, the latest of Google’s mobile platform; consequently future owners of the device don’t need to wait any longer for an ICS update, something that already frustrates so many Android users.
Owners of Asus Transformer, for example, need to wait for two months before Google approved the update. P tablet and S tablet are expected to receive ICS update at Q2 2012 and Sony hasn’t gotten too specific about that and further delay is still possible.
The benchmark result shows that Sony’s upcoming tablet far outpaces the Sony S tablet, which uses the older Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and it is approximately on par with other Tegra 3 devices, which is while wonderful, it isn’t exactly distinguishing. Unless the V150 have other interesting features not revealed in this benchmark, it would struggle to make a discernible impact like its predecessors. Sony hasn’t revealed any official information about the device.
