Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Vs iPad Air for gaming

At the start of the month, we gave you a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Vs iPad Air review which gave a brief analysis of both devices, before we asked you which one you prefer out of the two.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 actually was the undisputed winner on that occasion, but now we take another look at these two juggernaut devices, but with gaming performance specifically in mind.

As you can see from the visual below, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition has some dazzling specs under the hood. These include an octa-core 1.9 GHz Exynos processor with a whopping 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 graphics setup.

The iPad Air in comparison cannot match these specs it has to be said. Apple has fitted a dual-core based A7 processor chip inside the device, combined with 1GB of RAM and a rumored PowerVR G6430 GPU system. Right away Apple’s iPad Air is at a hardware disadvantage compared to the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, but how does this translate into gaming?

You may be surprised to hear that the iPad Air is still one of the best tablets to buy if you want to play games on it. Below we have included a video which offers up some graphical tests on the iPad Air Vs Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, using the popular T-Rex HD and Egypt HD programs.

Even more surprising, is despite the clear spec differences between the two, the benchmark results at the end of the analysis appear to conclude that the iPad Air still has a slight gaming advantage over the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.

Watch it for yourself and let know what you think. Have you played games on either of these tablets and can offer your own input to agree or disagree with the claims?

Hey what about the missing information from both sides of the screen on the iPad? It’s aspect ratio limits the iPad to a “poor cousin” of the Samsung Tablet, as it is not displaying in FULL screen resolution of the test media. In a game, it is very important to see what is coming from left or right? What are the relative pixel screen densities & sizes of these two products?
