This isn’t the first Tegra 2 device we’ve seen benchmarked, but at least the Viewsonic G Tablet has shown a few benchmarks that are impressive. When the LG Star showed off it’s benchmarks, it was a bit disappointing to see how little improvement the dual-core Tegra 2 showed over current devices in Linpack score. The Viewsonic G is also disappointing on Linpack, actually clocking in below the Nexus One, but its benchmarking is kind enough to add in other scores that look pretty solid.

In terms of browser tests, the Viewsonic G shows marked improvements over the Nexus One, Galaxy Tab and other current hardware. Some strange results popped up in 3D testing, though. Galaxy Tab came out ahead in Neocore testing with a score of 54FPS to 28FPS for the Viewsonic G. But, in Quake III Arena testing, the Viewsonic G came out ahead at 49FPS to the Galaxy Tab’s 32FPS. NVIDIA has mentioned that the Tegra 2 could come in slow in 3D benchmarks, but would provide a solid real-world experience, but we’ll just have to wait and see how that plays out.

Here are the individual testing results, but for the full breakdown, with lots of numbers and stats, check out the feature at AnandTech.
