Samsung ATIV Q scores 54,861 in first AnTuTu benchmark, crushing the competition

Samsung ATIV Q

The recently announced dual-booting Samsung ATIV Q tablet/laptop has apparently been benchmarked with AnTuTu, obtaining a higher score than any Android device to date.

Reviewed by Taiwanese site ePrice, the ATIV Q has been put through the usual AnTuTu benchmark test, scoring a total of 54,861. That’s almost double what the Galaxy S4 scored in the same test (see our own AnTuTu benchmark comparison table below), and the ATIV Q leaves even Tegra 4-based devices behind (the NVIDIA Shield was clocked at over 32,000 in the same test). In case you were wondering, even the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, which we’ve seen benchmarked just recently (it scored over 35,000 in AnTuTu), was surpassed by the ATIV Q.

ATIV Q AnTuTu benchmark

The ATIV Q was unveiled during Samsung’s June 20 media event in London, and in case you missed it, it’s a 13-inch Windows 8 laptop / Android tablet that’s ready to offer users the best of both worlds.

The ATIV Q offers some impressive specs for an Android tablet – although they’re probably there mainly for the Windows 8 laptop features – including a 1.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor (i5-4200U model, part of the Haswell family), Intel HD Graphics 4400 and 4GB of RAM. However, the impressive AnTuTu score shows that Intel is ready to bring high-performance processors to mobile devices – not that we’re surprised, after all, this isn’t the first time Intel’s mobile CPUs managed to perform well in tests.

Other interesting specs and features of the ATIV Q include a 13.3-inch touchscreen display with 3200 x 1800 resolution (275 ppi), an S Pen stylus and the SideSync software that lets users share data between Windows and Android, or update Android devices directly from Windows. Switching between Windows and Android is apparently done seamlessly – there’s a special button for fast switching – with Android apparently running in virtual machine.

The ATIV Q still doesn’t have an official release date or price, so you’ll have to wait a while to get your hands on this dual-booting convertible laptop/tablet.

    I thought it would have different soc for android and windows… Are you telling me it uses intel core i5 and 4gb ram for android too… Wow

    • icyrock1

      It’s not running real android. Android is running under a VM.

  • box14380

    The best portable device ever. Samsung have managed to produce a hybrid product with superb super fast software and very high benchmark performance. Just hoping this could deliver real performance experience.

  • Jaun Lombard

    So the Intel chips in the galaxy tab range will also be tops! Cant wait!

    • Daniel DS

      Not really. The Ativ Q and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 have totally different chips, so most likely the Tab will again, be a mid-range tablet in terms of performance

    • MasterMuffin

      tab has atom chips, this has I5 which is 10 times better

  • Mohd Danial

    U compare a high end tablet chip with a high end mobile chip.. OF COZ THE TABLET gonna WIN U need a strong chip to drive all that display and heavy consuming apps… for this result i think that the S4 wins despite loosing to a tablet device, this shows that the phone chip could compete with tablet devices.

  • Angel Angelov

    My ACER Iconia W700P have been producing similar results for nearly two weeks after the last update to the AndroidIA project! It is a dual boot either! :) Windows 8 pro and Android 4.2.2

  • sashank

    comparision btwn a phone/phablet to a Ultrabook !?
    I feel Samsung ATIV Q is more of a Ultrabook unning a Android android device

    • MasterMuffin

      yup, when you have full Windows 8, full keyboard and INTEL I5 (!) in your device, I think it’s way too closer to Ultrabook than tablet :)

      • Skan

        but it can be used as a tablet, so why not compare it to other tablets?

  • Guest

    The Intel i5-4200U is a dual-core processor. Please do some research before you post if you don’t know anything about PC and laptop processor or GPUs…

    • hoai111

      yea!! do some research before you post!!!

  • Magnetic1

    Kickbutt man!

  • john

    um…that i5 processor with two digit TDP with a smartphone SoC?
    How is this relevant?
    What? Airplanes can travel higher than a train?

  • spade

    I wonder what price that would be.

  • Roberto Tomás

    tegra 4 has scored much higher than project shield.. the demo board they set up scored 42000, almost in the same neighbourhood as this HASWELL chip. :)

  • Roberto Tomás

    I’m not that taken by this convertible, even though it is clearly a great PC. I should start with that: as a PC, its really one of the first modern designs they’ve done.

    It is still a PC. It has all of the flaws of: archaic x86 architecture, backwards server-driven hardware optimization, tons of ancient software and malware written for it, and a need for a battery that weighs more by itself than entire android tablets ..even apple’s notoriously heavy ipad is about the weight of this thing’s battery. If you are going to get a PC, doesn’t it make sense to get one that can play games? This cant.
    All that, plus the reason it has that super high density LCD is because YOUM is just around the corner and they needed a stop-gap if they wanted to release this this year.

    Memory, integer and floating point blasts everyone else. But from that, the 2D & 3D results are not impressive at all.
    So this slate has more memory because of windows need, and the emulator can do faster integer and floating point operations. But how would it handle emulating the rest of the ARM instruction set and ARM extensions?

    Also power requirements for that CPU/GPU etc, this is just a laptop that converts to a tablet, it’s not on the same category as mobile devices.

  • cody

    well, no fucking shit it surpassed those phones it equiped with a compute processor. And who the fuck needs that fast of an android device with windows 8? you can barely tell the difference between this and a s4 while browsing and gaming.

  • Grigori Derkats

    ive got a htc one and i got
    on antutu benchmark 26585 on it which dominates the s4 (600)
