There have been plenty of AnTuTu benchmarks spotted lately, some of them featuring devices that haven’t even been announced yet. Today’s benchmark displays the result obtained by the Android console created by Nvidia called Project Shield.
As you can see in the image above, the Project Shield console has obtained a score of 32,150 in the AnTuTu benchmark. Nevertheless, the device has not been launched yet, so there is a chance that this benchmark could be fake as it not that hard to tamper with.
Anyway, supposing that it’s indeed legit, we are dealing with a device powered by a Tegra 4 quad-core chip clocked at 1.9 GHz and that it’s running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Even though the obtained score does not blow anyone’s mind, the Tegra 4 processor is still powerful enough to beat all the existing competition. In fact, the score is very similar to the other Tegra 4 tests we’ve seen so far.
Until now there have been a few benchmark test for devices powered by the Tegra 4 and we have the HP SlateBook X2with a score of 27,259, the HP Slate 21 AIO with 23,584, the Toshiba AT-1-LE-A with 28,058, and the early Tegra 4 test when it managed to score 36,305.
Nevertheless, the scores vary so because they have been made on different platforms. For instance, this is the first Project Shield benchmark as I can’t recall another one made in the past. The other benchmark scores have been obtained by the same Tegra 4 processor, but powering different devices such as all-in-ones or tablets.
As I mentioned before, the Project Shield Android-based console has not been launched yet, but rumor has it that Nvidia will release it sometime until the end of June 2013. We expect that the chip maker will offer more details about the device in the weeks to come as there isn’t much longer until the alleged deadline.
The Project Shield console will come sporting a 5-inch screen that will have a resolution of 720p and a pixel density of 294ppi. It will be underpinned by the Tegra 4 quad-core ARM Cortex A15 CPU, helped by an Nvidia GeForce 72-core GPU. Also it will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will come along with gaming controls, of course. Another mentionable feature is its support for Steam games.
