Apple says the new iPad's A5X has four times the graphics performance of Nvidia's Tegra 3 so LaptopMag put their claim to the test.

Using GLBenchmark 2.1 the site found that the iPad did score higher. Performing the program's Egypt Standard test, which shows a 3D animation of ancient Egypt, the new iPad and its A5X chip processed 6718 frames at a rate of 60 frames-per-second to the Transformer Primer's 5,939 frames at 53 fps.

The iPad also came out on top in the Geometric test (vertex weighted), which measures low-level shader performance. It processed 7,530,524 frames at a rate of 57 fps while the Tegra 3-based Transformer Prime processed just 3,523,926 at a rate of 27 fps.

Finally, during the Fill test, which measures texturing speed, the iPad processed 1.98 billion textels per second to the Prime's 404.61 million.

LaptopMag also ran Geekbench, Peacekeeper, and Sunspider tests on the two tablets. You can check out the results at the link below....
