The best way to compare different devices is to subject them to a series of tests. These tests are known as benchmarks which are used for determining the processing speed of the CPU, along with the navigation, and the performance of the graphics unit, GPU, for each of them. On Dec. 15, Itproportal released there comparison between the Nexus 10 and iPad 4, but now there is a recent video in which you will see interesting results in addressing the Nexus 7, Nexus 10, the iPad 4 and iPad Mini.

The first test that appears in the video compares the processing speed of the CPU, the central processing unit. For this test there is a a clear winner: the Nexus 10 with a score of 2,761 points.

The smallest of the Apple tablets, iPad Mini, falls far short with 758 points.

The third test, which has already been mentioned, is to see what the performance of the graphics processing unit, the GPU. This test is very important due to the popularity of graphics software applications such as games. This time, the iPad 4 again surpasses the rest, and by far, achieving a rate of 42 fps. It is followed by the Nexus 10 with 26 fps, iPad Mini with 24 fps and 14 fps for the Nexus 7.
