It’s been 4 weeks since nan 10.9-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE and nan 12.4-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ were released. But nan income doesn’t look to person taken disconnected wholly yet, truthful let’s return a look astatine nan benchmark scores.
Both sizes of nan Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE are powered by nan aforesaid hardware. Which is nan octa-core 2.4 GHz Samsung Exynos 1380 processor, pinch options of 6GB aliases 8GB RAM pinch 128GB aliases 256GB retention connected nan FE, and options of 8GB aliases 12GB RAM pinch 28GB aliases 256GB retention connected nan FE+.
So successful nan benchmark trial Geekbench 6, some Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE tablets timepiece successful benchmark scores of conscionable up to 1015 successful single-core, and up to 2910 successful multi-core scores.
So those are afloat acceptable benchmark scores for a mid-range Android 13 tablet astatine nan extremity of 2023. And nan specs are mostly good, including a waterproof design, and nan existent value of nan components are besides good.
But astatine nan aforesaid time, location isn’t a full batch of different tablets to comparison these 2 tablets against. The smallest of nan two, nan almost 11-inch S9 FE has a fewer 11-inch rivals successful a akin value range. But for nan 12.4-inch S9 FE+, it is chiefly up against nan conscionable released 12.7-inch Lenovo Tab P12.
Their specs are a small different, but they are some good equipped tablets of astir nan aforesaid size. And their value differs by arsenic overmuch arsenic $200.
So that makes for an absorbing comparison. Because nan Lenovo Tab P12 surely doesn’t person immoderate worse specs, they are conscionable different.
It’s powered by nan octa-core 2.6 GHz MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor and a Mali-G68 GPU, together pinch 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 128GB aliases 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage.
This chipset clocks successful benchmark scores that are a small little though. In single-core, it runs astatine up to 1065 successful single-core, but scores little successful multi-core wherever it tops retired astatine a max of 2440. So nan much cores of nan processor are successful use, nan amended Samsung’s Exynos processor performs compared to nan Dimensity 7050 processor of nan Lenovo Tab P12.
So nan Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ is astir 19% faster erstwhile utilizing each its processor cores. Which is thing to return into relationship erstwhile trying to fig which 1 of these tablets are nan champion to buy.
