Archos/Arnova ChildPad review Part 2: Benchmarks

Benchmarks results

Test conditions:
– all devices were using latest firmware from the manufacturer
– all benchmarks were executed after all tasks have been killed
– test were run multiple times to check for consistent behaviour, the results shown here correspond to average values

Benchmark results interpretation

Comparing two platforms with different versions of the operating system (Android 2.3 vs Android 4.0) isn’t an easy thing, but the benchmarks show that the ChildPad seems to be able to catch up the other tablets in this pricerange. The GPU performance of the Allwinner A10 processor used in a Mpman MID-74C is much better, but the ChildPad is only one out of the four tested tablets to feature 1GB of RAM. Though it features the same CPU and screen resolution as used in the Arnova 7G2(the ChildPad has additional 512MB of RAM), in some benchmarks it actually performs worse than the 7G2; probably due to the different operating system. Still, we would like to mention that the benchmark results don’t fully reflect the real life performance which we will discuss in the next part of our review.

I/O benchmark.

We tested the internal memory performance with Arctools application. It gave the following results:

Read: 15195 kB/s
Write: 6589 kB/s

We found the results quite good, close to Class 6 range.
