The next wave of true HD is arriving with tablets breaking out past the 1080p HD level and reaching into WQHD, or as some say, Retina display. Today we’re seeing some benchmark results that have revealed Acer‘s upcoming 2560×1440 HD display, complete with NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 4 processor under the hood. Sounds impressive right?

We haven’t heard much from Acer so far this year, save for a few budget tablets shown off earlier this year. NVIDIA’s upcoming Tegra 4 quad-core also hasn’t been in the news too much either, as they prepare their wave of processors for the next-gen smartphones and tablets. However, Acer might have one beast of an Android device in the works.

At Computex the folks from ASUS announced a Tegra 4 and ‘Retina’ display Transformer Pad Infinity, and now it looks like it will have some stiff competition from Acer. If the leaked benchmarks revealed today are to be believed. According to NotebookItalia that’s exactly what’s coming.


The benchmark result shown above is an unknown Acer tablet running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and also is powered by NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 4 chip. Then you’ll notice not only a hugely high score, but a resolution coming in at 2560 x 1344. The dip is mostly for the on-screen navigation bar. That isn’t all either, there’s another result they’ve dug up and you can see its high score below.

This score you can see the new tablet more than doubling the performance of the Tegra 3 powered Nexus 7, even with a bigger and HD display on board. So clearly this has some serious horsepower. As a reminder, benchmark results don’t mean this device will ever see the light of day on a consumer shelf, but we have a feeling it will. The results are calling it the Acer TA272HUL and we’ll update when we learn more.

  • Please, just don’t…. don’t perpetuate that stupid, non-technological term “Retina” anymore….

    • haha I know, I know. WQHD and everything else is a better term. I’ll never say Retina again!

    I’d like to see this tablet go up against the snapdragon 600 & 800, not a bunch of tablets and phones from a year ago.

      From all the details I have seen, the T4 hammers the SD600 across the board (compare it to an HTC one or a Galaxy S4). The SD800 and T4, on the other hand, are quite competitive, with the SD800 holding an edge in GPU, while the T4 has is a bit faster on compute intensive tasks. The T4 does has the Chimera always-on HDR signal processing, which I think is way under-rated.

        that’s good to know 🙂 I’m excited to see what capabilities the next gen is going to bring. I’m really excited for the camera technology coming later this year, so always on hdr sounds awesome!

        Surprising that the S800 beats the T4 in GPU performance, graphics is usually Nvidia’s strength, but it may well outperform on many games, because of commonalities with desktop graphics. Usually Qualcomm’s advantage, is in integrated mobile communications, such as S800’s LTE Advanced abilities.

    This is a community of android and we all understand the phrase HIGH PIXEL DENSITY, HIGH RESOLUTION or something like that instead of RETINA.

    More likely that’s 27” monitor-monoblock (AiO)

    None of these terrific benchmarks have anything to so with “retina”!
