ASUS Transformer Prime vs Transformer Pad TF300: benchmark battle

The Eee Pad Transformer Prime reigns supreme at the top of ASUS' tablet portfolio, but the newcommmer Transformer Pad TF300 has a lot to prove. This cheaper alternative to the flagship also has an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, a gigabyte of RAM and it's running Ice Cream Sandwich. The Transformer Prime is the better of the two tablets (unless you want GPS signals without a dongle) but is it $120 better? If you're a performance junkie, you're about to find out. Note that all tests were made on a Transformer Prime and Transformer Pad TF300 running unmodified Android 4.0.3.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 now available

ASUS has finally released its follow-up to the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad TF300. Available for order now at all the usual major retailers, the new tablet will be replacing the original Transformer in the line up and sell along with the Transformer Prime.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 Review

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime has many charms, but price is not among them. At $499 for the entry 16GB model, it's a step higher than the original Transformer, and ASUS has been selling them side by side since the Prime's introduction in December. But with the new Transformer Pad TF300, ASUS has replaced its original tablet at a more palatable $379 while still keeping some impressive performance capabilities thanks to the NVIDIA Tegra 3 platform and the Transformer's trademark keyboard dock. Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box is the icing on the cake. The Android tablet landscape is a lot more competitive now than it was a year ago - let's see if ASUS has kept up.

Asus Transformer Pad 300 WiFi hits the FCC

We never had any real doubt that the Transformer Pad 300, a cheaper model of Asus' Eee Pad Transformer Prime and the erstwhile replacement for the original Transformer, would be making its way stateside. But Asus seems intent on bringing it sooner rather than later: the tablets has already appeared in the standard Federal Communication Commission's certification systems.
