Ouya Android Console Doesn’t Impress in Benchmarks, 3DMark Reveals (Video)
Ouya may be an appealing Android console, mostly because it’s cheap, but it appears that its aging processor is behaving according to age in benchmarks. A recent run of 3DMark on the device showed us that the scores are not impressive at all.
Last week developer James Coote worked with Futuremark and benchmarked the Ouya. For those of you not familiar with this project, the console was a Kickstarter project, that raised $8.6 million and offered the public a Tegra 3 device to play with on their TVs. The 3DMark benchmark that was ran showed a score of 4,077 points for Ouya, placing it as the 73rd device on the Futuremark’s list of most powerful Android devices.
This places it ahead of the Nexus 7, that scored 3,551, but other older models like the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity can’t be beaten by this console. The Infinity scored 4,246 points. Ouya relies on an Nvidia Tegra 3 1.7 GHz quad core CPU and 1 GB Of memory and if you want a score comparison, the LG Nexus 4, for example scores a huge 10,201 in 3DMark. 2013 flagships like HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 go even further with scores… In the end all it matters here is if the game look nice on the TV, frankly…
