General ICS is supposed to be faster, right?

    Honeycomb numbers:
    ICS numbers:
    Quadrant: 1820
    Antutu: 9496


    Running numbers a 2nd and 3rd time to get an avg .. and not like it even matters to me, but i thought ICS was supposed to be this speed demon for tablets?

    One thing i have absolutely noticed, is the app drawer!! Holy sh*t its lightning fast! Im using the 4D drawer from EX

    EDIT, identical numbers ran second time

    the numbers were identical on ICS both times i ran, but both times were lower than when i ran the same benchmarks on Honecomb.

    not complaining, i havent had time to tinker and "feel" it yet. But i was definitely expecting to be blown away by these numbers over the same tests on honeycomb.

    Maybe smoothness and menu speed doesn't necessarily register with quadrant. I'd judge it more my feel and experience as opposed to benchmarking.

    See my post about Force GPU rendering in Developer options - it makes a HUGE difference!

    I am no expert but from what I was told ICS and benchmarks don't get along. So quadrant scores don't necessarily mean much. As reference look at the Gnex quadrant compared to similar phones, Gnex looks horrible. I own one and can tell you it is a great phone.

    I, like you, like numbers to prove to myself how great something is. Just seems they won't work with ICS.

    I just ran Quadrant and got 2523 on ICS. Can't remember what I got using Honeycomb but around 2200 iirc. But whatever. ICS definitely seem faster to me than HC.
