Linpack (FPU bench)
Neocore 3D Bench
 EV2 - 2 x A9 @ 533 MHz + PowerVR 530
*Great CPU & Linpack scores because of multi-threaded tests, weak to Ok 2D scores, Ok 3D score.

 Samsung S5PV210 A8 @ 1 or 1.2 GHz + PowerVR 540
*Very strong 2D & 3D scores, weaker I/O & CPU score though Linpack (FPU) gives good score to Samsung. Quadrant must have ran some CPU tests that the Samsung CPU was not happy about and may not reflect real world performance. S5PC110 should get similar performance with better battery life.

 Freescale i.MX515 + Adreno 200 (AMD Z430?)
*Weak CPU score, good 2D and weak 3D.
OhPad @ 1 GHz
CPU: 970, Mem: 947, I/O: 2796, 2D: 180, 3D: 209
 Rockchip 2918 + Vivante GC800
*Very good 3D but weaker 2D Quadrant scores in almost all benches below except for the Arnova 10G2 which has good 2D #. This could point to a driver (firmware) issue rather than badly designed 2D GPU? Could affect fast action, higher res display or high detail 2D type games. Also, Linpack (FPU) scores are tad low but Quadrant CPU scores were great. ie, different CPU tests in these benches gave different CPU/FPU scores.

 TI OMAP A8 1 GHz + PowerVR 530
*Ok 3D but more on weaker side which can be seen in Quadrant 3D & Neocore scores. 2D seems pretty good. Linpack & CPU scores are good. So-so for 3D gaming but should do everything else well. Avoid if you want great 3D performance.
Archos 101 IT (OMAP 3630)
CPU: 2639, Mem: 1201, I/O: 1647, 2D: 203, 3D: 319
Neocore: 24.2 FPS
 Nvidia Tegra II - 2 x A9 @ 1 GHz
*Notice the really great 2D & 3D scores which only the PowerVR 540 (found in Samsung S5P CPUs) can almost match. This CPU+GPU scores very well in all areas since very powerful hardware.

 Vimicro VC882 A8 @ 1.3 GHz + Vivante GC400
Haipad M8 (1280x768)
*2D score on lower side, 3D score good in Quadrant but pretty low Neocore score tells different story about 3D performance. Only suggest for lighter 2D gaming and to avoid 3D games.

A] Some CPUs get high Quadrant scores because of I/O which are somewhat important but not that much. Better to look at individual scores rather than the totals when doing comparisons.
The S5PV210 & AM8726 seem to score really low in I/O which brings their total score down. GPU (2D & 3D) is most important to check for the best gaming anyways!
#1 For the Linpack (FPU) scores; the Galaxy Tab (A8 @ 1 GHz) scores 19.5 and Samsung S5PC110 Dev Board @ 1 Ghz scores 13 Mflops for comparison. Quadrant CPU likely measures CPU not FPU performance, ie # of instructions and integer math.
#2 A9N scored higher in CPU but multicore only improves multitasking/OS responsiveness and when using multi-threaded applications. Many games and lots of applications tend to be single threaded. In most cases, 70% or higher. Plus, the somewhat weaker GPU means so-so gaming performance.
#3 For EV2 chip, single threaded programs will only use 1 x A9 @ 533 Mhz which maybe underpowered. Also, high CPU requirement, single threaded applications will use 1 core and may not run really well or at all @ 533 MHz.
#4 The A9N (EV2) uses 3.7v battery and will last longer; almost twice of tablets using 7.4 volts. Almost all China tablets use 7.4v (3.7v + 3.7v in series) and so they only have half the battery capacity. 2 x 3000 mAh @ 7.4v (in series) = 3000 mAh. 2 x 3000 mAh @ 3.7v (in parallel) = 6000 mAh. That also explains why the iPads get 10+ hours of battery time since they run off of 3.7 volts!
#5 The difference in I/O is really crazy. The S5PV210 & AM8726 score very low in this test meaning they will be slower to boot, open, copy and write files but this should be considered a minor negative because their CPUs & GPUs are pretty good performers and should run everything pretty well.
#6 Higher resolutions affect Quadrant 2D & 3D & Neocore scores; give lower gaming performance. If gaming is very important to you then choose a lower resolution tablet. Higher res makes text crisper and better for web browsing & reading.
If you want (1) to ensure all single threaded, high CPU requirement applications run properly and/or (2) are into gaming then avoid buying EV2 tablets like the A9N and Rena3 and go for a higher speed, single core A8 or A9 with PowerVR 540 (S5PV210) or Mali-400 GPU (AM8726).
THIS IS WHY BENCHMARKS ARE IMPORTANT. TO SEE AND CHECK THE PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY OF TABLETS BECAUSE NOT EACH IS EQUAL!!!
Edit #1: added in Amlogic benches
Edit #2: added in many more benches, some other A8 chips and revised some content.
Edit #3: added in more RK2918, TEGRA 2, OMAP 3630, AML8726 benches & cleaned up content for better reading.
Edit #4: added in Ainol Novo 8, INLE M728/T9 & Haipad M8 + point #6.
