The ASUS MeMo Pad 8 ME181C remains the world's first 64-bit Android tablet and we've been getting quite a few leaks recently as to the performance and tech specs for this tablet. Truth be told we were quite curious how the real life performance of the tablet really is and our Anonymous tipster obliged with some screenshots of Asphalt 8: Airborne and a description of his or her experience with it. According to this tipster, the performance doesn't match with the performance on the benchmarks as the game lags and stutters trying to run. This doesn't match with the performance of tablet having an AnTuTu score of 32000+ so we concluded that the firmware for the tablet still hasn't been optimized completely yet. We have noticed similar performance when trying out the engineering sample for the ASUS ZenFone 5 where the real-life performance does not match with the benchmark performance. There are also camera samples as well which show similar problems as well that you can check out for yourself below:
Performance in Asphalt 8: Airborne has lags and stutters which doesn't match with benchmarks
Still no news yet on any Malaysia release dates or pricing, but what our Anonymous Tipster has is probably another engineering sample, like the ASUS ZenFone 5 engineering sample we managed to get our hands on earlier. We expect the new 64-bit powered ASUS MeMo Pad 8 tablets to arrive in Malaysia sometime after August 2014 with pricing about RM100 to RM200 higher than the currently available ASUS MeMo Pad 8 (which goes for around RM550 to RM600).
Thanks again Anonymous Tipster!
