Computex is just around the corner and details on Cherry Trail-powered Android tablets have already leaked.

According to our sources below, Acer is hard at work on its upcoming GT-810 Android tablet with the new Intel Atom X7. GFXBench is also claiming an 8.5-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, quad-core 1.6 GHz Atom Z8700 X7, 2 GB RAM, Android 5.1, and an internal 32 GB SSD.

We've already had a close look at the Intel Atom Z8700 on the recently released Surface 3. Our own benchmark tests reveal a performance level just above that of the 22 nm Z3795, which was the top Intel Atom CPU at the time of release. The Core i3-4020Y on the original Surface Pro 3 is still clearly ahead of the Atom Z8700 in single-threaded operations. Performance in multi-threaded applications, however, is much more similar between the two processors.

Meanwhile, graphics performance on the Atom Z8700 is notably better than on Bay Trail processors. We're excited to see how far Intel can take the HD Graphics 4200 and for Acer to officially announce upcoming Cherry Trail tablets.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
