Acer Iconia Tab Series with NVIDIA Tegra Processors: Quick Review Roundup

Acer Iconia Tab Series with NVIDIA Tegra Processors: Quick Review Roundup HI guys, welcome back to this site!

Compared to the iPad or Samsung GALAXY tablets, Acer is definitely not on the same level with these 2 big giant rivals, especially in terms of sales and popularity.

However, despite being an under-the-radar tablet manufacturer, for me personally and of course, from what i’ve seen on YouTube reviews, Acer actually has the expertise in making many solid quality tablets.

The more impressively about this company is – especially its tablets – most of Acer tablets are powered by NVIDIA’s mobile processors, which have been proved their superiority especially in graphical performance.

Most of Acer tablets are released under the Acer Iconia Tab series, ranging from high-end, mid-end to even low-end category.

However, as mentioned above, most of these tablets are armed with Tegra processors – either Tegra 2 or Tegra 3 processors -.

So when it comes to gaming performance, there are actually some of these Acer tablets that i believe can be great gaming tablets, if not the best of course.

Below, i’m about to share to you some of the Acer Iconia Tab tablets that ship with Tegra processors.

This manufacturer actually also has some other Acer Iconia Tab tablets under its sleeve - which actually have been available to buy around the market (so they are not under its sleeve anymore).

But given that this blog post is only focused to only Acer tablets with Tegra processors, then i’ll probably make some separate quick summary blog posts in the near future.

So you might want to stick around on this website if you want to find out more about those other tablets as well!

Acer Iconia Tab A200

Acer Iconia Tab A200Tegra 2 dual-core processor used to be the world’s first dual-core processor around the tablet market. So this mobile processor used to be considered as beast around the market back then.

Acer Iconia Tab A200 is one of the lucky tablets that gets the treatment of this NVIDIA’s dual-core chipset.

So basically, in 2012, this device is of course on the same level in performance with other tablets in high-end category.

The great thing is, it’s actually not only its processor that makes this tablet superior in performance.

There are still many other goodies that you’ll find in the package of this device, like its 720p resolution on its 10.1-inch display, its 1GB of RAM, its 8-core GeForce ULP GPU, its microSD card slot for up to 32GB to support its 8/16GB of internal storage, its 3260mAh power battery and a promised 8 hours of battery life for talk time.

Unfortunately, this tablet still lacks on some other sectors, like its rear-facing camera that is only 2MP and the absence of Radio.

The good thing is, it still comes with Java and GPS.

In terms of performance – especially for playing games -, i think Acer Iconia Tab A200 must still be considered as pretty good, if not good of course.

It still handles many graphics intense games like Modern Combat 1 & 2, Asphalt 5, PES 2012, Samurai Showdown or Dungeon Defender.

But of course, when handling games like Asphalt 8: Airborne, GTA San Andreas or Modern Combat 4, i don’t think this tablet is capable to perform in smooth performance even in medium graphics setting.

Acer Iconia Tab A210

Acer Iconia Tab A210Another interesting tablet from Acer is Acer Iconia Tab A210.

Unlike the one aforementioned above, Acer Iconia Tab A210 is powered by Tegra 3 quad-core processor, accompanied by 1GB of RAM and 12-core GeForce ULP GPU.

So basically, with this type of hardware specification, not to mention its medium-resolution 720p display – which is a perfect match for its Tegra 3 processor -, this tablet surely is more than capable to handle many latest graphics intense games like Asphalt 8: Airborne, Modern Combat 4, NOVA 3, GTA Vice City or Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Even GTA San Andreas will also perform well on this device, but definitely not in full highest graphics.

When it comes to specs, Acer Iconia Tab A210 is actually still not a huge departure from Acer Iconia Tab A201.

They both tablets share the same 720p resolution on their 10.1-inch display, the same 2MP camera on the back without LED flash, 3260mAh power battery, 1GB of RAM, microSD card slot for up to 32GB, 16/32GB of internal storage and a couple of standard features like GPS, Java, etc.

So the only upgrade that Acer makes on this device is actually only on its processor – along with the GPU of course.

Not to mention, this tablet comes with much newer build of Android software, compared to Acer Iconia Tab A201 - the predecessor.

Overall, i personally think that Acer Iconia Tab A210 is still a decent tablet, especially as media-consumption or gaming tablet.

It handles many latest 3D games perfectly and thanks to Acer’s decision to only equip this device with 720p display, its performance will likely be as fast as other Tegra 3 tablets with 720p display, like Google Nexus 7 or HP Slate 7 Plus.

Acer Iconia Tab A500

Acer Iconia Tab A500Another Tegra 2 tablet is coming from Acer. And it is Acer Iconia Tab A500, a 10.1-inch tablet sporting the 720p resolution.

Compared to one other Acer’s tablet i’ve shown you in the beginning, it’s really obvious that Acer Iconia Tab A500 is more superior than its sibling, in terms of specs.

Even though they both sport the same Tegra 2 processor and 10.1-inch 720p display, Acer Iconia Tab A500 is still a better performer when it comes to camera department.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 2Acer Iconia Tab A500 comes with a 10.1-inch display (1280x800 pixels), a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8-core GeForce ULP GPU, a 5MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, 2MP camera on the front to do selfies, microSD card slot for up to 32GB, 16/32GB of internal storage, Android v3.0/3.2 out of the box (which can be upgraded to ICS), 3260mAh power battery and a couple of standard features.

Too bad this tablet has been discontinued by Acer since long time ago. So you’ll probably have a hard time finding this tablet in your country right now.

Acer Iconia Tab 510

Acer Iconia Tab 510Another Tegra 3 tablet is made by Acer. And it is Acer Iconia Tab 510.

Compared to the Acer Iconia Tab 500, this tablet is definitely a huge upgrade from the previous-gen model, especially when it comes to specs.

It may still inherit the same 10.1-inch display with 720p resolution, the same 5MP camera with LED flash, microSD card slot for up to 32GB, 16/32GB of internal storage or 1GB of RAM, however, with the upgrade to Tegra 3 processor and larger 9800mAh power battery, you might want to consider picking up this tablet instead of Acer Iconia Tab 500, especially if you are a gamer.

When it comes to gaming performance, it’s no brainer that Acer Iconia Tab 510 will definitely excel on that sector perfectly.

Many latest and graphics intense games like Dead Trigger, Modern Combat 4, NOVA 3, Need for Speed Most Wanted, GTA Vice City and even Asphalt 8: Airborne, all will run in buttery smooth performance and of course in full highest graphics – although the Asphalt 8 doesn’t run that smooth in full highest graphics, but still playable.

Overall, i personally think that Acer Iconia Tab 510 is still a decent quality tablet, especially as a media-consumption device or even gaming tablet.

The best thing about this tablet is definitely its huge 9800mAh power battery, ensuring an all-day-long battery life, even in heavy use.

Acer Iconia Tab 700

Released with a much higher model name, Acer Iconia Tab 700 could probably be the one you should pick up, especially if you’re looking for a decent media-consumption or even gaming tablet.

Compared to the last tablet i mentioned above - Acer Iconia Tab 510 -, this tablet has so many upgrades done on its hardware.

First of all, its 10.1-inch display is now bumped up to 1080p (1920x1200 pixels) – as opposed to the 720p display on Acer Iconia Tab 510 -, giving a much better experience to users.

The display of this tablet may be the only upgrade that Acer does on this model, but i think this is more than enough to tempt people to pick up this device given that 1080p display on 10-inch tablet is still considered as 'flagship' quality display in today's standards.

The rest of the specs of Acer Iconia Tab 700 actually are not that different compared to Acer Iconia Tab 510.

It still has the Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz per core – which is higher than Acer Iconia Tab 510, probably due to the upgrade from 720p to 1080p resolution -, 1GB of RAM, 12-core of GeForce ULP GPU, 5MP camera on the back with LED flash, 2MP front-facing camera, 9800mAh power battery, microSD card slot for up to 32GB, 16/32/64GB of internal storage options and a couple of other similar elements.

As far as the performance goes, i think this tablet is gonna be as fast and smooth as Acer Iconia Tab 510 given that Acer has set a much higher 1.3GHz clock speed on its Tegra 3 processor.

So basically, it’s still fast and smooth as other Tegra 3 tablets with 720p display.

However, when it comes to gaming performance, i don’t think this tablet will be as great and fast as other counterparts out there, especially when handling games like Asphalt 8: Airborne, GTA Vice City or Modern Combat 4.

But overall, i still think that this tablet is a decent quality tablet, especially as a media-consumption device.
