Archos 101 G9 Turbo 1.5Ghz for $279 at Woot.com today

Posted by Charbax on February 9th, 2012

It’s basically as powerful (or more powerful) than a Tegra3 tablet, but at nearly half the price. The normal MSRP price is $399 so this is a good deal! It’ll support Ice Cream Sandwich through an official firmware update probably coming later this month. Support for US-compatible 3G/4G/LTE USB sticks is probably also likely to soon be announced.

    Probably more powerful than a Tegra 2 but not a Tegra 3, not even in the same league.

    1.5Ghz Cortex-A9 pf OMAP4460 is faster than 1.3Ghz Cortex-A9 of Tegra3, and OMAP4 memory bandwidth is faster than Tegra3.

    1.5 ghz is in turbo, usually stay at 1.2 ghz which is slower than 1.3. the memory bandwidth is higher yes, but the difference is negligible

    Also a dual core omap 4 is very different from the quad core tegra 3, the omap 4 is limited to ddr 2  and pushed to the limit while tegra 3 uses ddr 2 and ddr 3, alot more efficient. The cpu speed is also almost even, the tegra 3 uses a 1.5 ghz single core to save power and turns it down to 1.4 ghz when it runs in quad mode compared to the dual core 1.5 ghz omap 4.

    Not true. Archos peaks at 1.5Ghz when peak is required, Tegra3 peaks at 1.3Ghz when peak is required. The memory bandwidth is higher on Archos yet the Archos is 40% cheaper than the Tegra3 tablet such as the Transformer Prime.

  • Beruli

    Everywhere that i have read, has tegra 3 peaking at 1.4ghz. To only compare the price on 1 tablet and say its 40% cheaper meaningless. tegra 3 is in more than 1 tablet, i just so happens that the prime was the first and most expensive.
