Venue 8 7000, Dell’s flagship tablet
Dell introduced to the world its Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet at the recent CES show in January and now this tablet has finally reached consumers, but is there room for another tablet in an already congested market ?
Dell certainly hopes so, because they have put good hardware together.
First its the most impressive feature of the Dell Venue 8 7000 is its a 2560×1600 OLED 8.4 touch screen with amazing pixel density of 359 ppi, beating iPad and Tegra tablets!
At the core the Venue 8 7000 relies on an Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core processor, derived at 22nm based Moorefield platform and Silvermont architecture somewhat common now at days, but runs at 2.3 GHz. Inside you will also find a LPDDR3-1600 controller as well the tablet comes with 2GB of memory.
The Graphics engine is powered by a PowerVR G6430 built into the Atom Z3580 die, with decent speeds of 457 – 533 MHz, nothing ground breaking as this puts the Venue 8 7000 in the middle of the pack, compared to NVIDIA’s Tegra lineup and Apple’s A8/A8X.
Now some bad news, the Venue 8 7000 only comes with 16GB, but here is hoping Dell releases a 32GB version pretty soon, as the Dell Venue 8 7000 has a subpar 8MP primary rear 720p camera, as well as a front facing 2MP camera.
Connectivity Features include:
- 1. USB 2.0 connection.
- 2. An Intel 7260 wireless controller that integrates 802.11ac at 1×1.
- 3. Bluetooth 4.0.
