Ouya ranks poorly in benchmarks against other Android devices Benchmarking company Futuremark recently tested 258 Android devices.
Using their 3DMark benchmark tests, the Ouya came in 92nd place in performance, falling far behind newer flagship phones like the, Galaxy S4, Nexus 4 and HTC One and tablets such as the Xperia Tablet Z and Galaxy Note 8.

Of course, the test were run on the Kickstarter dev kits and really only test raw technical capabilities. The console uses a quad-core Tegra 3 T33.

The device raised almost $9 million from Kickstarter, but most reviews have claimed the dev models are not ready for retail. The retail boxes go on sale via retailers like Amazon in early June.

We all know the OUYA is not the most powerful Android device out there so what's the point of this article singling out the device?

One of the major points about the OUYA is it's price compared to other devices... something that deliberately keeps getting missed by the haters.

Virtually every console has underwhelmed on it's release... why does this repeatedly get conveniently forgotten???

This just comes across as white-anting or even astroturfing Andre.


Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

Ouya cost 99 bucks and most of those phones and tablets that beat it cost 400 and up !

What were you expecting a 99 console to beat all tablets and phones ??

Galaxy Note 8 cnet list as $399

Sony Xperia Tablet Z cnet list as $499

Even the title of this "article" is designed to make the $99 Tegra3 powered OUYA look bad... great job Andre... NOT!

Excellent white-anting there. What's your agenda? Did you just buy a new tablet? What the heck were you expecting from the OUYA? Normally this is a tech savvy site.
