Dan EE originally said the tablet IDed itself as the Nexus 9. I finally got curious about that and emailed him, because I didn’t see it in the About Tablet information.
It turns out I should have dug deeper. It’s in this screen:
More drama over at Weibo.

Apparently someone started a rumor Teclast was using “white label” chips. They refute that with a very, very detailed explanation — with photos — of the brand-name chips they’re using.
Antutu pulled down a score of 45013, just a little lower than the ZenFone 2. Understandable considering the higher resolution of the screen. The 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme benchmark managed a score of 7522, which is okay. It’s higher than you’d see in budget devices powered by the Snapdragon 615 or 410, but still not as good as the GPU in a flagship device. Note, I’m using the 4GB version of the tablet with the faster Intel chip.
Italics emphasis in original.
I expected an AnTuTu score in that range. At US$299, that’s a good score.
I’ve yet to encounter this version of the tablet in person, though, and look forward to finding a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 to compare with.
Meanwhile, after the break, some videos demonstrating the optional stylus.
