Performance of Surface RT compared to a Windows 8 Core i5 tablet

RWalrond has posted a series of videos comparing the performance the developer Samsung Core i5 Windows 8 tablet vs the Windows RT Microsoft Surface tablet with an NVidia chipset.

While the presenter does repeatedly say the performance of the Surface tablet is close to that of the Core i5 tablet, I think it is clear than the Intel chip is outperforming the ARM chip, so if you prefer performance over battery life a Windows 8 tablet is the clear choice over an ARM tablet.
