During our Bay Trail Reviewer's Day in Santa Clara, CA the day before IDF 2013 began, we got a chance to see how Intel is trying to help improve the overall user experience of their mobile devices. These experiences will range across all kinds of devices from Ultrabooks and Tablets all the way down to smartphones. They test devices that they make themselves as well as their own OEM partner devices that utilize their processors. After all, if they help their OEMs make better devices then they will sell more chips to them.
The day itself started out with Ronen Zohar and Francois Piednoel giving us some tips on benchmarking Bay Trail and what we should expect over the course of the day. Their goal was to make sure that we were benchmarking the devices for experience, unfortunately for us, we don't have anywhere near the awesome gear that they were about to show us. If you're curious about the initial performance benchmarking of Bay Trail, we posted a separate story

Following the chats, we got to benchmark the tablets
and gather up our ideas of the overall performance of the devices.
After that, we were taken to the power lab to demonstrate how the tablets performed under certain scenarios with each tablet being very closely monitored for power draw. They also used headphones to give a fair experience for all of the tablets in terms of power draw done by each tablet while playing music. They even had a fake ear setup with a very expensive decibel meter to measure the exact volume output of the headphones.
On the next page, we take a tour of the actual User Experience Testing Lab.
