OUYA Beaten In 3DMark By Most Modern Smartphones

OUYA developer James Coote has been running 3DMark for Android on the latest version of the OUYA development kit and things aren’t looking that great for the mini-console when comparing it to current generation smartphones. The video showing OUYA running 3DMark can be seen below and essentially the results are pretty good considering the hardware specifications of OUYA.
OUYA ranks number 73 in the Futuremark database for the IceStorm benchmark. On the face of it that doesn’t sound very good but the OUYA console is the third best Nvidia powered device coming behind just two ASUS tablets. All the over devices that rank above it feature Qualcomm Snapdragon Adreno GPUs, PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPUs or ARM Mali T604 GPUs.
The score of the OUYA console was 4077 3DMarks while we can see most modern high end smartphones easily beat this score doubling it or more in most cases; Samsung Galaxy S4 (9094 for Exynos version and 10790 for Qualcomm version), HTC One (10345), LG Nexus 4 (10198) and Sony Xperia Z (9163).
However, everything said the OUYA console costs $99 making it by far the cheapest option out of all the entries anywhere near and above the OUYA console in the Futuremark database.
What are your thoughts on the OUYA console’s performance? Will it be good enough to handle [proper] gaming?
