My new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is really slow :
- the apps menu is slow, looks like 15 fps or so
- crashes games like Riptide GP
- plays games like Angry Birds and Temple Run at some 20 fps
- music player list is also slow
I'll do a hard reset and flash the first custom ROM. Anyone else have the same problems ?

A hard reset will usually cure this issue, try resolving issue before rooting.

I was having the same problem with my Galaxy Tab 2 and did a hard reset. This seemed to fix everything and it is running AOK. I am going to keep it running stock for a while though, its nice and smooth now and I want to wait till there is a really good reason for me to root it. Not to mention I am still waiting on them to get the ROMs a little more fine tuned.

I am on the tab 2 7inch, and mine is not slow. I think it has the same internals as 10"

I'm running the sgrant "clean rom" v 1.1 and Apex launcher and it's smooth as butter, not to mention I got rid of the bloatware.

Question
I've moved to Infected ROM - better, but for gaming, it's the same. Can anyone confirm that they can run popular low-medium quality games like Angry Birds and Temple Run smoothly (60 fps) on a GT-P5113 ?

Mine is really slow too It's really not like the Ipad

It's more more slower than an Ipad but I use just to read comics and go on the internet.

I now run latest CM9 with OC kernel, but some older games like Drag Racing are still practically unplayable. Does anyone here have a good experience with this title especially ?

I had the same issue with my new Tab 2 10.1, which manifested itself after only a couple of days.

A bit of digging on the forums stated that it could be a rogue app that was installed, however I was unable to diagnose the offending app.

Perplexed and slightly annoyed I decided to install CM9 and have not looked back.

Thumbs up
I think it should because of the GPU & CPU speed of galaxy tab. As we know p5100 using an powervr GPU. NVIDIA Tegra should be better than powervr. But if you want to increase the speed of your tab try to use custom ROM and OC. Or you can sell your tab and buy a new lower price tab like Transformer, Motorola Xoom, or Sony S tablet which powered by Tegra GPU that could run the graphics smoothly
