General System Performance
PCMark, from the makers of the 3DMark series, tests various aspects of the system and reports the results back in a normalized score.
World Bench 5
World Bench runs the system through a series of real world benchmarking scenarios from video editing to multitasking. We’ll be looking at the individual scores on the coming pages.
This is a dramatic shift from the pervious page of benchmarks; here the T2600 and the Asus N4L-VM motherboard are able to make the race very competitive, with Intel’s processor just a single point behind in our WorldBench 5 test and actually winning in the PCMark05 CPU subtest.
