3DMark Vantage, Left 4 Dead 2 and Valve Source Tests3DMark Vantage
A reliable and popular benchmark, 3DMark Vantage can provide a good insight into overall gaming performance of a system.
Despite our best attempts, the Atom D510 system would not complete even the most basic runs of 3DMark Vantage and since we didn’t test 3DMark06 on the AMD APU while we had it, this is what we were left with. Looking at the SU2300 and the E-350, the Intel CPU has a slightly better performance in that realm while the GPU on the AMD part is about 27% faster than the NVIDIA ION chipset.
Left 4 Dead 2
Again, the Atom core shows it’s ineptness for gaming – even running at 640×480 with EVERYTHING off the game refused to stay over 5 FPS. The AMD APU and the Intel CULV + ION system were running neck and neck.
Valve Source Particle Simulation
Valve released this particle simulation test a while back for benchmarking platforms and CPUs.
Valve Source Map Compilation
More of a developer test than gamer test, this benchmark is indicative of how long it takes a system to compile a map.
Oddly the Atom D510 does great on the multi-threaded physics test from Valve and the AMD E-350 takes the win in the map compilation scores.
i am curious to see E-350 in
i am curious to see E-350 in an other O.S with openCL sup.
