CineBench 10/11 and LAME MP3 Encoding
CineBench 10
This rendering benchmark based off of the Cinema 4D engine is a terrific indicator for multi-threaded processing.

The single threaded results show that the AMD Bobcat core is much more effective than the Intel Atom architecture as not only does it perform nearly twice as fast but it does it using less power.  With the full threaded test the Atom D510 is able to catch up somewhat thanks to its use of 4 threads (two HyperThreaded cores) to the AMD E-350s 2 threads.


CineBench 11

Our first result that shows some of the graphics processing power of the E-350 APU, the CineBench 11 OpenGL test puts the MSI board ahead of the reference design (no doubt because of driver improvements) and well ahead of the aging NVIDIA ION chipset. 


LAME 3.97a MT MP3 Encoder 

This version of the LAME MP3 encoder is multi-threaded and takes advantage of two threads.

MP3 encoding performance between the AMD E-350 and the Celeron SU2300 is about equal but the Atom D510 falls WAY behind.
