AMD Brazos Platform Benchmarked – Zacate E-350 1.6GHz APUTue, Nov 16, 2010 - 12:00 AM
PCMark Vantage is the first objective hardware performance benchmark
for PCs running 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista.
PCMark Vantage is perfectly suited for benchmarking any type of
Microsoft Windows Vista PC from multimedia home entertainment systems
and laptops to dedicated workstations and hi-end gaming rigs. Regardless
of whether the benchmarker is an artist or an IT Professional, PCMark
Vantage shows the user where their system soars or falls flat, and how
to get the most performance possible out of their hardware. The PCMark
Vantage benchmark was run in 64-bit mode for the results shown below.
Benchmark Results: PCMark Vantage is a great benchmark if you have the same hard drive on all of the test systems, but that isn’t the case here. The Zacate E-350 APU has a respectable score and isn’t that much slower than the popular HP DV4-1555DX notebook that runs an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 processor at 2.53GHz. The Zacate E350 APU runs at 1.6GHz, so to be this close is a great sign. Notice that in the gaming test the Zacate E-350 was faster than all of the other notebooks with integrated graphics.
