Since PCMark is a relatively new test, it’s a bit tougher to gauge performance. But from all of the indications that PCMark gave us, this laptop scored pretty well. Of course, it didn’t score as well as some of our desktop systems, but it still did quite good for the size and price. On battery powerPlugged in
With PCMark7 we saw a score of 955 when running on battery and a score of 1054 when running plugged in. That means that if you’re going to plan on doing HD media related activities you’re much more likely to experience better performance when plugged in. Granted, that’s reflected almost across the board on all laptops, in this case the difference was more than 10%.3DMark11
In 3DMark 11, we really didn’t know what to expect as this benchmark is primarily intended for gaming computers with serious graphics. In that case, we ran the Entry level test for 3DMark 11. After running 3DMark11 we got an interesting score of E435. Based on our findings, with comparable systems most scores were in or around 400.Cinebench R11.5
We also decided to run Cinebench in which we were somewhat disappointed in the performance figures that we saw compared to other systems we had run in the past. Admittedly, Cinebench isn’t exactly a measure of overall performance, but it still requires quite a bit of CPU power which the Brazos platform appears to be a little bit weaker than what we would’ve expected but still on par with lower power processors like the Atom chips and the like. Our single threaded performance figures were around 0.30 and our multi-threaded performance was between 0.50 and 0.60.
