Asus E35M1-M PRO Micro ATX
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC.
The CPU arithmetic test ascertains the processor's capabilities in terms of numerical operations. Two subtests named Dhrystone and Whetstone are carried out respectively. This is not a measure of latency and thus higher is better.
First benchmark in, the CPU Arithmetic test secures the AMD platform a rather clear victory. Is this a clear sign of things to come?
The CPU Multimedia Test focuses on CPU based operations that may occur during multimedia based tasks. The magnitude of the score depends on the processor's ability to handle Integer, Float and Double data types
Ahem, the plot thickens as the tables turn in a big way. Clearly the Brazos APU loses out in the aforementioned multimedia instructions.
AIDA Extreme Edition
Returning to its roots by re-estabilishing the AIDA name, the latest iteration of the popular benchmark suite now includes optimisations over previous editions. With this in mind, remember not to compare these results against those conducted with older Everest software.
CPU Queen is all about branch prediction and the penalties that, well "misprediction" can bring.
The Atom D510 wins again, with a fair margin. This is really not what we expected. That said, it is not unreasonable to expect the CPU Queen test to follow a similar trend to SiSoft Sandra's Multimedia benchmark.
PhotoWorxx as the name may suggest tests processors by means of invoking functions that are common to Photo Manipulation including Fill, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Difference and Colour to B&W conversion.
The E350 flexes its muscles with quasi photoshop operations. Neither platform are ideal for this but it is a clear win regardless.
This is an integer based benchmark that will test the CPU and Memory by means of the CPU ZLib compression library.
Wrapping up our AIDA64 benchmarks, the AMD E350 strikes back yet again. Next we will cover WinRAR and Cinebench performance followed by tests pertaining to the E35M1-M PRO's Memory and Southbridge subsystems.
