WinRAR's embedded Benchmark focuses on the processor's File Compression capability. During day to day computer usage, file decompession and compression are two very important functions. Let's see how our Atom system performs.
The AMD Dual Core processor may have an edge in single core operation but the Atom's Hyperthreading Technology returns to save the day in this particular instance.
Cinebench is a popular image rendering benchmark. Known for it's multithreading ability, this will surely be an interesting means of testing this dual core and hyperthreading capable Atom.
A similar story is depicted in Cinebench, however AMD still retains a win overall.
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 Memory Bandwidth test will closely examine memory transfer rates.
Our experience with embedded systems in general is that memory bandwidth tends to be abysmal, however we found the E350 APU to output a new low with both Integer and Float throughput at less than 2GB/sec.
Hard Disk Performance
You needn't be a sad panda for long as the Hudson M1 chipset helps the AMD platform secure a win with HDD Read performance that matches full fat chipsets such as SB850 and the (ahem, faulty) P67 PCH.
We complement our memory and storage subsystem tests with a read test using HDTune. Hopefully the results correspond with SiSoft Sandra.
Indeed they do, as they show the Hudson M1's ability to keep one of today's Hard Disk Drives running at their optimum pace.
