ASUS K50IN Series Notebook
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a notebook. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers as it's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. A test of 8 million iterations was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest times removed from the results and an average calculated from the remaining three.
Although the K50IN is certainly no powerhouse, it still manages to make mincemeat of the Acer 7220G in the Sandra results. Of course, this is pretty much to be expected considering that the ASUS has a faster processor and more memory. The tables are turned however when we move on to the slightly outdated SuperPI results where the Acer actually manages to trounce the ASUS by several minutes in an 8M run. This can only be attributed to the additional 2MB of L3 cache on the Acers T7300 CPU.
