ASUS K50IN Series Notebook

CPU & Memory Performance

Sisoft Sandra  

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  

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.

Result Observations

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 The tables are turned however when we move on to the slightly outdated SuperPI results where the Acer actually manages to trounce the ASUS by several minutes in an 8M run.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.

You need a prize for "it felt like there should have been a handle on the side of the notebook to wind it up" as Line of the Week.

Excellent review and a handy little product for the price.
