Watching Flash based High Definition video is often more tasking on a system than you'd be led to believe. Without Flash Player 10.1 which enables GPU acceleration, many systems would have otherwise ground to a halt. Let's see how our test setup performs here.

Unlike some of our previous Flash HD endeavours, we are pleased to report no issues. Using only the E35M1-M's hardware for this test, it was possible to playback 1080p video with less than 50% usage. The playback itself was fluid and without stutter.

 

Microsoft HD Video Suite

Microsoft's HD Suite contains a variety of 720p and 1080p video clips. We selected one 1080p Video Clip and gauged performance on the basis of CPU utilisation and fluidity.


Again, the E350 APU accomplishes it's mission without kicking up a fuss. Our FRAPS frame rate counter showed a consistent 60fps reading throughout.

 

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.

GPGPU Test

The GPGPU test leverages CUDA and OpenCL to determine the ability of today's stream processor based GPUs for general purpose computing. 

While synthetic benchmarks such as these aren't the best representative of actual performance, it is quite likely that the APU's HD 6310 GPU can take on nVidia GeForce GPU's with up to 32 CUDA cores.

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage is Futuremark's flagship "System Wide" benchmark. With a large focus on day to day operations, it's an excellent means of judging the capability of a computer as a whole.

 

We finish this set of benchmarks with another win for Team AMD in this system wide test.

AMD Fusion seems like the perfect choice for a HTPC, a few questions, is this capable of 3D? Also does it upscale well?Quote

Hi Zeals,

As the new HD 6310 GPU supports UVD 3.0, this means that DivX decoding is now included (on top of the existing MPEG2/H.264) and also Blu-Ray 3D support. However neither Asus or AMD have clearly stated that the HD 6310 will decode 3D well. I suppose this will become more clear as time goes on however my initial impressions are that a HTPC for higher end functionality such as 3D support or anything else that may command some more CPU horse power is probably better off with a conventional CPU and dedicated GPU.

I hope that helpsQuote

Go for it bro!

Pros: you'll have the coolest running 18W CPU on the block. WooHoo! Bragging rights.

Cons: You'll probably need to work on the mount - I don't see the usual AM3 hardware on that board. And do you figure £150 or more on a full-tower case to accommodate the Noctua is about right for a rig like this? An HAF-X or a Lanboy Air would be quite stylish.
