sandra-cpu-arithmeticCPU arithmetic scores are modest, though still respectable.

sandra-cpu-cryptographyCryptography throughput is quite respectable for a CPU that does not benefit from the new AES instruction set.

sandra-cpu-multicore-efficiencyMulti-core efficiency suffers somewhat, no doubt due to the bus sharing bandwidth with the GPU.

sandra-cpu-multimediaMultimedia performance on the CPU cores only also showed modest results.

sandra-cpu-power-management-efficiencyPower management efficiency was quite respectable, with an index of 1.38.

sandra-file-systemsFile systems performance was limited by the low power 2.5″ notebook hard drive, as expected.


Physical disk performance was as expected, with a boost over file systems performance that reflects the overhead that NTFS puts on disk transactions.

sandra-gp-bandwidthWhen the GPU core is brought into play, overall bandwidth improves drastically, though as expected it still lags behind discrete GPU performance.


Again, bringing the GPU into the mix improves cryptographic throughput by quite a bit.

sandra-gp-processingWith the GPU in on the task, image processing gets a much-needed boost.

sandra-media-transcodeMedia transcoding turned out somewhat poor on this machine, with an average throughput of 98kB/sec.


Cache and memory throughput came out about as expected, with an overall throughput of 8.64GB/sec.

sandra-memory-bandwidthMemory bandwidth came out at ~3.43GB/sec, doubtless dual-channel mode would improve this.

sandra-memory-latencyMemory latency came out surprisingly poor, at 161.7ns.

sandra-networkNetwork throughput over gigabit Ethernet was somewhat on the low side, with an average throughput of 6.9MB/sec.


Video memory bandwidth was about what you’d expect from an integrated GPU.


Video rendering came in at ~5.58MPix/sec, which is about average for an integrated GPU with less than 512MB of memory available to it.
