Performance

General Performance

As usual, we use SYSmark 2007 suite to estimate the processor performance in general-purpose tasks. It emulates the usage models in popular office and digital content creation and processing applications. The idea behind this test is fairly simple: it produces a single score characterizing the average computer performance.

From the previous Brazos tests we remember that AMD E-350 is similar to Intel Atom D525 in pure computational power. AMD CPU is a little faster in single-threaded tasks, while Intel Atom copes better with multi-threaded load. But as we see in SYSmark 2007, they have almost the same average performance in common everyday tasks, which do not reassign the workload to the graphics subsystem. It means that it makes absolutely no sense to compare AMD E-350 against Intel Core i3-2100T here. Energy-efficient AMD Bobcat microarchitecture can’t compete against Sandy Bridge, even when it is slowed down: AMD E-350 is almost four times slower.

However, it doesn’t mean that AMD E-350 doesn’t do well in everyday tasks. Overall, it is fast enough for typical office and internet applications. It experiences difficulties only during creation and processing of digital contents (images, video or music).
