Internet Performance

We resorted to Futuremark peacekeeper test to compare the testing participants during most typical type of nettop usage (according to Intel): Internet surfing and web-sites browsing. This test measures the browser performance during web-page rendering. All tests were performed using two most popular Internet browsers: Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox 3.6.

As we see, Atom D510 delivers about 15% performance advantage to the Pine Trail platform. However, Peacekeeper test only measures the rendering speed of those web-pages that use JavaScript and AJAX technology. At the same time, Flash technology is also very popular, but it is not taken into account in Peacekeeper test. So, we resorted to another benchmark to ensure that we cover all aspects here: PowerFlash Benchmark. It measures the performance of Flash algorithms. We ran the test in Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.

 

The results of the new Atom D510 processor look very decent against the background of the Atom 330. But objectively speaking, I have to say that any Atom processors are still not fast enough for Flash-applications. For example, we can clearly see that from the results in multi-user online 3D arcade game called TankiOnline:

Of course, Atom D510 is about 20% faster than its predecessor, but it is still insufficient for achieving acceptable fps rate even if we use a relatively low resolution.
