Benchmark Results: Synthetics
The numbers are pretty much what we expected, confirming AMD's earlier claims of increased performance relative to its Nile platform. For some odd reason, there was no productivity score reported in PCMark Vantage for the E-350, but we're chalking this up to a driver anomaly. We're looking at pre-production hardware here, after all.
Given the E-350's integrated memory controller, we expected similar memory bandwidth compared to the previous Nile platform. AMD is still holding back details and we need more time to test, but it seems that much of the performance benefit seen from this platform comes from lower latencies between subsystems, and not higher memory throughput.
