Results: 3DMark and PCMark
The major reason to benchmark similar platforms is to look for trouble spots. When we don’t find any, we really don’t have much to say. Our 3DMark 11 results, for example, look equally terrible on all three motherboards, and the situation gets even worse in 3DMark Professional. Although the 600 MHz Radeon-branded graphics engine sporting 128 shaders sounds like it could be moderately capable, this isn't a platform you'd want to do much gaming on.
PCMark is a fairly good test for the “performance feel” of a storage subsystem. Even though our benchmarks don't run very fast, the Kabini APU’s integrated SATA 6Gb/s controller does a great job of facilitating quick transfer from our Samsung 840 Pro SSD.
Why not throw a mid-ranged discreet GPU in there and see what happens? It's all we really want to know. Otherwise this platform is for strictly 2D flash games.
Just because the technology is the same, it doesn't mean that it well perform on par with the PS4.
