Mini HTPC Computers: Comparative Performance Charts

We tried a new benchmarking system for multimedia PCs from Intel called DHCAT (Digital Home Capabilities Assessment Tool). In summary we can say that the four mini HTPC computers performed pretty closely in line with the power of their CPUs. Check out the

We conducted some very simple 3DMark06 tests. With no anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering, we ran 3dMark06 on all four of our mini HTPS computers at display resolutions of 1024x768 and 1920x1200. As you might expect, the Shuttle XPC X100, with its disc

This test uses programs such as Acrobat, Word and PowerPoint. Better CPU and memory performance make for better scores as you can see here. The Shuttle may benefit a bit from its ATI graphics processor.

Data analysis using Access is both CPU and hard disk intensive; memory speed is also a factor. The top three scorers here have 7200 RPM drives, the Winbook's drive runs at 5400 RPM.
