MSI’s AM1I takes another small lead in Blender rendering. Not that anyone would wait ten minutes to render one frame. The threaded tests on this page all overshoot the target market of AMD's AM1 platform. Still, it's important that we establish just what the Athlon 5350 can do in these three motherboards.
The same AM1I falls slightly behind in Visual Studio 2010. This is one application where a platform that consumes roughly one-third the power of our mainstream parts produces more than one-third the performance. Hurray for efficiency!
