AMD's Kabini: Jaguar And GCN Come Together In A 15 W APU

Results: Productivity

This next test is a single-threaded workload that sees us take a PowerPoint presentation and print out a PDF file of it.

Unable to fully utilize its four cores, the 1.5 GHz A4-5000 gets worked over pretty bad. Perhaps 3ds Max can better-demonstrate the benefits of a quad-core APU.

We thought this might have been Kabini's chance to shine, but the higher-clocked dual-core Pentium scores a first-place finish.

The Core i3's Hyper-Threading capability is more of a boon in Blender. The A4 can't catch a break, though.

The same goes for ABBYY's FineReader OCR application.
