SBM 1: Low Cost System

Applications, Continued

We experienced some difficulty getting PCMark05 to complete the graphics benchmarks, so we couldn't get a total system score to compare. The WMV encoding test apparently has some problems on certain systems, but we'll see if we can get things running for our conclusion article.

The system and memory tests show results close to the 150% speed increase we've seen before. The hard drive test shows a 133% increase, which is certainly noteworthy.

Once again, pretty much every CPU benchmark shows the same 50% performance increase. Memory speed is even higher - around 160% of the previous system's performance - which might be due to the higher bus speed, and memory optimizations on the Asus P5K board.
