 Performance Comparisons with 3DMark06
 Details: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

The Futuremark 3DMark06 CPU benchmark consists of tests that use the CPU to render 3D scenes, rather than the GPU. It runs several threads simultaneously and is designed to utilize multiple processor cores.



The numbers say it all. This machine is just barely quicker in all of these tests than the Atom N450 processor. With Intel having well over a year to revamp the Atom, this minor bump in performance is somewhat of a letdown. To say that these increases cannot be felt in real-world use would be understating things, and it's pretty clear to us that the Athlon Neo MV-40 is the superior netbook chip for the moment, at least in terms of performance. The unit's full 3D Mark 06 benchmark is below:

well seems like someone needs to work harder :D. So basically they have better hardware but the performance did not really improve? The battery life on this thing is low and that's not a good point to be buying this thing... Lets see them do better!

The performance seem to be on par with everything else out right now. The flimsiness might play a major factor since this is designed mainly to be taken on the go. If the outer shell is that flimsy, the hinge will prove to be very short lived. As a tablet owner who takes extra care of that, It still fails after repeated use.
 
As far a s a tablet goes, Not having a stylus could be a real big annoyance. Since it is designed for on the go type computing people will start to realize that it is not easy to take continuous notes with your finger.

Under this page the Thinkpad x100e with AMD Neo is said to come with Intel x3150, which churns out an unprecedented 1059 3DMark06 score.

Amazing. Simply amazing. How did you tweak that chip to run at 7X speed like that? The boys at Intel should be so stoked.
