 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:
