 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.



No surprises here; the 1.3GHz CULV processor can't hold a candle to the full-fledged Core 2 Duo chips in these other machines, but it actually fared pretty well when you consider that the Asus machine is significantly cheaper than either of those two options. Here's a look at the full 3DMark 06 score:
