Asus 23.6" ET2410 All-In-One PC Review

SiSoft Sandra & CineBench

We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, Memory Bandwidth, Physical Disks).
 
Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA
Synthetic Benchmarks

   

Intel's Core i3 2100 processor isn't a barn burner by any means, and that's highlighted in our Sandra benchmarks. This is a dual-core chip stuck at 3.1GHz (no Turbo support) with just 3MB of cache. That's perfectly fine for day-to-day tasks and some multimedia chores, but short of the kind of performance we'd expect from an $850 machine.

   

The ET2410 fared a bit better in Sandra's memory and physical disk benchmarks. With 4GB of DDR3-1333 RAM in a dual-channel configuration, the test system pulled down 15.64GB/s in aggregate memory performance, which is right on par with where it should be. The 7200 RPM hard drive performed as expected too.

Cinebench R11.5 64bit
Content Creation Performance

Maxon's Cinebench R11.5 benchmark is based on Maxon's Cinema 4D software used for 3D content creation chores and tests both the CPU and GPU in separate benchmark runs. On the CPU side, Cinebench renders a photorealistic 3D scene by tapping into up to 64 processing threads (CPU) to process more than 300,000 total polygons, while the GPU benchmark measures graphics performance by manipulating nearly 1 million polygons and huge amounts of textures.

As is the case time after time, Cinebench makes a mockery out of our test system, indicating that this isn't a workstation class machine (in case there was any doubt). So why do we keep running it? Well, we're looking forward to the day when a consumer system slaps Cinebench silly; we've even been practicing our Nelson (from the Simpsons) laugh. Today is not that day.
