Lenovo IdeaPad U260: A Stylish Ultralight Notebook

SiSoftware Sandra & Multimedia Benchmarks

We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2011, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran three of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Multimedia, Memory Bandwidth, Physical Disks). All of the scores reported below were taken with the processor running at its default speed.

Sub-System Performance Tests

First up we have the CPU Multimedia processor performance module. Higher scores equal better performance.

Next up we have the Memory bandwidth performance module. Once again, higher scores are better.

Here we have the Physical Disk performance test. And again, higher scores equate to better performance.

Though not a complete power-house, from a processing and memory performance standpoint, the U260 offers reasonably good horsepower, especially for a machine its size.  The only shortcoming we would have rather seen a bit snappier, would be hard disk performance, where the U260's stock 5400RPM drive only offers about 62MB/sec of throughput on average.
