 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.



Lenovo's ThinkPad X100e falls behind in the 3DMark 06 benchmark when compared to Atom-based machines that boast NVIDIA's Ion GPU, but notice how it crushes anotehr GMA 3150 system that uses an Atom processor. Credit the Athlon Neo and Radeon graphics for helping it keep pace here; there's no doubt that the GMA 3150 is a weak graphics unit, and the AMD processor / Radeon combo almost makes up for it and catches it up to other Ion-based systems. Impressive, we must say. The unit's full 3D Mark 06 benchmark is below:
