SiSoft Sandra Benchmarks and Multimedia Testing

Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA 2009
Synthetic Benchmarks

We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2009, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran three of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, and Memory Bandwidth). All of the scores reported below were taken with the processor running at its default clock speed of 1.3GHz with 4GB of DDR3 RAM.

The T135 may have fallen a bit behind some of the reference systems in one or two tests, but overall, it performed reasonably well for a system that's designed to be cool, quiet, and sip power.

To test multimedia capabilities, we attempt to play back a 720p WMVHD clip and a 1080p clip.

The T135's integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M GPU may not be much to brag about, but it did handle most of our multimedia tasks with relative ease. Playback during YouTube, Flash, 720p, and even 1080p videos weren't a problem—there were no skips or stutters.
