Performance Comparisons with 3DMark06 v1.0.2
Details: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

To starting out our testing, we began with a focus on CPU performance, utilizing FutureMark 3DMark06's CPU performance module.





Naturally, the Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4 trails the comparison systems since it has the slowest processor of the three.  What is important to note is how the results scale.  In actuality, clock-for-clock the Satellite X205-SLi4 is the fastest of the three models.  If you divide the clockspeed by the scores, you will find that the Satellite scored .89 points per MHz while the Dell scored .85 and the ASUS C90S .865 points respectively.  It's not an exacting science, but a loose indicator of processor efficiency with each system.
