AMD E-350 vs Intel Atom D525+ION2 - E350M1/USB3 board

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review:
Intel Atom is still dead




The ASRock E350M1/USB3 board

It's essential the same board as the previous tested E350M1 with the difference that it consists of two USB 3.0 ports and now all capacitors are solid ones.

The backpanel is ASRock standard with a useless PS/2 port and equally obsolete VGA connector. Sorry folks, it just doesn't make sense to convert a digital signal into analog, which is then converted back to digital inside the monitor except if you are one of a handful of people still using CRT monitors. There would be also be space enough to fit two more USB 2.0 ports.

excuse me?

while i do like the benchmarks i don't like your conclusions AT ALL.
good thing you've added your results...

the E350 completely crushes both atoms in every benchmark other than dual threaded cinebench...

And i LOL'd at your conclusions the old atom uses 4Watts less in far cry. Sure, thats what the graph says, but the E350 accually doubles the 330's framrates. how can you honestly take that benchmark as a standard.

sigh...

maybe you should also add an efficiency score for far cry. that should be fun to watch you justify intel/nvidiass poor results there

AND YEAH this site clearly needs a PROOF READER! .. i read the sentence on first page thrice to understand that it actually is saying "512KB of Cache"

"The Atom D525 is clocked at 1.8GHz, has 2x 512MB 2nd Level Cache" LOL :D

I don't understand Gaming bench marks on hardware like this. No one ever going to play games Other then Warcraft on this kind of hardware.

Well it depends really... I'm getting a Fusion HTPC soon and since I'm not into console gaming (or any sort of gaming for that matter), I'm planning to install a few "oldies".

Of course, hardware won't be an issue for Worms or Angry Birds, but there's plenty of older games worth playing, for example some racing titles, fighting games, sports (mainly PES) - basically anything that can be fun with a couple of gamepads and a bunch of drunk people around...

I don't need a console, I just want to run some old, simple and silly games when I feel like it. :-)

LoL, in the last review I did not bother to include any games and many were outraged... So what is it what you want? If I do one game it's not ok, if I don't it's not ok either... make up your minds. ;-)

two week CPUs or CPU vs APU does not crash each other... While in WinRAR the difference is noticable (as a user) in any other application you won't notice. So there is no crushing involved. Crushing maybe a word to choose for the single-threaded performance which is still more important nowadays because most software besides games don't bother to utilize that potential. And something like Photoshop is a bit too much for such CPUs either. Even the x264 was just for the fun of it, not really to suggest to any user to do any encoding with it ;-)
