Sapphire Edge VS8 Mini-PC reviewed - Futuremark benchmarks

Review: Better performance



A quick note on Futuremark benchmarks: 3DMark 11, 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark06 and PCMark 7 are compatible with Windows 8 when using the latest SystemInfo component. These benchmarks prompt you to install new SystemInfo updates or you can download and install SystemInfo yourself from the Futuremark website.

3DMark 06

The HD7600G was the fastest in the 3DMark06 test and as we can see it is twice as fast as the HD6320G used in Brazos chips. 3DMark 06 proves us that AMD's new Trinity APU graphics core is very good for thin-and-light notebooks or Mini-PCs. Of course, it is not as good as discrete graphics, but let’s keep things in perspective. It will wipe the floor with any Atom or Brazos system and that’s what counts in the nettop world.

PCMark7

The PCMark7 gives the Edge VS8 a slight edge (pardon the pun) against other mini-PCs that we had a chance to test. The faster and better GPU helped the VS8 take the lead against the Edge HD4 which is based on dual-core Celeron 847. However, in CPU intensive PCMark7 tests the HD4 was quite a bit faster, which is surprising.
