Praises and Complaints

The performance of the Intel Centrino 1.6ghz mobile Banias processor is excellent. For example I ran a benchmarking program that calculates Pi (you know, that special math number, 3.14…) to the millionth decimal point. The processor crunched this calculation in an amazing 1 minute flat. Why amazing do you ask? Because my gaming desktop (AMD Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.2ghz / 512mb ram) crunched the same calculation in 48 seconds.

This may be arguable but how I see it, the AMD 64 desktop running at 2200mhz is 27.272% faster (In terms of Mhz) than the Intel Centrino laptop running at 1600mhz. The kicker is that the AMD 64 desktop only beat the laptop by 20% (in terms of seconds), which leaves a efficiency difference of 7.272%, which favors the Intel Centrino — this little processor packs a big punch!


Onto the keyboard and touch-pad, and other input/output ports. Next Page>>
