Using Apophysis, a special OCC fractal will be rendered at 2750x2048 with a quality of 500 and RAM usage limited to 512MB. A lower render time is better.
Geekbench's 'Benchmark' test suite will be used to obtain an overall system score. A higher score is better.
Bibble 5 will be used to convert 100 8.2MP RAW images to JPEG. Total conversion time was recorded in seconds. Lower conversion time is better.
PCMark7's default suite of system tests will be used to obtain an overall score. A higher score is better.
High scores and low times are abundant with the CoreHT-252B. What these show is that an i5 setup is three to six times as fast as a 'comparative' Atom based setup. Keep in mind that this is all using less than 95 Watts, which is the capacity of the included power brick. Mighty impressive.
