Testing:

To test the ECS HDC-I, I will be running a series of synthetic and real-world benchmarks that will test the system's ability to process large files and run 3D video. For comparison, the HDC-I will be pitted against four other Mini-ITX media-focused boards — two ION platform boards (one Celeron, one Atom) and two E350 Fusion boards. Unless otherwise stated, all hardware is run at their stock speeds, latencies, voltages, etc., to prevent any outside interference.

 

Testing Setup:

  • Processor: AMD Dual Core E350 APU
  • Motherboard: ECS HDC-I E350
  • Memory: 2x 2GB Mushkin DDR3 1600MHz @ 1066MHz
  • Video Card: Integrated AMD Radeon HD 6130 Graphics Processor
  • Power Supply: OCZ 700W Power Supply
  • Hard Drive: 1x Seagate 750GB SATA
  • Optical Drive: Lite-On DVD+/-RW
  • Case: NZXT Phantom (with 1 case fan)
  • OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

Overclocked Settings:

The ECS HDC-I BIOS doesn't have any real overclocking features, so there will be no overclocked comparisons in this review.
