Zotac NM10-DTX Motherboard
WinRAR's embedded Benchmark focuses on the processor's File Compression capability. During day to day computer usage, file decompession and compression are two very important functions. Let's see how our Atom system performs.
Given the specification of the Atom CPU, these results are satisfactory. We're also pleased to see Hyperthreading in action, offering a Multithreading speedup of just over 2.30x.
Cinebench is a popular image rendering benchmark. Known for it's multithreading ability, this will surely be an interesting means of testing this dual core and hyperthreading capable Atom.
Large scale image rendering is certainly not a sensible application for the Intel Atom CPU and this was quite obvious by the time it took to finish the task at hand. Regardless, it performed reasonably well and offered a stonking 2.80x computational speed-up. Again, the D510 took a reasonable lead over the ION-ITX-F's N330 CPU.
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC.
The Memory Bandwidth test will closely examine memory transfer rates.
The relocation of the memory controller to the CPU and the increased base frequency has resulted in an impressive performance boost over the ION ITX-F/Atom N330.
Hard Disk Performance
Another pleasing finding is the NM10 Chipset's competitive SATA performance. At an average Read Speed of 90.2MB/sec, it is right on par with desktop P55/H55/SB750 southbridges.
