The Lenovo ThinkPad X100e and Asus Eee PC 1201T both have 1.6GHz AMD Neo MV-40 processor and ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics processors. So you’d think they’d perform pretty much the same on most benchmarks. But it’s not just the CPU and GPU that determines a computer’s performance, as the folks at YugaTech recently discovered.
For instance, the two computers have different memory clock speeds and different hard drives. And while they both have ATI Radeon HD3200 grpahics processors, the Eee PC 1201T has 256MB of video memory while the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e has 336MB of video memory.
And those differences seem to have affected each computer’s score in the PassMark benchmark, with the Eee PC 1201T coming out ahead in the 3D and 2D graphics benchmarks and the memory test, but straggling behind in the hard disk test.
