The Eee PC 1000HV is a new netbook from Asus available exclusively in Italy (for now). It looks almost exactly like the Eee PC 1000HE, which makes sense since for all intents and purposes it’s the same machine with one major difference: The Eee PC 1000HE has integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics while the Eee PC 1000HV has a discrete ATI Radeon HD 3450 graphics card.

Eee PC.it has published a handful of benchmarks from a user who has already picked up an Eee PC 1000HV. In most tests, the new netbook achieves the same scores as its predecessor, which makes sense since it has the same processor, hard drive, and other hardware. But it blows away the Eee PC 1000HE and pretty much every other netbook when it comes to OpenGL performance, with a score of 10,564, which is about 15 times higher than the scores found on most Intel Atom mini-laptops with integrated graphics.

The netbook is also the first Eee PC to make use of the High Definition Movie mode in the Super Hybrid Engine, which appears to overclock the CPU to its maximum settings to provide the best possible viewing experience when watching 1080p videos.

  1. ‘when watching 1080p videos’

    And these things don’t even have 720p displays.

    C’mon Asus, get with it… give us some higher resolution goodness. I’m sick of crying about it. I’ll pay.

  2. While I think it’s fantastic that netbooks are starting to get dedicated graphics cards, the problem is that streaming video still sucks because the CPU handles all the decoding. Even though the netbook has an awesome video card, Hulu and YouTube still choke on Atom processors and I’m assuming a lot more people will try and stream video with these things than try to play video games.

    As much as I was stoked for this day, now I don’t think I can buy a netbook until a dual core Atom or AMD Neo comes out that can play streaming video without stuttering.

  3. This is what I have been waiting to see for a while. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a fairly priced stateside launch.

  4. It would be nice if it came with both solutions, seamlessly switching from one to the other based on need.

  5. Me ‘likey’
    I hope we see others do this as well, providing better GPU performance in the netbook space. Yes, this solution must eats the battery, but it will show Intel they need to move on higher end graphics now. Either they do it or ATI or Nvidia will capture hearts and minds with their soluitions.
