10 – ASUS Eee PC 1215B: Direct3D 11 performances

For testing the performances of the HD 6250, I used 3DMark 11 in Performance mode: 1280×720 fullscreen. The score details are available HERE.

P4235, ASUS GeForce GTX 560 DC2 TOP
P1868, ASUS Radeon HD 6670
P194, ASUS EeePC 1215B, AMD C-50 CPU @ 1000MHz + HD 6250



I also tested the AvP benchmark (DX11, tessellation). The average framerate was 5 FPS at the native resolution (1366×768). For comparison, a Radeon HD 6670 running the benchmark at full HD resolution has an average FPS of 20.

    @MagicCPU, well i have an Acer notebook with one of those APUs( C350 1.6GHz x2/HD6250 ) and i’m very pleased with it, sure you won’t play crysis, but CSS, WOW, some other not so “heavy” games it will run smoothly.

    It’s been like 3 days I’m looking for a netbook for my 12 year old niece. Initially I was inclined towards a typical 15.6” laptop with DVD-RW drive, where a bigger screen is a plus. But after considering related disadvantages (a DVD drive is easy to break, these things in laptops are prone to damage, children are children after all) I set my mind on a netbook.
    1) With same resolution the screen around 12-13” makes the whole computer significantly lighter.
    2) Longer battery life.
    3) More portable, easier to carry around. I think my niece will be able to take it on her abroad trips with classmates. Certainly a 12-13” netbook is preferred over 15.6” laptops when it comes to weight.
    So, I looked at Lenovo S205, x121e, E325, Acer AO722 and wasn’t convinced. Asus 1215B that’s currently on sale in my favorite webstore comes with AMD E-450 CPU, 500 GB HDD but only 2 GB RAM (hope it’s easy to upgrade). However, the case in silver color looks very stylish. HDMI and USB 3.0 are most welcome, but I’ve read in another review about grainy images takes by built-in 0.3 MP webcam. I think it’s important because skype is definitely #1 for teens and video chatting is damn cool. I don’t want my niece to look grainy on computer screens of her mates! 😉

    How about touchpad? There are owners out there speaking about ‘glitching’ touchpad and so they have to use a mouse instead. There is a workaround, but it voids warranty. Some people bring it to asus service center.
    Also, I came across reviews describing wi-fi performance as mediocre, like 70 Mbp/s at most which is far from what N standard lets to achieve.

    How is the Ubuntu compatibility? Are things like wireless and audio detected? How much tweaking did you have to do to get Ubuntu 11.10 fully operational?
    Thanks!
