Intel Atom Z3770 Mobile SoC Gets Cinebench Tested
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Intel’s Silvermont Atom Z3770 has been tested in Cinebench by Intel’s Francois Piednoel and the new Intel SoC looks to have impressive performance. In Cinebench 11.5 the processor managed to score 1.47 points. Pretty impressive for a quad core 1.47GHz processor with a SDP of 2.5W (implying a TDP of around 4W). If you compare this to the AMD A4-5000 Kabini part detailed by ComputerBase then it is actually on par with it. Why is this impressive? Well the AMD A4-5000 Kabini APU has a 15W TDP – which is more than twice as much.
Of course what’s worth noting is that Cinebench is only one benchmark, and a very Intel-friendly one at that. It is also worth noting that the benchmark is run on Windows, and Intel is really targeting Android and the tablet/smartphone market. It will be interesting to see whether or not the Atom Z3770 stands up to its competitors in a more extensive array of benchmarks on a variety of operating systems when it is released. Until then we know how well it performs in Cinebench, but that doesn’t mean a whole lot. We also don’t know how it will perform against AMD’s HUMA/HSA enabled APUs scheduled for a release in the near future. One thing’s for sure though and that is that competition is really hotting up between AMD and Intel in the mobile space.
