TEST RESULTS

CPU Performance



The Celeron N2930 is similar to the N2815 found inside the Asus X200MA netbook. It has the same clock speeds (1.86~2.13 GHz) but twice as many cores and double the cache as well. Thus, it performs slightly better in single-threaded applications overall, and blows the N2815 away in multithreaded encoding applications. The more common desktop Bay Trail chip, the J1900 (2.0~2.4 GHz) is noticeably faster.

To compare overall CPU performance, an equally-weighted score has been applied to each benchmark, with a total of 100 being assigned to the ML100G-10 as a reference point. In our test suite, the N2930 is about 23% faster than the N2815 thanks to its quad core architecture and larger cache, and 17% slower than the J1900 primarily due to differences in clock speed.

As for subjective performance, I have no complaints as it's very responsive with no noticeable lag compared to systems with higher-end hardware. When it comes to day-to-day operations, having a quad core processor and an SSD makes up for the slower underlying CPU architecture.

GPU Performance

The N2930 features Ivy Bridge class Intel HD Graphics but with only four EUs (execution units) and a maximum clock speed of 850 MHz, it's basically the lowest tier of integrated graphics you can get in a system with modern hardware. This is fine for a system meant for industrial use though.

SSD Performance

The Transcend MSA370 solid-state drive Logic Supply ships with the ML100G-10 isn't exactly a high-end model. A quick test with CrystalDiskMark reveals fairly disappointing performance with 512K block sizes, both with sequential and random data. It's no match for a mainstream 2.5 inch SSD like the Crucial MX100, but like the integrated GPU, there really isn't a need for high performance in this area.
