As Kabini is first and foremost a low power APU, we've focused more on 2D testing rather than gaming, although we have included one of our standard game benchmarks. We've limited the results to include comparable CPUs including a selection of embedded Intel CPUs plus a range of AMDs recent APUs. These should give a good indication of how Kabini fares compared to the competition, how much better-performing it is than its predecessor and where it fits in amongst the overall scheme of things.

Below is a list of the applications we've used for our testing:

  • 8GB (2x 4GB) G.Skill Ripjaw 1,600MHz DDR3 memory (CL9)
