After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Benchmarks - Real World
If you wish to run this benchmark manually you can do the following.
Pull down the console and type "playnettimedemo id_demo001", when complete pull down the console again to see your score.
Sadly the Winstone CC and Biz benchmarks finally gave up the ghost and would not run under Vista so while we wait for a suitable replacement to arrive we are skipping the application style benchmark and will focus on gaming and Xvid encoding. We did get a fairly good cross section of real world performance that illustrated how similar these systems really are.
