Current Phones priced relatively low input are not equipped with components that date. Sony has opted for an Intel Core i3-2310M dual core processor platform Huron River (chipset: HM65). Studibook for "The central component of the SB series is a favorite entry-level and offers a clock speed of 2.1 GHz and 3 MB L3 cache. Ignore Hyper-Threading support (child of 4 ), lack Turbo-Boost is a downside. The largest dual-core brethren, like the Intel Core i5-2410M (50 euros in the configuration), support this feature very useful and are generally a little more expensive.

Similarly, the display and the processor options, video does not ruin the choice of buyers. Inside, there is a combination of integrated Intel GMA 3000 HD graphics processor, and dedicated to the AMD Radeon HD 6470M entry-level segment of the current average. With 512 megabytes of memory and a clock frequency of 800 MHz and 900 MHz memory speeds, this should also count on casual players. What is unfortunate is the fact that Sony has chosen to change the graphics from the units via a slider above the keyboard. Other manufacturers already use automated solution PowerXpress 4.0 alias Bacon, that is an alternative to Nvidia Optimus. On the other hand SB2L1E / W is stored in the current difficulties in the beginning is the AMD solution.

Let's get our complete current reference. To begin the benchmarks are CPU Maxon, during which the Intel Core i3-2310M dual core processor has to prove himself. Cinebench R10 tested using the calculation with a single cable (64-bit only) the results of the 3469 CPU points, placing it in the middle range of our database. Depending on the settings comparable (eg, HP EliteBook 4530) Intel Core i3-380M is ahead of a similar level of performance.

While multi-threading rendering the average performance continues, and devices like the Acer Aspire 3750 Intel Test! 2011 pool device, or Dell Inspiron 15R is also in the region of 7519 points obtained. A built-SB1Z9EB Sony Vaio with an Intel Core i5-2520m or less i5-2410M is faster than 25.8% (10,128 points) and 20.4% (9451 points) better performance, respectively. In light of the improved performance and 2.0 Turbo Boost Technology Support, we recommend a look at Intel Core i5-2410M, in our opinion, even if the tested processor is obviously not have any problems with desktop applications or multimedia.
