Our good friends at Cyberlink kindly supplied the software for our BluRay and conversion tests.
Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 is one of the finest solutions for the BluRay experience on Windows and we found this software to work perfectly with this chipset. We tested with the new Extended Bluray Disc of Avatar, one of our favourite sci-fi films in recent years.
The ASRock E350M1 system is capable of delivering a 4% lower CPU overhead with our BluRay testing. Not that noticeable under real world conditions, but it shows the added efficiency. The Atom D525 has the highest clock speed yet delivers the worst overall results.
These results are very impressive, with CPU demand moving from a minimum of 7 percent to a maximum of 27 percent.
