To test the Sapphire EDGE-HD System today, we are using a wide selection of real world and synthetic tests, clearly labelled. If you are only interested in video quality and hardware performance we advise you to shift forward in the review to the real world and image quality sections.
We also felt it would be interesting to compare some of our findings against other low power systems we have reviewed before. We have therefore included results from a previous generation AMD Turion 64 X2 L510 clocked at 1.6ghz.
