AMD C-50 chip gets benchmarked in Toshiba’s new NB550D netbook
Toshiba’s NB550D netbook is the first 10 inch to ship with the AMD C-50 Fusion chip containing integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics. The chip is capable of 1080p HD video playback and DirectX 11 graphics, but what we don’t know is how the 1 GHz dual core chip fare against the Intel Atom chips. Netbook News picked up a unit in Taiwan and today the site published some of the first benchmarks.
Here’s a quick summary:
- Total power consumption (TDW) of the AMD C-50 is 8W The Intel Atom N550 uses slightly more @ 8.5w.
- 1889 in 3DMark06.
- In the CrystalMark benchmark, the NB550D scored a little higher than an Acer netbook with an Intel Atom N550 chip
- 3D video games (including Crysis) played smoothly.
