Application Performance

The Z68 Mini-ITX system took only 11.43 seconds to complete the Excel 2010 workload, which was about 35% quicker than the A75/A8.

Our custom WinRAR compression test strongly favored the Intel platforms with the Core i3 taking 130 seconds to complete the 700MB compression test. That's 42% faster than the quickest A75 solution in our test, which finished in 225 seconds.

When testing with Adobe Photoshop CS5, the Z68M-ITX/HT and i3-2120 was only 11% faster than the A75M-ITX and A8-3850.
