Performance Pondering

The Intel Atom processors mostly have similar performance, so we don't expect to see great differences in the benchmark scores. To give you a rough idea of the Shuttle X50 AIO's performance, we've thrown in hardware of very similar configuration from our review of the Intel 945GCLF2 mini-ITX motherboard kit (integrated with an Atom 330 processor) and also the ASUS EeeTop (which uses a single-core Atom processor) for comparison.

From the PCMark05 performance, it's quite obvious that the Shuttle X50 doesn't fare any better than the Intel D945GCLF2 motherboard which uses the same Intel Atom 330 processor. It does however easily beat the ASUS EeeTop but there's not to big a gap between both machines. 720p HD video playback was also fine as can be expected of the dual core Intel Atom 330. This also bodes well when you factor in the 1366 x 768 screen resolution of the Shuttle X50.
