Product and Performance Information

1

Estimated based on SYSmark* 2014, a system-level performance benchmark that measures and compares PC performance using real world applications. Find out more at www.bapco.com.

2

Calculated based on Intel® Core™ M-5Y70 processor with thermal design power (TDP) of 4.5W compared to Intel® Core™ i5-520UM processor with TDP of 18W. 

3

Measured using Microsoft PowerPoint* to PDF Conversion—to convert a 3.56 MB 200-slide Microsoft PowerPoint .pptx presentation to a 3.91 MB PDF file.

4

Measured using WebXPRT* 2013—a benchmark from Principled Technologies that measures JavaScript and HTML5 performance using web applications based on real world usages, like Photo Effects, Face Detection, Stocks Dashboard, and Notes. It produces results for each of the test scenarios plus an overall score. Intel is a sponsor and member of the BenchmarkXPRT* Development Community, and was the major developer of the XPRT family of benchmarks. Principled Technologies is the publisher of the XPRT family of benchmarks. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases.

5

Measured using Adobe Photoshop CC* 2014 Photo Editing—to edit a 19.70 MB, 36.3 megapixel, JPG photo taken on a DSLR camera. The "Colored Pencil" artistic filter is applied, and the effect’s width and brightness are adjusted and previewed.

6

Measured using Full HD Local Video Playback Battery Rundown—measured using Tears of Steel 1080p 3 Mbps H.264 video. Configuration: In the device settings, in airplane mode with wireless on. Disable Intel® Display Power Saving Technology (Intel® DPST), set up the system to 200 nits screen brightness using a full screen white background, and re-enable Intel DPST. Turn OFF the adaptive brightness setting under Power Options in Control Panel. Set "Dim the display" to never on both battery and AC. Set "Put the computer to sleep" to never on both battery and AC. Wait 15 minutes after boot. Launch the default video player (Windows* 8.1 Style UI video player for win), start the workload video in a loop, and disconnect the AC plug to start the test. Measure the time until battery is exhausted.

7

Estimated based on MobileMark* 2012 Office Productivity—a performance-qualified battery life application-based benchmark that reflects usage patterns of modern users.

8

Measured using 3DMark* Ice Storm 1.2 Unlimited—a 3D graphics benchmark that measures 3D gaming performance. Find out more at www.futuremark.com.

9

Measured using CyberLink MediaEspresso 7* HD Video Conversion—to convert a 6-minute, ~1 GB, 1920x1080p, 23738 kbps, MOV video file that one would have obtained from a smartphone. The file is transcoded to a smaller 1920x1080, 8 Mbps, H.264, .m2ts file for reduced file size during Internet transfers or for viewing on a portable device.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
