"Last week we featured a review on two MSI WindBox Atom 330
NetTops that we had purchased to add to our testing farm, which as
you may now know went into our Phoromatic Ubuntu Tracker setup that
is monitoring the performance of the latest Ubuntu development
packages on a daily basis. Before devoting this hardware to the
farm, we ran a few benchmarks comparing the performance of NVIDIA's
ION GeForce 9400M graphics processor to the ATI Radeon HD 4330
graphics processor found on the MSI 6667BB-004US and several other
"For the NVIDIA ION graphics performance we used an ASRock ION
330HT-BD Blu-ray NetTop with an Intel Atom 330 CPU, 2GB of system
memory, a Seagate 320GB ST9320325AS SATA HDD, and the GeForce 9400M
graphics. The Radeon HD 4330 testing was from the MSI WindBox with
an Intel Atom 330 CPU, 2GB of system memory at the time, a 250GB
Samsung HD253GJ SATA HDD, and the Mobility Radeon HD 4300 (ATI M92
LP) graphics. Both systems were running 64-bit snapshots of Ubuntu
10.04 with the Linux 2.6.32-15-generic kernel, GNOME 2.29.91, X.Org
Server 1.7.5, xf86-video-radeon 6.12.99, and the default EXT4
file-system. As the Nouveau graphics Gallium3D driver stack is not
used by default in Ubuntu, we ended up using the default NVIDIA
195.36.08 graphics driver for the NVIDIA testing in this article.
Compiz was enabled during testing and the Ubuntu OS installations
were left at their defaults."
