EverunnotebenchmarksIt could be true based on the CrystalMark benchmarks that Everun provided to UMPC Portal. I just checked the numbers against the ones I ran on my Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium and the Everun Note shows significant potential. Bear in mind that Everun ran the testing, not a third party; I’ll be more interested when the product actually gets some play time and testing outside of the Everun labs. ;)

Regardless, these are impressive numbers for a UMPC. It certainly helps performance when you tuck a dual-core AMD Turion 64×2 1.2 GHz CPU in there. What will that high-power do for run-time? Everun says three hours on the 19.2 W/hr battery, but I’ll go out on a limb and suggest that as tested in the benchmarks, the device will see two hours at most. That remains to be seen until we see more information of course, but I don’t recall the Turion 64×2 being a power sipper. Steve should have his hands on a test device in the near future, so I can’t wait to see his experience.

  1. Seeing these results make me want this device even more (September can’t come any sooner)

    One thing though, the hard drive performance seems to be the only downer in this preview results, I wonder if they did this with the 60/80GB Hard drive or the 12GB SSD?

    And for that matter, I hope this device doesn’t get too hot during long usage.

    Also pray that the keyboard is at least better than the original Eee PC 701

  2. I am impressed. I wonder what the price is going to be.

  3. im not surprised. my tx2000 running at 800mhz gives me 29000 and running at 2ghz is close to 70000.

  4. Am I missing something? It’s being billed as a UMPC and not a micro-laptop or tiny-notebook? Don’t UMPCs have to have touch or digitizing screen and be operable in slate mode?

    Either I missed something, or these terms changed when I blinked.

    bluespapa: the original Origami Project spec called for the attributes you mention, but not all UMPCs are Origami “devices”. It’s poor, confusing naming for sure.
