VIA EPIA M1000 Mini-ITX - Tiny yet Mighty - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and Sandra MAX3

When you think of Small Form Factor the first company you probably think of is Shuttle. Though, VIA Technology is another company up the top of the pack leading the new frontier with their EPIA Mini-ITX series.

Test System Setup

 

Due to the nature of VIA EPIA systems, it is hard to compare it to the super we have today. With a little bit of effort, we managed to compare it against was a 1GHz C3 system using a Socket 370 connector and a 32MB S3 Savage 4 video card that we had stored away, which is similar in design to the Unichrome architecture.

 

We used 256MB of PC133 in the Socket 370 system and 256MB of DDR-266 memory in the M1000 system. Since these CPU's are NOT designed for games but office and video playback, we have only included these into the benchmark suite today.

 

SiSoft Sandra MAX3

 

SiSoft Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) MAX3 is a synthetic windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

 

 

 

Here we see that VIA has improved the 1GHz system platform in the EPIA over the external version.
