Developed by some folks from the University of Tokyo (yes, Japan), Super PI is a small utility that does just as the name implies. It figures PI to a set number of decimal places. Since PI is an infinite number to the right of the decimal point, the utility measures the time it takes to figure a set number of places. It runs the calculations a set number of times and gives a time for the completion of the task. This is a simple and effective way to measure the raw number crunching power of the processor being used to compile the results.

Here we see a similar story being painted, but things only get better with the ASRock Core 100HT-BD showing performance six times better than the Giada system and nearing five times better than the previous generation nettop from ASRock.
