C'T has published some new TM5600 benchmarks. Sony's new Vaio notebook uses 10W per hour to power 128 Mb of RAM (112 Mb useable), a 12 Gb Hard-drive, an ATI Rage Mobility Gfx controller and a 9 inch display (resolution: 1024 x 480). This compares with 15-22W for a normal notebook with a bigger display. Intel's Pentium III was usually 50 percent faster at a given frequency, but sometimes virtually no faster and sometimes twice as fast. Code-morphing's impact was measurable: some programs (Quake III and pov run on desk.pov) ran 10-20 percent faster the second time they were run.
