System performance

We've thus far looked at CPU and GPU performance. We can tie both together with a run of PCMark 7. This benchmark favours laptops equipped with an SSD. Even so, the Trinity ES does pretty well, grabbing a solid third place.

Power Consumption and Battery Life

 

Take these two graphs with a pinch of salt. The ES nature of the laptop makes power/battery figures semi-meaningless. Inferring somewhat, we reckon a well-tuned Trinity laptop equipped with a high-performance APU should provide between three and four hours of battery life. We'll know more when retail samples land with us, of course, but it seems, on first glance, that battery life is going to be average for this class of laptop.
