‘Atom performance better than expected’

‘Great battery life’

’15mm keyboard pitch difficult’

Apart from the keyboard, which I’m prepared to adapt to if this baby performs, its getting better every day. This is definitely a ultra mobile PC and not a netbook!

Video from wowpow blog who haven’t announced this video yet so expect a new blog entry soon.

    Hi Brett. We’re watching closely ;-) Have linked to your article now.

    I can’t wait to see your review of the SC3 – it *looks* like the ideal UMPC to me.

    I currently have a Vye SP18+ (with 500Mhz AMD Geode), but while the size, keyoard, and screen are all perfect, the CPU really lets it down – the CPU is easily maxed out just by going to a website with a bit of flash, and so I have been waiting for a more powerful Kohjinsha for a while.

    Key question for me is: can Vista really run well on this box – does Youtube work okay; can the box do a AV scan/update without maxing the CPU (my SP18+ can’t!); and just generally can I browse to flash websites, and do fairly routine tasks without Vista grinding to a halt.

    I emailed Conics a week or so ago, and they said that they would offer XP on the SC3 at some point, but they suspect that not everything will work with Vista.

    Anyway, really looking forward to your review!

    REgarding YouTube. No problem at all.
    YouTube is almost working perfectly on an 800Mhz Silverthorn (i’m currently doing some testing on an M528) so at 1.33Ghz with 533FSB and Hyperthreading it should be twice as powerful as anything with a Geode in it.As for the rest of Vista, it remains to be seen.

    How well does Google Earth run on this?

    Other than this concern, perfection.

    My estimate: as good as Eee PC 701, 900. Which isn’t bad.
    3D graphics is still an unknown at this point though.

    you have a m528?

    Well in your next video (when you receive it) can u view Google Earth in tablet-mode? I’d love to see how responsive it is to touch….

    This has potential to be brilliant.

    Comment ce petit UMPC se débrouille-il dans les jeux ? Classé 3 sous Vista, Bioshock est classé 1 minimum et 2 recommandé ! Ça doit pas vouloir dire grand chose mais bon… Des jeux comme Counterstrike, World Of Warcraft, Half Life 2, Bioshock, sa passe sans problème ? J’attend votre test, c’est ce qui déterminera si je vais me procurer un SX3 ou pas ! Merci :D

  12. Charles says:

    My bad I wrote in french lol.

    How this little UMPC performs in games ? It is classified 3 for gaming under Vista, Bioshock is classified 1 minimum, 2 recommended ! Could it run Bioshock ? Counterstrike, World Of Warcraft, Half Life 2, Bioshock, do they all perform well ? Can it load the lastest games like Call Of Duty 4 ? (not talking about Crysis !) Thanks for this test wow-pow, I’ll wait UMPCPORTAL’S one in order to see if yes or no I’ll get a SX3 ! The only thing that I dislike about this UMPC is the 4200RPM hard drive, which shouldn’t perform very well… Also, which is the best place to get this kind of imported UMPC -> Direct From Japan, or Dynamism ? Thank you !

    The keyboard is bad? I thought the SR/SH predecessors were known for their great keyboard?

  14. Brett says:

    quick note: Hard disk is Samsung SpinPoint N2 HS06THB (1.8″ ZIF) google search this to find more about if you want to replace with SSD etc :)

    the reference is to the SC3 which has a very small keyboard – will take a little time to get used to and type quickly, the SX (with DVD) coming next month has the same size keyboard as the SR8

    Thanks Brett.
