With the E35M1-I Deluxe ASUS presents its flagship motherboard regarding AMD Fusion architecture. It awaits multimedia users and people who need a noiseless and very energy efficient computer. It even offers decent performance and it's even able to destroy Intels Atom.
We'd like to thank ASUS for providing us with the testsample.

The E35M1-I Deluxe from ASUS is their first high-end motherboard regarding AMDs latest solution named Fusion. What's lying in front of us is USB3.0, Wifi, SATA3.0, Radeon HD 6310 onboard, AMD E-350 Zacate dual core CPU and much more.

It's been almost seven years now that AMD released a mobile CPU. This year AMD showed  a new architecture named Brazos (Bobcat CPU + Zacate GPU) ending up as a so called APU with codename Fusion, to provide an alternative to Intel Atom which used to dominate this market segment. Using PCMark Vantage we are able to show you performance for real-world applications such as video encoding, video playback, web browsing ... We are also going to compare power consumption too, to show the efficiency of Fusion against Atom.
