Those results, at least compilation, are so wrong. Don't know what went wrong during your benchmark, but I just did a test run(s) and the results are a bit different from those mentioned in the article: http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...KH-ATHLON53567

I can't blame anyone for "wrong" results. All I can say is that my results with the cheapo MSI motherboard and 8G of good ram paint an entirely different picture. From these results you are pretty much seeing a doubling of performance over E-350, and I might add that the system (only the motherboard and cpu are different from my previous e-350) idles at 3 Watts lower, and peeks pretty much the same 30 Watts.
No one in their right mind would run only 4G of ram on a multi-purpose machine. If it was a dedicated single-app server sure, but not a desktop.
the AMD Kabini 5350 is a very good low power cpu!
But really the main point is if you've got $300-$600 invested in a machine, $30-$40 for 4G only make sense. The old adage "penny wise and pound foolish" applies here.
Maybe you don't being aware of, but there are few tweaks to raise graphic performance in games of course . Keep in mind that kernel 3.16 is generaly faster for SI hardware due to VM implemented/enabled.
So as i see you have 56 fps in Xonotic low for example, i am seeing 70 fps with kernel 3.16.
Additionaly with hyperz enabled i have 80 fps there.
With governor set as 'performance' 84 fps.
New parameters to play with in kernel 3.16 are vm_size and vm_block_size can also raise perf by few fps - so currently with the current stack what i can get is 86 fps .
All in all that is 30 fps difference or +35% in graphic performance in Xonotic 1080p low case, raised with the few tweaks .

Of course maybe someone on Gentoo can get even 90 fps, but that is it currently .
