ASUS Zenbook Prime Linux Benchmarks
Overall, the ASUS Zenbook Prime performance meets expectations given that it's only an Ivy Bridge dual-core processor (plus Hyper Threading). Its performance is good alone, but with a 17 Watt TDP, the performance-per-Watt ends up being very nice for the Core i7 3517U. The next installment of the ASUS Zenbook Prime Ubuntu Linux benchmarking will be looking at the power consumption and performance-per-Watt metrics. My full Linux review of the ASUS Zenbook Prime will come in January when I'm back in my office.
All benchmarking was handled via the Phoronix Test Suite and you can easily compare your own system's performance to these results by simply running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1312093-PTS-ASUSZENB34.
