Vaio_p_bench_upd The Sony Vaio P recently became available in Japan with Intel's latest and fastest Atom processor, the 2GHz Z550, so it was only a matter of time before someone in our Vaio P forum got one and began putting it through its paces.

Since forum members already helped me to compile the CrystalMark benchmark results of all the other default P configurations (Vista, 1.33GHz, 1.6GHz, 1.86GHz, SSD, HDD) a few months ago, I've updated the original chart with the new set of numbers yielded from a 2GHz unit running Vista on a 64GB SSD.

The result? Nearly twice the overall mark of the entry-level Vaio P! As before, the SSD makes the most significant difference, but the higher ALU/FPU scores certainly aren't too shabby either.
