    On the AMD C-50 the gpu is great, it`s the cpu that lets it down with an passmark score of only 444 points

    Also running a video higher than your native resolution, eg running an fullhd video on an screen that`s not even hd, means it`s being down-scaled so it`s not a true test i would think.

    Also works with the latest drivers now. Had a problem with a driver before.

    Also any progress on the CPU overclock part?

    It's a shame the unlocked BIOS doesn't unlock the dynamic clocks, overclocking would help so much. :(

    I guess no one used the c50 anymore. xD

    still use mine but this doesnt have unlocked multipliers and no mobo I have seen support bus overclocking. OCing just isnt something this chip can do. Run a lighter os like android, windows xp[?] or some linux distro...

    Well considering you can buy machines with at least twice the performance for < $300 there's no need. And the Acer V5-122p 11.6" with A6-1450 quad core costs $350 and can run pretty much anything out there. Not to mention the Asus Transformer T100 that can also play games reasonably well for < $300.
