Benchmarks of all Sony Vaio P models (1.33GHz, 1.6GHz, 1.86GHz, 2.0GHz, SSD, HDD)

UPDATE: 2.0GHz Intel Atom Z550 benchmarks now added.

Though there are three different models of the Sony Vaio P in the US, each one runs on the 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor. In other regions, the 1.6GHz Z530 and 1.86GHz Z540 chips are available and paired with the same 60GB hard drive and 64GB/128GB solid state drive storage options offered in the US.

Since these other models boast faster processors and can be purchased through importers like Conics and Dynamism, anyone interested in the mini notebook has much more to choose from than what Sony has made officially available to them. But how much "better" are these alternate configurations?

We have members from all over the world using every existing SSD/HDD and CPU combination in the Vaio P forum, so it wasn't long before all of the CrystalMark benchmark results could be put into the comparison chart below.

You can see from the 1.60GHz scores that the only difference between the 64GB SSD and the 128GB SSD is the storage capacity, which is why the 1.33GHz/128GB SSD model (top of the line in the US) isn't included.

What you can also see from the chart is that the most remarkable difference comes not from the processor speed, but from the disk drive. Yes, the faster CPUs give the ALU/FPU numbers a noticeable bump up, but it's not as significant as the increase seen between a HDD and SSD.
