The main problem with benchmarking or performance is making sure the cpu frequency is locked to high performance which due to a peculiarity can only be done by toggling the laptop's sleep function.
After doing this and running 3DMark 2013 initial ice storm benchmark you should get a better result of around 23,141.
The only thing that prevents this quad core laptop from being clocked further is the memory speed of 534mhz set by the acer bios and can not be altered to my knowledge.
It is normal that this is so in many laptops to prevent overheating and subsequent damage that could occur.
Under laboratory conditions with different cooling these baby amd gpu's can be overclocked to around 2000 mhz.
Acer bios should be able to clock the memory a little faster but they don't allow it.
All AMD apus require a fast quality memory to get the best performance.
Overall a nioe windows 8.1 laptop after upgrading online witch takes a little patience.
