Synthetic Benchmarks


PC Mark 8

Rather surprisingly, the system’s PC Mark 8 score fell behind the MSI GE62 6QD by a decent margin despite having the same processor and a better graphics chip. To clarify these results, I ran the benchmark another two times, and didn’t encounter any significant changes. Perhaps, a background process was intervening or the CPU’s frequency didn’t turbo to 3.5GHz throughout the test run. Whatever the case, this isn’t enough of a deficit to cause alarm and will still provide a superb experience when it comes to basic photo editing, web browsing and other rudimentary tasks.

On a more positive note, the 3D performance was much better, and a large step up from the Gigabyte P34W v3 during 1440P testing. As you can see, this is the best set of scores we’ve seen from a gaming laptop, and it’s very impressive given the compact design.

In a similar fashion, the laptop performed really well in Heaven 4.0 especially with the DirectX9 render. Even though it’s slightly behind the P34W v3’s Extreme score, the difference is within a margin of error and could easily be a contrasting running order via a second benchmark run.

    Great review! I sure look forward to the 4K model released at a later date. When do you except the 4K model to be released?

      Hi, thank you so much for the positive comment, really glad you enjoyed it. Not official word on the 4K release date yet, but I presume it will be in the next 2 months.
