MSI TurboBook GX600 Gaming Notebook

CPU & Memory Performance Results

Sisoft Sandra
 
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a notebook. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.

SuperPI
 
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers as it's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. A test of 8 million itterations was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest times removed from the results and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Result Observations
 
In both the Sandra CPU Multimedia and Arithmetic benchmarks the GX600 literally leaves the Acer Aspire for dust. This lead is further increased when turbo mode is enabled on the GX600, bumping up both the memory and CPU speed and pushing the results so far ahead of the Acer that it's almost embarrassing.
 
The same can also be seen in SuperPI with the MSI GX600 managing to complete the 8m PI calculation in just under 3 minutes 40 seconds. That's within 20 seconds of a recently reviewed Quad-Core desktop PC!

Great review, Jim, but as stated, the design looks rather poor. Although it performs, I'd probably check around for other alternatives before settling with this one. But then again, I tend to go for bigger HDD's, screens and such, as it is a notebook. Quote

I have a feeling the 7200rpm drives generally use more power - I judge that merely by having replaced some 5400rpms with them and noticing a great deal more heat. They work well enough tho.

Have to be honest, the design looks pretty cheap to me and the specs, although looking pretty good with the benchies don`t push me towards wanting to part with £850 for one.

Flimsy feeling case - for a gamer - it should be shrouded in rubber and polystrene black-taped to it (probably wouldn`t help with the heat tho lol)

Don`t like these turbo-boost ideas either. I can remember turbo buttons on old pcs.

Bet it works a treat tho, as per the great review. (I`d buy the Acer with the lesser spec tbh, or look for a newer spec`d Acer)Quote

Mr. Smith
Gaming + notebook = FAIL. If you want to play games at decent res/settings you need a desktop.

Quite impressed with the CPU OC though Quote

if i was going to buy a laptop, i would buy a dell, as their build quality is better

this doesnt offer a very good spec, or a very good build quality for the price it seems

good review though Quote
