3D Rendering Performance Results

Cinebench 10
 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.

3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

POV-Ray
 
POV-Ray is short for the Persistence of Vision Raytracer, a tool for producing high-quality computer graphics. The freely available software suite is bundled with a benchmarking scene that uses many of POV-Ray's internal features to heavily test the abilities of the CPU.

Result Observations
 
Both Cinebench and POV-Ray rely heavily on the performance of the CPU, and as the results show, the MSI GX600 with its T8300 CPU performs close to that of a Desktop PC. However, while the turbo button makes a significant difference in both of these benchmarks, the 3DMark results hardly change. This could possibly indicate that the 8600M GT graphics processor is going to prove a bottleneck in 3D gaming results.

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
