Benchmarks

 

Now we get to the part of the review where we look at synthetic and real world benchmarks to get an idea of the performance the P-7808u FX delivers. I will be using PCMark Vantage and 3DMark06 for the synthetic benchmarks and Crysis, Video Encoding and iTunes Encoding for the real world tests along with a real world test for battery life.

PCMark Vantage is a great synthetic benchmark that simulates a variety of different workloads to get an idea of how well the P-7808u FX performs as a whole. The P-7808u FX performed very well, beating the much more expensive Alienware m15x, which could only muster a total score of 3615 on the benchmark.

Typically, I would run 3DMark Vantage on a Vista notebook, but the screen resolution of the P-7808u wasn't compatible so I opted to run 3DMark06. 3DMark06 v1.10 is a gaming benchmark that puts the NVIDIA 9800M GTS and the CPU of the machine through their paces. Check out the image below to see how well the P-7808u FX did.
