I decided to see how well the Gateway P-7808u FX performed on Crysis. The game has been around for a while now, but it is still more than capable of bringing a high-end machine to its knees. For the Crysis test, I use the Crysis benchmark tool to automate the test loop process and ran the settings at medium.
See the screen shot for the settings used for the benchmark and the frame rates during the test. Needless to say, the Gateway P-7808u FX offered impressive performance for a $1,800 gaming notebook.

We have settled on a different set of MP3's for our iTunes encoding test that will make the scores for the P-7808u FX unable to compare to the Alienware m15x. This will be the set of MP3s and the version of the software that we use in all tests going forward. The album of MP3's I used was the Core album from Stone Temple Pilots. I used iTunes to turn the MP3 tracks into AAC tracks and timed the process with a stopwatch.
It took the P-7808u 1 minute and 51 seconds to encode the entire album.

The movie I used for this test was the Microsoft Flight video, again a different video that the one used in the Alienware m15x review, so comparisons can't be made. As you can see in the image above it took the P-7808u 3 minutes and 3 seconds to encode the movie from HD resolution to DVD quality CBR 2Mbps video with CD quality CBR 2Mbps audio.
No fancy tests here for the battery life of the P-7808u FX. I simply started a DVD and let it play continually until the notebook ran out of power. Typically I use Mobile Mark 2007 to get battery life, but with the load of trial ware installed on the P-7808u FX the Mobile Mark application refused to run. It took the P-7808u FX notebook a whopping 3 hours and 20 minutes to go from 100% to shutdown while watching movies. That is a very impressive number for a gaming notebook.
