Now we get to jump into some benchmarks for the G51VX notebook. Since this is a gaming machine, I will get to do my Crysis test and 3DMark Vantage along with my Movie Encoding test, Battery Eater Pro and iTunes encoding test.
Battery Eater Pro
Battery Eater is particularly harsh on notebook batteries. As always, your mileage may vary. The maximum performance test was run with no power saving features turned on and the screen set to 100% brightness. The max life test was run at the same settings, but the screen was set to 50% brightness.
Check out the chart below for the results. The battery life was atrocious, not that I expected much battery life from a quad-core gaming notebook.
For my iTunes encoding test I take the Stone Temple Pilots Core CD in MP3 format and use iTunes to turn the tracks into AAC format and time the process. The G51VX laid down the best time we have ever recorded on this test. Check out the chart below.

Next up is my movie encoding test where I take Windows Media Encoder and the Microsoft Magic of Flight HD video and encode it from HD to DVD quality with CD quality audio. The G51VX again turned in a very good time, only two seconds slower than the top performer in this test, the Gateway P7808u.
The next test up is one we haven't seen in a while with all the netbooks I have been testing. I was able to put the G51VX through the 3DMark Vantage benchmark. The notebook did very well. Check out the chart below for the results.
The final benchmark for the G51VX is with Crysis. The notebook did very well, but was bested in the gaming test by the much cheaper Gateway P7808u gaming notebook. Check out the chart below for the results.
