3DMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

Developer Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com

Product Homepage: http://www.3dmark.com/3dmarkvantage

 

 

3DMark Vantage tests both processor and graphics performance and is a good indication of how systems compare. The results are generally more repeatable and consistent than other forms of benchmarking. Vantage uses DirectX 10 and can handle multi-core CPUs.

The EON17-S absolutely smashes the competition when it comes to every aspect of the system. Its CPU score is higher than any other system, though only by 2,000 points. Its GPU score, however, is nearly double the closest competitor.

 

Its final score of 25,543 is over 10,000 higher than the next closest machine. Wow.

 

 

3DMark 11

3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC's gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.

Interestingly enough, the EON17-S' CPU actually scores less than the Maingear Vybe 15, though not by a statistically significant amount. The GPU, however, doubles the performance of the iBUYPOWER Valkyrie, the next closest system in the chart.

 

 

3DMark - Cloud Gate Test

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0

Developer Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com

Product Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/3dmark

 

 

Cloud Gate is a new test that is designed for Windows notebooks and typical home PCs. Cloud Gate includes two graphics tests and a physics test. Cloud Gate uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10 making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware. Cloud Gate will only be available in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.

You can see in the chart above just how well the 680M performs. It absolutely trounces the 650M used in its little brother.

 

 

Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 is one of the most requested benchmarks, so we have finally added it. Frame rates are recorded for 60 seconds starting in the first part of campaign when the character picks up the gun and is played through until just after the train explodes. The game is played three times in that manner with the results being averaged together and reported.

 

Settings are 1920x1080 for the resolution with the "Graphics Quality" set to Ultra. If a computer doesn't support 1080p, an external monitor is plugged in and the computer set to only output to that monitor.

The EON17-S can play Battlefield 3 on Ultra graphics preset without a doubt. The 680M, coupled with the powerful 3940XM, is more than enough to push BF3 at 1920x1080 with impressive graphics quality.
