3DMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

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 ASUS ROG G750 put up the second best 3DMark Vantage score of any of the laptop systems we have tested. Scoring a whopping 19,839 Marks, the G750 should be capable of taking on most games at reasonably high detail levels.

 

Digging into the individual scores, we can see that the new Haswell processor performs about on par with the previous generation of CPUs. The benefits of the new architecture should become abundantly clear in the battery life test.

 

 

3DMark 11

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1.0

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.

Due to our updating of the 3DMark 11 benchmark, previous scores have been archived.

 

As you can see in the chart above, the ASUS G750 scored a respectable 5,199. For comparison's sake, that's the second best score we've seen between the old version and current version of the benchmark. Only the Eon 17-S beat it.

 

 

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.

The ASUS G750 is consistently scoring second place behind the older Eon 17-S. In the Cloud Gate benchmark, the G750 put up a score of 14,839, a respectable score in comparison to the other systems.

 

 

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.

You can see that the G750 is capable of playing Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings. It produced an average frame rate of 43.8, which is above the 30 FPS threshold often thought needed for smooth gameplay.

 

 

Crysis 3

Crysis 3 is run at 1920 x 1080 resolution with the graphics specifications set to "Very High." No anti-aliasing is used. See picture above for full details. The test is ran three times due to higher variability than the other benchmarks. FRAPS is used to record 60 seconds worth of FPS data and recording starts at the start of the campaign and finishes most of the way up the tower. The game is played in a similar manner each time.

Crysis 3, however, is a different story. It produced an average frame rate of 21.4 FPS, putting it below the 30 FPS threshold. Turning down the detail level would boost the FPS and allow the game to be playable.
