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 majority of our systems in the chart are Ultrabooks, which are in a completely different class. You can see, however, that this system hangs and beats the top-tier gaming system of yesteryear (also known as last year). We see an impressive 23,400 and change score for the CPU, 18,162 for the GPU, and an overall score of 19,239, putting the V Nitro in fourth place, but very close to second.
Version and / or Patch Used: 188.8.131.52
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.
We only test gaming notebooks with 3DMark 11, and as you can see in the chart above, we have several closely stacked systems, with one clear standout. The V Nitro technically comes in last, but the difference between last and second is only 100 points, a difference so small that it can be considered a tie.
3DMark - Cloud Gate
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0
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.
With Cloud Gate, we expect the newer Maxwell architecture to show improvements that come with the newer DirectX version. And we see exactly what we expected. The V Nitro comes in second only to the incredibly overpowered EON 17-S, and the EON's lead is only by 3,000.
Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Origin Update
Battlefield 4 is the latest installation in the Battlefield franchise. We benchmark BF4 with a custom 60 second run at the beginning of Siege of Shanghai. Settings are 1920x1080 for the resolution with the "Graphics Quality" set to Ultra.
The EON 17-S continues to be the standout, but the V Nitro doesn't go down without a fight. It manages an average of 23 FPS. While not playable, a detail drop would definitely bump those FPS up into the playable region, without much difficulty or loss of visual fidelity.
Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Origin Update
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. 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 also sees similar results, with the V Nitro falling short of at least 30 FPS. A detail drop to get the FPS up to at least above 30 FPS wouldn't reduce visual fidelity much. So, yes, it can play Crysis... just not at the maximum detail level offered.
