3DMark Vantage

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

Developer Homepage:

Product Homepage:

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 Eon 11-S puts up a respectable fight in 3DMark Vantage. While the 11.6-inch system didn't have a fighting chance at some of the larger systems, it manages to hang with the larger 15.6-inch systems.

Considering the size of the system, it did quite a bit better than I would have thought possible. Origin has done a great job of stuffing computing power into this tiny chassis.

3DMark 11

Version and / or Patch Used:

Developer Homepage:

Product Homepage:

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.


The EON11-S continues to fall in line where it should. It continues to hang with the larger 15.6-inch systems, but is unable to close the gap on the larger 17-inch systems. There's only so much computing power you can pack into 11.6-inches.

Looking at the individual scores, the GPU performs right on par with other systems that feature the same GPU.

3DMark - Cloud Gate Test

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0

Developer Homepage:

Product Homepage:

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.


This is the newest version of Futuremark's benchmark. As such, we only have two systems in the results. As you can see, the EON11-S is easily outclassed by its bigger brother, the Eon 17. There isn't anything really surprising about these results.

Battlefield 3

Developer Homepage:

Product Homepage:

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.


Another new test to the laptop testing suite, Battlefield 3 is a real system crusher, at least for notebooks. Again, we only have the two systems that have been through the lab and put up numbers, though this will soon change.

The EON11-S is again outclassed by its bigger brother, though the numbers put up by the EON11-S would be better if you were gaming at the system's native resolution of 1366x768.
