System IO Benchmarks


Internal Storage Read Test:




Internal Storage Write Test:





ixChariot Network Throughput:




The PCI-E based M.2 drives does well, and the HDD is quite average. There isn't anything too special to say about the storage on this device, other than I recommend ordering a larger SSD, as I wasn't able to open the notebook, so I don't think you will have an easy time upgrading down the line if you choose that route.


The Intel Wireless card is quite good in this scenario, and wired LAN is where it should be.



Battery Tests




The battery performance is what I have come to expect from most gaming notebooks. You should be able to get an hour or two of hardcore gaming on the go, otherwise just plug in, so you get more performance.


Doing normal tasks, you will get roughly 4-5 hours depending on screen brightness and other power settings.
