Looking to get some IN-GAME benchmarks with FRAPS, and see what different people's rigs are doing. Why are the M1730 guys allowed? Simple...so we can see what the new M1730 can do, and see if it is worth slapping another $3,000 to $5,000 down on the table.
RULES: 1- To rule out as many variables as we can, we should all use FRAPS for benchmarking. F-11 is the default key to start a benchmark. 2- Tell us about your rig. Be specific about hardware, OS, clockspeeds, and drivers. Having that info in your signature is even better. 3- Cut and paste straight from the FRAPS log that is created in C:Fraps. Be sure to specify what resolution you're using because FRAPS does not document this. 4- Specify what graphical settings you are using for that game. Saying 'Full Graphical Settings' means that you have every graphic option for that game maxed out, turned on, etc. In Bioshock you could say 'Full Graphical Settings, but Dynamic Lighting is Off'. In Oblivion it would be nice if you specify outdoors or indoors. You get the point. 5- TURN V-SYNC OFF. If your scores are pegged at 30FPS or 60FPS, that's nice, but tells us nothing. If you say 'Full Graphical Settings', we are to assume that V-Sync is off. You don't need to mention it.
It is obvious to me that this is not as foolproof as an ORB link. People can edit the text file to say whatever they want it to.
I just benchmarked my system and i originally got 2,000 with 3DMark 06. But after installing new drivers i got 4,857! And in PCMark 05 i got 4,893, although i need to re-test that one because it was lower than i should have gotten i think and
i installed new drivers for my pc like i said. But for 3DMark 06 getting 4,857 is much better than the reviews which it got around 4,200 i believe.
Crysis UpDated: (F'n vista caused the setting not to save right) The following benchmarks where done using Crysis benchmark util I found over at guru3d.

I recently unlocked my 7900GS (in my inspiron 9400), and have it running comfortably at 450/1100 @ 1.24v ...
By comfortably I mean the MAX temp under full load (using ATITool Find Max Core) is 78C (which I know is high, but this is a stress test afterall ... it would never be running this streseed under normal circumstances) with 0 artifacts over 4 hours of running ATITools ...
I went to benchmark with 3dMark 06, and my score is 2551 ... WTF?
Now, I am a vista (x32) user, and recognize there has been evidence that graphics performance under vista is slightly lower then in XP ... but 2551? Thats a ridiculously low score
I ran 3dmark with no tasks running at all, and when I as afk
Does anyone have any clue why my 3d mark score is so ridiculously low?
If its of interest to anyone, i'm using Forceware 173.65 drivers from the good folks at laptopvideo2go (with the modified INF)
And my laptops specs of relevance are: T2550, 2gB @ 667
I was bored tonight so I ran some benchmarks on my 1720, Specs in Sig Only change was the GPU was overclocked.
1st Pic is 3DMark @ stock clocks.--------3449 2nd Pic is 3DMark Overclocked-----------4366 Old 4259, 4271, 4280 3rd Pic is Vantage @ stock clocks--------P1115 4th Pic is Vantage Overclocked-----------P1457 Old P1410
I didnt get time to finish a Vantage run on my last set oc clocks since it needed tweaking due to display driver crashes. GPU temps never reached higher the 67*C when overclocked
So there have been quite a few posts recently about the 8600GTvs7900GS debacle, so i thought Id post some benchmarks for everyone's viewing I used tomshardware.com to compare the GPU's. Ive come to find BF2142 is quite popular in these forums so this is a game i decided to use w/ the benchmarks. I wont say anything else, Ill let you decide on the performance difference between the two
Note- I realize real world performance/driver tweaking can have a great impact on things, these BM's are for your curiosity only
After getting my new 1410, I was interested in finding out just how much a hard drive and RAM upgrade would help. I have a 1410 SU2300 which came with 2 1GB DDR2 Dual Channel 667 Mhz 5-5-5-15 RAM modules and a 160GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue. I made a list of fairly well known benchmarks, and ran them with various configurations using upgraded RAM (2 2GB DDR2 Dual Channel 800 Mhz 6-6-6-18 Corsair) and HDD (320GB Seagate Momentus 7200.4).
For testing, I wiped the drive, installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, and applied all the tweaks in the 1410 thread, including installing BatteryBar, RMClock, and a few programs of my own like Office 2007 and Dropbox along with the latest drivers for every component and all of the latest MS updates. Then, I installed the following programs for benchmarking:
PCMark Vantage x64 Professional - Overall performance indicator, provides scores for various areas of computer usage. Instead of running synthetic benchmarks, it runs scripts using standard Windows programs like Media Player and Internet explorer. Accurate and popular with repeatable results; probably my favorite benchmark. PCMark Vantage x86 Professional - Same as x64 version, shown for 32 bit comparison – can only address 3.5gb of the 4.0 installed Passmark Performance Test 7 – Synthetic overall benchmark, could not be completely run due to directX issues. Not very repeatable or accurate, I personally dislike it. IOMeter – Hard drive benchmark, sends repeated IO requests and measures operations completed per second in various configurations. Reasonably repeatable, very accurate, much better at providing an overall performance indicator then synthetic sequential readwrite HDD benchmarks. Everest Ultimate – Memory, CPU, and HDD benchmarking options. Not very repeatable or reliable.
Geekbench x86 – Memory & CPU benchmark. Somewhat repeatable, fairly inaccurate.
Geekbench x64 - Same as x86 version, allows for comparison between x86x64.
Crystal Disk Mark – HDD benchmarking program using various file sizes. Results given in MBs. Very accurate and repeatable, my favorite sequential readwrite testing program. Used 9 pass 1GB file settings.
I have yet to purchase a new 15" Macbook Pro of my own, although I am interested in the FPS that these new laptops can produce. I am an occasional gamer and realize that these new GPU's are about middle class and may be able to play a few of the newer games at mid-high settings although they have 512MB. Any FPS benchmarks out there with specs of their laptops? I had a i7 2.66ghz, high res screen 1680 by 1050 , 4gb RAM in mind.
To day i found new Vaio Z show off in my country (Thailand) it come in stores 4 days ago here is specification of top model
VPC-Z117GG Intel Core i7-620M 2.66GHz - 3.33GHz DDR3 8GB Quad SSD 256GB Nvidia Geforce GT330m 13.1 Screen at 1920x1080 Windows 7 x64 Professional Weight 1.4 Kg Battery 5hrs Local warranty 2years Inter 1 years Price 94,900 Baht (Approx US$2899)
New palmrest design is looking more better than the picture, the 1920x1080 screen does not look too small at all because it set font size to 125%. Text look a little bigger than the 1600x900 at font size 100%
When i set the font size back to 100% the text is small but not too much i think many people can live with that size.
After that i download some benchmark programs to test the device but in final the sale really don't want me to do that. So i took a picture in hurry and this is the result.
I've been watching the order on Dell's site all week, as it was scheduled to ship (on or before today) (2/21/08), and I opted for Next Day shipping.
When I placed the order, the woman I spoke with asked for my Service Tag number. I, um... don't HAVE one... I didn't say this, I simply said I don't have that information at the moment. She asked how I got the part numbers, and I told her from their own Spare Parts page.
Well....the order got cancelled today. Saw it online while at work, just before I left for the day. Another order number with the identical items was created, with a scheduled ship date of 3/3/08. WHAT?
The woman just called....she states they cannot process my order without a service tag number. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
I told her I don't have a tag number....she asked if I was building one. "Yes." To which I hear...
"Oh....well, I don't think our supplier will allow that without a service tag number, because we reserve those parts for people who bought m1710's."
I said "That's amazing...because I know a number of people who have done the same thing I'm trying to do, and had no problems getting these parts."
"Well, that's because they have m1710's"
*mad enought to scream at this point* "Um, no...where do you think I got the idea from?? I'm certainly not the first person to have this idea."
how I can get them to sell me some refurbished plastics? What's the secret password?
I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).
Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.
What would cause the computer to come up with the blue screen of death and say system haulted and the number lock led to be lite up? all iw as doing was listening to music. temps were cpu 61c and gpu 54c.
I just acquired my 1st XPS notebook this week (bought it used) and so far, I'm loving it. Not a huge fan of Dell desktops but I must admit, they have done something amazing with their XPS/gaming systems. And their warranty services aren't too shabby.
My current system is as follows: Intel C2D T7200 @ 2.0GHz 4MB L2/667MHz Go 7900GS 4GB DDR2 RAM 200GB 7200RPM HDD Gigabyte wireless adapter (not sure which model but it supports 108Mbps)
Got it for a good price so I wanted to know the following...
Is it worth it for me to upgrade the CPU to possibly the T7600/T7600G? Is it worth it for me to upgrade the GPU to the Go 7950GTX?
I was looking into OC-ing my CPU and GPU but I haven't found any information on OC-ing the CPU. As for the GPU, the sticky here seems to be pretty easy to follow. I will try that tonight and see what I can push out of my system. I've never been huge into the OC-ing scene
