Performance

Pre-notes:

This is where we delve deeper into how well the laptop plays games, runs computational tasks such as video encoding and 3D rendering and individual component performance.

We ran all tests on the ‘out of the box’ settings, meaning we didn’t tweak anything to get more performance out of it. We wanted to run everything like you probably would if you were to purchase one for yourself. Note: as a result of us not tweaking any settings, this means you yourself could probably get more out of the laptop if you did go tweaking.

I was quite impressed with the simplicity of the control software. It gave good information, was quick to respond and didn’t feel to be a heavy burden on the system, taking only a few mb of RAM and virtually no CPU time also. It was nice and simple but useful enough to keep installed, and that’s what you want for this kind of laptop. Unlike a lot of other laptop manufacturers, it doesn’t come pre-loaded with a bunch of software you have no use for.

Entertainment mode as default

The main thing you could do to gain more performance out of this laptop is to place the laptop into high performance mode which enables everything to run at full speed all the time. In our example, the power settings were set to ‘Entertainment’ mode which is what it came set with.

Temperatures Under Stress Test

As with all laptops, there comes a point in the testing where the thermal or power limits are hit and the system needs to manage that. I found the laptop to be quite noisy under full stress so I’d recommend not trying to play CoD in a library, but still – it is certainly not the noisiest laptop I’ve used. Those side vents really shift the air, but of course, not enough to avoid the inevitable thermal throttle. However, I was impressed on how long it took to get there. It didn’t happen straight away, it crept up to it over the course of 5-10 mins of full-stress. Bearing in mind this was flat out on both CPU and GPU, you might not get any throttling during normal use.

As you will see, only a couple of cores crept up to the throttle temperature, but the power limits were reached and so the CPU was starved a little, which could be a good reason why it didn’t reach thermal throttling sooner. All in all though, I wasn’t disappointed and it was all performing as I expect any gaming laptop to.
