CyberPowerPC Fangbook X7-200 Gaming Notebook

4 thumbs up
Usually, we’d fire up Futuremark's system performance benchmark, PCMark Vantage so we'd have a wide range of comparable numbers, but as of press time, Futuremark had not yet released an update of the test for Windows 8. We still have PCMark 7 and 3Dmark 11 to test our system, though.

PCMark and 3DMark Tests
General Application and Multimedia Performance
Futuremark's PCMark 7 is the latest version of the PCMark whole-system benchmarking suite. It has updated application performance measurements targeted for a Windows 7 environment and uses newer metrics to gauge relative performance, versus the older PCMark Vantage.

Below is what Futuremark says is incorporated in the base PCMark suite and the Entertainment, Creativity, and Productivity suites, the four modules we have benchmark scores for you here.

The PCMark test is a collection of workloads that measure system performance during typical desktop usage. This is the most important test since it returns the official PCMark score for the system

Storage
-Windows Defender
-Importing pictures
-Gaming

Video Playback and transcoding
Graphics
-DirectX 9

Image manipulation
Web browsing and decrypting

The Entertainment test is a collection of workloads that measure system performance in entertainment scenarios using mostly application workloads. Individual tests include recording, viewing, streaming and transcoding TV shows and movies, importing, organizing and browsing new music and several gaming related workloads. If the target system is not capable of running DirectX 10 workloads then those tests are skipped. At the end of the benchmark run the system is given an Entertainment test score.

The Creativity test contains a collection of workloads to measure the system performance in typical creativity scenarios. Individual tests include viewing, editing, transcoding and storing photos and videos. At the end of the benchmark run the system is given a Creativity test score.

The Productivity test is a collection of workloads that measure system performance in typical productivity scenarios. Individual workloads include loading web pages and using home office applications. At the end of the benchmark run the system is given a Productivity test score.



The CyberPowerPC Fangbook starts strong out of the gate, posting a surprisingly strong score in PCMark 7. This score speaks to the prowess of the system as a whole, which includes a solid CPU/GPU combination bolstered by 16GB of memory and an SSD.

Futuremark 3DMark 11
Simulated Gaming Performance

3DMark11, is specifically targeted at Windows 7 and 8-based systems due to its DirectX 11 requirement. 3DMark11 isn't simply a port of 3DMark Vantage to DirectX 11, though. With this latest version of the benchmark, Futuremark has incorporated four new graphics tests, a physics tests, and a new combined test. We tested the graphics cards here with 3DMark11's Performance preset option, which uses a resolution of 1280x720 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.



Our system didn’t do nearly as well in 3DMark 11. In a trend that we’ll see repeated in our benchmarks, the Fangbook beat out systems with older CPUs and lesser GPUs but, as expected, couldn’t quite match the performance of the GTX 680 nor multi-GPU systems. It did, however, edge out the iBuypower system, which has very similar specs.

wow, for what I paid for my daughters macbook pro I could have got a good laptop. But it was not a choose I agreed with I showed her what could be had and how fast could could be.

Anyway you are right realneil it looks great

Nice specs on this laptop but im not sold on Cyberpower's build quality. Buddy bought a laptop from them bout 3 years ago and within 6 months it fell apart and he should have RMAed it but was so disgusted he said screw it. After that and trying to help him fix his laptop which the problem was the fan on the GPU and the heatpipes to the CPU and GPU were falling off. Fan was super loud so we took off the back cover to find the heatpipes started dangling down. 

This was 3 years ago so I hope they would have corrected this issue which I haven't known anyone with anything else from them but that was enough to look elsewhere.

Looks nice and seems to get decent benchmarks. I like the looks except for the bright blue lights that appear to be shining back towards the user (around the speakers). Generally speaking I don't want any additional lights that close to my screen. I do like the backlit keyboard though.

Nice specs and nice bang for the buck, to be sure. I'm wondering how long it will last though. High end components throw off a lot of heat when stressed and packing them into a laptop seems like a good way to add new new meaning to the phrase "burned in."

Ive seen videos of manufacturers doing all in one liquid cooling in laptops and curious to when this could become the standard in gaming laptops. While I understand the risk in this of it being in such a compact spot along with a laptop gets bounced around alot more than a desktop PC it still would be great to have.
