MSI GT60 Dominator Pro Gaming Laptop Review

PCMark 7, Cinebench 11.5

Futuremark PCMark 7
Simulated Application Performance
Futuremark’s PCMark 7 benchmark includes a suite of tests designed to measure the way your computer would perform during typical tasks. It includes an Entertainment Suite, which offers gaming scenarios and tests its media playback capabilities. The benchmark also has a Creativity Suite, in which the system processes images and video. Other tools include the Computation Suite and the Storage Suite. The latter is capable of measure SSDs and hard drives, either individually, or as a whole.

The MSI GT60 Dominator Pro is slightly faster than either of the competitor systems, but the difference is marginal.

Cinebench R11.5 64-bit
Content Creation Performance
Maxon's Cinebench R11.5 benchmark is based on Maxon's Cinema 4D software used for 3D content creation chores and tests both the CPU and GPU in separate benchmark runs. On the CPU side, Cinebench renders a photorealistic 3D scene by tapping into up to 64 processing threads (CPU) to process more than 300,000 total polygons, while the GPU benchmark measures graphics performance by manipulating nearly 1 million polygons and huge amounts of textures.

There's very little difference between the Alienware systems and the MSI GT60 in terms of CPU performance. The mobile AMD GPU actually wins the OpenGL test in this benchmark, but performance in games is a bit different.
