PCMark Vantage and SiSoft 2009

We ran the Asus G73JH through Futuremark’s latest system performance metric built especially for current Windows operating systems, PCMark Vantage. This benchmark suite creates a host of different usage scenarios to simulate different types of workloads including High Definition TV and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communications, and productivity. We like the fact that most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, in order to exploit the additional resources offered by multi-core processors.

Simulated Application Performance

With an overall score of 6468, the G73 performed as expected. It finished ahead of the G51 and XPS 16, but trailed the high end Xcaliber and X8100 notebooks by a wide margin, due to the inclusion of SSDs in those machines.

SANDRA testing shows excellent performance in all areas. In general, the Core i7 720QM was slower than its closest desktop counterpart, the Core i7 750, but faster than dual core options.
