SiSoft SANDRA & Cinebench

We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, Memory Bandwidth, Physical Disks).

Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA
Synthetic Benchmarks

Although the Fangbook doesn't take the top spot here, it can definitely hang with the lead pack, scoring within a reasonable range of the four best systems in our bank.

In terms of memory bandwidth, the Fangbook posted one of the better scores, and you can see how much of a performance boost this gaming notebook gets from the Intel SSD. Of the three SSD-packing systems here, it scored the lowest, but the gulf between it and the systems with a traditional HDD is vast.

Cinebench R11.5 64bit
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.

These CPU scores are mosty predictable, with the Fangbook’s Core i7-3630QM falling just short of the Alienware M18x R2 and M17x and their slightly better processors. It’s a little surprising that it outpaces the Eurocom system by such a large margin, though.

You can see how well the Fangbook’s GTX 675MX GPU performs here; its 41.64 OpenGL score beats out a GTX 580M SLI configuration and isn’t too far off of the score put up by the M17x’s GTX 680M.
