CybertronPC CLX Osiris 14 Gaming: Bioshock, Mordor And Tomb Raider

Next we'll dig into some legacy game benchmark numbers but then ramp things up to much more current DX11 and DX12 game engines. However, since we don't have a full suite of gaming laptop reference numbers on some of the newer titles, we'll show just the CLX Osiris 14 on its own over various resolutions, in a couple of the following tests.

Bioshock Infinite Game Benchmark
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance
Based on Epic’s Unreal Engine 3, BioShock Infinite takes you (as former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt) to the mysterious, flying city of Columbia. You find yourself helping Elizabeth, who soon turns out to have unusual powers. The game offers a first person shooter (FPS) style view but the storyline is as compelling as the battles and Bioshock infinite has won awards and praise for its story and art design.

Don’t let its place in our comparison chart fool you: the CLX Osiris 15 performed well in Bioshock Infinite. It couldn’t quite catch up to the laptops running GeForce GTX 980M graphics, nor the Alienware 15 (when connected to a GTX 980-powered external graphics amplifier), but 75.57 fps at Ultra Quality settings in Bioshock Infinite is a good indication that this laptop has muscle.

Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor Performance
Glorious Orc-Slaying Vengeance
Monolith’s surprisingly fun Orc-slaying title Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, delivers a ton of visual fidelity even at the lowest quality settings. So, to maximize the eye-candy on this high-end laptop, we ran the game’s High quality benchmark routine at a couple of resolutions, topping out at the native resolution the Osiris' panel. 

All of the game's graphics-related options were enabled, along with FXAA and Camera Blur...

The CybertronPC CLX laptop offered a 75.1 fps at its native 1920x1080 resolution and jumped to 119.22 fps when we dialed it back a bit. Keep in mind that this benchmark was run on the High image quality preset. There is plenty of room here to strike a frame rate/eye candy balance that suits your tastes.

Rise Of The Tomb Raider
DirectX 12 Performance
Rise of the Tomb Raider has hit the PC lining it up in our gun sights for graphics, gameplay and performance analysis. The game launched on the Xbox family of consoles a few months back and has since been ported to PC thanks to NIXXES Software. It’s a competent console to PC port updated with many graphics settings and effects to tweak and dial to your particular tastes and system capabilities. Some of the rendering and effects features include, Ambient Occlusion, Depth of Field, Dynamic Foliage, Bloom shader effects, Tessellation and several more. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's give you some backdrop on the Tomb Raider series.

We also ran the game's benchmark running in its DX12 code path mode.

Here again, the CLX Osiris 14 provided solid results, considering the high quality settings we selected for the benchmark. The laptop just topped 60fps at 1280x720 but remained playable at native 1080p resolution as well.
