HP EliteBook 8440w Core i7 Notebook Review
To touch on gaming
Neither of these titles are particularly new, but both showcase how well a machine can handle what we'd describe as "light-duty" to "medium-duty" gaming. Obviously, a workstation GPU won't handle the latest and greatest first-person shooters on the market, but it managed to play both of these classics at a very smooth clip, even at native resolution (1600x900). While not shown on this chart due to our previous machines not supporting 1600x900 resolution, both titles completed the scenes with average FPS rates between 32 and 36, so both were perfectly playable even at the native resolution. Some of the newer titles, however, would probably put the 380M in a real bind, but you really shouldn't be considering a mobile workstation is gaming is your top priority, anyway.
