Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

GPU Testing: Cinebench OpenGL, Cloud Gate

Cinebench R11.5’s GPU benchmark uses a 3D scene depicting a car chase, which measures the performance of a graphics card using OpenGL. The CPU and GPU have to process a large amount of geometry (nearly 1 million polygons) and textures, as well as a variety of effects, such as bump maps, transparency, lighting and more. Results are reported in frames per second.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon put up a slightly better score than the Surface Pro 3 here, but one again, Microsoft's latest flagship convertible device finishes near the top of the charts.

The Surface Pro 3 just barely squeaked past the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbone here in terms of its overall Cloud Gate score, though the ThinkPad's Physics and Game Test 1 scores were slightly higher.
