MSI GT680 Sandy Bridge Gaming Laptop Review
SiSoft Sandra & Cinebench
SANDRA Lite 2011b,
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.
By design, Cinebench is brutal on mobile machines and many desktops since it focuses heavily on 3D content creation. Although 4.93 points for the CPU score may not sound like much initially, it's actually a very respectable score, particularly for a notebook.
To help you compare, AVADirect's Clevo X1800 Core i7 desktop replacement system achieved a score of just 3.39 points.
