Mythlogic Deimos Gaming Laptop Review: GeForce GTX 980M And Desktop Skylake

Performance: PCMark, 3DMark and Cinebench

We kicked off testing with some well-known benchmarks. Futuremark’s PCMark 7 covers typical workloads, while 3Dmark and Cinebench offer different perspectives of the laptop’s 3D capabilities.

Although the Mythlogic Deimos 1615S is built specifically for gaming, its heavy-duty components mean it should be able to handle other computing tasks with ease. To see how it compares in day-to-day computing activities, we fired up the well-known PCMark 7 benchmark.

A score of 7787 put the Deimos 1615S at the top of the PCMark 7 chart. The Intel Core i7-6700K processor and fast Samsung SSD both played roles in the system blowing past the other rigs. 

Maxon Cinebench R11.5
Simulated Application Performance

Based on Maxon Cinema 4D software, this test uses a 3D scene and polygon and texture manipulation to assess GPU and CPU performance. We ran the full CPU test, which uses all available cores, as well as the graphics-oriented OpenGL benchmark.

As we expected, the Deimos 1615S sailed through this benchmark with high scores and took top honors in the OpenGL test.

3D Gaming Performance

Futuremark designed 3DMark Fire Strike for desktop PCs, but today’s heavy-duty gaming laptops have the chops to take on the high-resolution texture, tessellation and other components of the test.

Although it may not look like it at first glance, the Deimos 1615S took first place in this test. The other two high scores are actually from Alienware laptops that have desktop GPUs connected in an external enclosure (Alienware’s AMP feature). When we take only laptops into consideration, the Mythlogic system has the highest score.
