Preliminary Benchmarks Continued

Again, it should be noted that all of the performance data provided here has been provided by NVIDIA through their own internal testing as no test systems were available in time for the NDA embargo. HotHardware's own performance data from our normal suite of benchmarks will be provided shortly.

Quake 4 - Demo3 - 1600x1200
Core 2 Duo T7600 - 2GB - i945PM (Forceware v84.69)
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/700)
140.2
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/600) 133.1

Despite running at 1600x1200, NVIDIA's latest mobile flagship GPU is able to handle Quake 4 with ease. Granted, this is running the game without any enhanced image quality settings such as FSAA or Anisotropic Filtering. The performance delta between the two different memory frequencies is roughly 7FPS which is largely a mute point here as average framerates are well above 100FPS for both configurations.

 

Quake 4 - Demo3 - 1600x1200 - 4XAA / 8XAF
Core 2 Duo T7600 - 2GB - i945PM (Forceware v84.69)
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/700)
79.7
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/600) 70.6

Keeping the resolution at 1600x1200 and adding 4x FSAA and 8x Anisotropic Filtering, we are still able to see an average framerate of nearly 80FPS. The configuration using the 100MHz lower memory frequency witnesses a performance penalty of roughly 10FPS which could certainly begin to be noticeable during gameplay. 

 

Prey - Demo1 - 1600x1200
Core 2 Duo T7600 - 2GB - i945PM (Forceware v84.69)
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/700)
63.2
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/600) 59.6

Based off of the Doom3 engine, Prey has developed a reputation for having stunning visuals and a strict demand for fast hardware. Here, the GeForce Go 7950 GTX is able to run the game at 1600x1200 while retaining an average framerate of 63FPS.

 

F.E.A.R. Benchmark - 1920x1200
Core 2 Duo T7600 - 2GB - i945PM (Forceware v84.69)
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/700)
36
GeForce Go 7950 GTX (575/600) 34

F.E.A.R is an extremely demanding title in terms of hardware requirements thanks to the gorgeous visuals and effects within the game. With this in mind, it is surprising to see that a notebook using the GeForce Go 7950 GTX is able to run the title at 1920x1200 resolution, let alone at nearly 40FPS.
