 Performance Comparisons with 3DMark06
 Details: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

The Futuremark 3DMark06 CPU benchmark consists of tests that use the CPU to render 3D scenes, rather than the GPU. It runs several threads simultaneously and is designed to utilize multiple processor cores.



No huge surprises here; the SU7300 1.3GHz CULV processor is present in all four of these machines, with the main variables being the OS (Windows 7 vs. Vista) and the GPU arrangement. Our VAIO Y didn't stack up so well against the UL80Vt (which was tested with its discrete GPU switched on), but it matched up pretty evenly with the UL30A and ThinkPad Edge 13". The unit's full 3DMark06 benchmark result is below:
