Gaming Benchmarks

 Performance with Half-Life 2 Episode 2 and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
Gaming Performance

To touch on gaming performance, we chose two games that draw moderately on system resources, Half-Life 2 Episode 2 and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. We then ran a pre-recorded demo of each at a resolution of 1280x720. The resulting performance achieved is indicated in frames per second in the graph below.

We told you we were impressed with what the R705-P40 managed to squeeze out of a plain 'ole Intel GMA HD setup, at least in these two legacy titles. The graphics here were just as impressive as those found on the 14" Asus U43F and significantly faster than the  Lenovo ThinkPad X100e and MainGear Clutch 13. These scores may not impress hardcore gamers, but again, you probably shouldn't be in the market for a 13.3" machine if gaming is your top priority. Just being able to run a 3D title smoothly on occasion is a nice back-pocket feature for an ultraportable like this Protégé.
