Next, we tested the notebooks in two modes in Quake 3:
- 640x480; 16 bit; Vertex Lighting; Low Detail; 16-bit Texture Quality; Bilinear Texture Filter
- 1024x768; 32 bit; Lightmap Lighting; High Detail; 32-bit Texture Quality; Trilinear Texture Filter
The two final graphical tests are quite definite that this notebook is not for playing games. The integrated graphics core is roughly equal to GMA950 which means that heavy 3D games are going to look like a slideshow on it.
The notebook’s battery life was measured with Battery Eater Pro 2.60. The test was performed at the maximum screen brightness in the following modes:
- Classic (the system bears the maximum and evenly distributed load)
- Reader’s test (the pages are scrolled through each 15 seconds)
- DVD mode (a DVD movie is launched in Battery Eater’s Idle test mode)
The ASUS A6Rp can be praised here. It can last almost 3 hours on its battery, which is a good result compared with other notebooks.
Here are the battery discharge diagrams for the different operation modes.
