The Lamborghini VX1 is one step ahead of its opponent in the last of our graphics subsystem tests. It is the higher CPU frequency coupled with dual-channel memory and a somewhat higher core frequency that do the trick. But as soon as we disconnect the notebooks from the mains their speeds get closer to each other.

Summarizing the graphics-related tests, we should acknowledge that the ASUS Lamborghini is quite a speedy machine, even though not the world’s fastest.

And finally Battery Eater Pro 2.60 is going to show us how long the notebook can go on working on its battery. 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)

This is quite an impressive result for such a speed-targeted configuration. Under the same test conditions the ASUS V6J is lagging behind although has a weaker (and, presumably, less hungry) hardware configuration. So, the racing notebook can run for four hours in normal mode or for as long as 2.5 hours at full speed!

Here are the battery discharge diagrams for the different operation modes.
