The notebooks are each equipped with Intel’s Graphics Media Accelerator 950, so I benchmarked them in 3DMark 2001 SE Pro as well as in 3DMark 2003 3.60.
3DMark uses a set of 3D scenes rendered by its own graphics engine to check the capabilities of a computer’s graphics subsystem.
3DMark agrees with the previous tests that the ASUS S6F has higher overall performance despite its weaker CPU. It enjoys a considerable advantage over its opponent here.
Next, I 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
This test doesn’t tell us anything new except that the ASUS W6F manages to win in the low-resolution mode when powered from the electric mains.
