Both the notebook samples are equipped with discrete graphics solutions, so we tested them only in 3DMark 2003 3.60.
3DMark uses a set of 3D scenes running on its own graphics engine to check every performance-related aspect of the graphics subsystem.
The 1.83GHz ASUS V6J (V6X00J) wins this test again due to the same reasons: it has a slightly higher CPU frequency and two times more of (faster) system RAM. The results are similar again when the notebooks work on their batteries.
Next, I tested the notebooks in Quake 3 , in two modes:
- 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 tech sample is again a bit faster when attached to an AC power source. Working on the batteries, the notebooks deliver roughly the same performance.
The results of the notebooks in Unreal Tournament 2003 agree with the earlier tests. As you can see, the Nvidia GeForce GO 7400 graphics card is a rather high-performance solution, so the ASUS V6J (V6X00J) can also be viewed as a gaming computer.
