It wouldn’t do to run 3DMark03 to test the graphical performance of these sub-notebooks as they are both equipped with rather weak Extreme Graphics 2 cores. I’m going to launch the older 3DMark 2001 SE benchmark instead. Its test scenes help to evaluate every performance-related aspect of the graphics subsystem of a computer.
And like in the previous tests, and due to the same reasons, the Fujitsu Siemens LIFEBOOK P7010 is ahead. The manufacturer is right in positioning this model as a business sub-notebook for office applications since it can hardly do as a gaming computer. The sub-notebooks can’t even launch some of the sub-tests like Game 4, Environment Bump Mapping, Pixel Shader 2.0, and Advanced Pixel Shader.
Next, I tested the sub-notebook in Quake 3 , in two modes:
- 640x480; 16 bit; Lighting: Vertex; Detail: Low; Texture Quality:16 bit; Texture Filter:Bilinear
- 1024x768; 32 bit; Lighting: Lightmap; Detail: High; Texture Quality:32 bit; Texture Filter:Trilinear
The Fujitsu Siemens LIFEBOOK P7010 is a little faster, most likely due to the higher memory frequency, yet this doesn’t make it suitable for playing games anyway.
