It is now in the series of graphics tests that we are going to see some dramatic differences. I am now going to benchmark the discrete GeForce Go 7400 graphics processors installed in the reviewed notebooks, so I will use only one test, 3DMark 2003 3.60.
Some of the results have grown four or fivefold. When powered by the battery, the notebooks’ graphics performance is lower, but not too much. Let’s see now what we have in other tests.
Now you can see that the SZ series with Nvidia’s GeForce Go 7400 GPU is good enough for gaming, even when working on the battery, as is indicated by the performance of the two notebooks in the 3D games. So, it’s a matter of changing the position of the slider to transform an office applications oriented notebook into a quite powerful gaming station.
