CPU Performance

We will measure the performance of the CPU using SiSoft Sandra 2007, Everest Ultimate Edition 2006, and Cinebench v9.5’s CPU rendering test. These are low-level tests which do not replicate real-world results, but offer a good standard measurement to compare CPU performance across platforms.

Keep in mind that these tests are not a measurement of total system performance, rather provides a very close look at the processor the vendor has chosen to include in this particular review sample sent to PC Perspective.

Alienware Aurora m9700 with AMD ML-44 (2.4 GHz)
Asus W2J with Intel T2500 (2.0 GHz)
Dell XPS M1710 with Intel T2600 (2.33 GHz)
Asus W7J with Intel T2400 (1.83 GHz)

Alienware Aurora m9700 with AMD ML-44 (2.4 GHz)
Asus W2J with Intel T2500 (2.0 GHz)
Dell XPS M1710 with Intel T2600 (2.33 GHz)
Asus W7J with Intel T2400 (1.83 GHz)

Before jumping to the obvious conclusion, we must remember that the Turion ML-44 2.0GHz processor on the Aurora m9700 is a single-core CPU, not a Turion X2. So the CPU benchmarks above obviously show the Alienware Aurora m9700 falling behind the Intel CoreDuo laptops.
