Whole System Performance

“System Performance” is a pretty broad heading, but in our case this means a series of tests that measure the performance of various parts of the system in unison. To test how the Alienware Aurora m9700 works as a whole system, we use PCMark 05 and World Bench to evaluate its effectiveness.

The Aurora m9700 comes up a big winner in hard drive and graphics performance which isn’t surprising since it does have RAID 0 and a fast GPU. CPU score is a bit lower comapred to the other systems but that’s expected.
