Computations and Rendering

For a lot of users, laptops are a tool for business and work. In some applications, how well the laptop processes numbers is critical to being productive away from the office. Here we will test the W2J’s ability to crunch numbers by seeing how it performs in ScienceMark and SuperPi (both number processing tests), and Spec ViewPerf and CineBench (both 3D modelling / rendering applications).

If there is something you’re going to take away from the Spec ViewPerf and Cinebench results above, it’s that the brand and model of GPU matters most. The Asus W2J and Asus A7J perform very similarly because they both have a ATI Radeon Mobility X1600, despite having different CPUs and memory configurations. The GeForce Go 7900 GS performs significantly different from the ATI, with some scores worse than ATI.
