3D Modeling

With two decent video adapters built into the Aurora mALX, the system should perform well in these tests but will the CPU hold it back?

Running professional modeling and rendering applications is fairly common these days thanks to increasingly powerful notebooks. The Aurora mALX plows through Spec ViewPerf and Cinebench fairly easily. The CPU is holding the performance back a little since 3D modeling is also very CPU intensive.
