PerformanceThere isn’t anything exotic about the 2.4 GHz Core i3 processor inside the ASUS U33JC, but that’s not a bad thing. The Core i3 processor is, at this point, a known entity – and what we know is that it is a good processor. Let’s take a look at the SiSoft Sandra processor and memory benchmarks first.
Now let’s head over to the Futuremark benchmark suites to see how the U33JC holds up in 3DMark 06, 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage.
Overall, there isn’t much to complain about when it comes to raw power. Indeed, ASUS deserves praise for balancing the laptop’s CPU and GPU so well. The U33JC isn’t the quickest laptop on the market, but it is clearly at an advantage when compared to most ultraportables.
