Performance Part 1: Processor and General
Sporting an Intel Core i7-4710HQ CPU, 16GB DDR3L RAM, and a 3 GB NVIDIA GeForce 970M GPU, we should be able to expect respectable performance from the G751JT. There’s just one sticking point: the 1 TB hard drive (a Hitachi 7200 RPM model), which of course pales in comparison to any SSD. So while general system performance is surely going to suffer a bit, processing speed during games and CPU-intensive activity should hopefully prove no issue.
On a side note, if you’re interested in upgrading your notebook aftermarket, you’ll be pleased to know that the machine accepts up to 32 GB of RAM, and, as we mentioned earlier, the second hard drive bay is already equipped with an empty mounting bracket to make the addition of an SSD quick and painless.
So, let’s see how this thing holds up.
Performance – Processor
SiSandra Processor Arithmetic
The G751JT’s CPU holds up well against the field, which is to be expected considering it matches the GT72’s (i7-4710HQ).
It’s the same story for Cinebench, which also places the G751JT near the front of the pack.
Finally, Peacekeeper’s judgment of the speed of the PC, while heavily browser dependent, assigns the G751JT a 4483 (running in Chrome).
We expect application performance to be subdued in comparison to the CPU/GPU performance as, again, the mechanical hard drive is easily the weakest link in the equation.
Unsurprisingly, for all its CPU/GPU prowess, the G751JT positions itself as the weakest of the bunch due to its comparatively slow mechanical hard drive. The score of 3980 is over 1,300 lower than the nearest competitor, the MSI GE40.
