EUROCOM M620NC Titanium: Performance

In comparison to the Tecra A8 the Eurocom M620NC Titanium's No AA No AF score doesn't look so hot. Though these two notebooks have the same integrated Intel graphics controller, the two have different CPUs. The M620NC Titanium as tested only has an Intel

In this slide it is obvious the difference a faster Intel Core Duo makes over a slower Intel Core Solo.

Most of the difference here is explained by FSB speeds. Eurocom's FSB is 533 MHz; the Toshiba's is 667 MHz.

The Hitachi Travelstar hard drive in the Eurocom runs at 7200 RPM so you'd expect it offer better performance than the Tecra's Fujitsu 5400 RPM drive. The difference? It could well come down to differences in performance between the SATA and IDE interface

The M620NC scores well in this benchmark even though it only includes one ultra low voltage core. It's performance is typical of notebooks with this CPU.

Battery longevity is a key selling point for a notebook in this class. At just over 3 hr the M620NC shows respectable though not exemplary battery life. Considering that it's using an ultra low voltage Intel Core Solo we would have expected better power

Given the previous slide, there are no big surprises here.

The M620NC's display as tested has a mean brightness of 154 candelas per square meter (cd/m^2) which is good. The display's minimum brightness is 110 cd/m^2; the maximum is 175 cd/m^2 for a brightness range of 65 cd/m^2. The broad range is evident on the

The Tecra's mean brightness of 127 cd/meter^2 is lower than the Eurocom's 154. The brightness range is 109 to 146 cd/meter^2; range 37 compared to the M620NC's 65. That's one of the reasons the Tosiba's brightness plot is so much flatter than the Eurocom'

The Eurocom's mean contrast or contrast ratio is adequate at 154. Minimum contrast is 110; the maximum is 121 for a range of 37. Fall-off on the top right corner of the display is notable.

The Tecra has a lower contrast ratio of 107 and a range of 56 (72 to 127). Compare the more extreme slope of the Tecra contrast plot with the less extreme M620NC plot.
