Performance: Eurocom Divine Duo M570U/Killer Notebooks Executioner

At a resolution of 1024x768 without and with anti-aliasing (AA) and anisotropic filtering (AF) the Executioner does a little better than the Divine. The Executioner has an Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GTX graphics processor that is optimized for applications us

At 1024x768 the results are close to dead even with Black & White 2.

Doom 3 is a CPU dependent game. At 1024x768 the Executioner's faster Core 2 Duo CPU (compared to the Divine's slower Core Duo CPU) gave the Executioner an edge.

The CPU advantage shows again at 1600x1200, but with 8xAF turned, on neither fast CPUs nor super graphics processors result in decent frame rates in Doom 3.

Not surprisingly the Executioner's slightly faster 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU performs significantly better than the Divine's 2.0 GHz Core Duo CPU.

We were surprised by the Executioner's significantly better memory score, given that both notebooks have the same motherboard and the same speed memory and that the same memory timings are. We are looking into these findings and will report any new inform

Here's another not surprising finding. Even though both notebooks use the same hard disk drives, the Executioner's SATA RAID disk set performed much better than the Divine's single disk drive.

Remember that the Killer Notebooks Executioner has the same display as the Eurocom Divine Duo. However, don't expect the two displays to perform the same. Differences in samples along with the amount of time the displays have been used can lead to signifi
