Benchmark Results: Productivity
Adobe Photoshop mirrors what we saw from the threaded video encoding benchmarks on the previous page, demonstrating marginal performance differences between the cheaper Core i7-3700-series and higher-end -3800-series processors.
The performance spread gets wider under 3ds Max, far exceeding the 3% clock rate difference between each of our CPUs. The larger delta likely points, in part, to the Core i7-3720QM's smaller cache, though it could also be due to slightly less system memory operating at a lower data rate.
Our file compression suite, consisting of three different applications, gets us back to a marginal spread between the platforms we're comparing.
ABBYY FineReader confirms our repeated observation, that the Core i7-3720QM is nearly as powerful as the Core i7-3820QM.

It's quite the potent little power house isn't it.Reply
I can bet you one thing though the pricing won't be as potent lol.
This is based on the Clevo W110ER. What other Barebones can go as powerful as such in a small package.Reply
joytech22It's quite the potent little power house isn't it.I can bet you one thing though the pricing won't be as potent lol.It's based off a Clevo barebones, so it's the same as the Sager NP6110 which starts at $899Reply
I just wish they'd offer a screen better than 1366x768 (at least 1440x900 or such)
I have a first gen corei3 notebook. It runs fine, but battery isnt too great.Reply
But i wont be upgrading to anything till haswell is released.
Too bad they don't offer the GT650M 1GB GDDR5 which faster than the DDR3 version.....Reply

There is a bios mod for some crazy OC on the GPU. Although you are right amuffin, the GDDR3 on the GT 650m is a let down. You can get the W150ER at similar price (also has a bios mod for OC) with GT 650m GDDR5 although it is a 15 inch (but 1080p screen).9538812 said:Too bad they don't offer the GT650M 1GB GDDR5 which faster than the DDR3 version.....
shame about the resolution but a 11 inch mobile gaming machine is pretty appealing to me. i could get a few sneaky rounds on BF3 whilst on the toilet at work....Reply
The thing Im the most pumped about is the windows 7 physical media.Reply
scan have a version in the UK.Reply
the scan version comes with the 2gb 650MReply
