[quote=kypen]Quake 3 isn't accurate by any means for benching today's games. 3DMark2003/05, HL2, Doom 3, Far Cry, these TAX a system.QUOTE]
Sorry I forgot to include this lil bit from Tom's...We have expanded the benchmark suite to include the game Farcry. "What took you so long?" many will ask. The simple answer to this question is that until now it hardly made sense to test notebooks with this game. This is because the graphics performance of the average notebook is simply too poor. For the tests in Far Cry we use the Cooler01 time demo. It measures performance in an indoor level (Cooler). For all tests, we enabled the flashlight of the protagonist in order to put more stress on the graphics processor. Moreover, we use the highest quality level.
Hope that puts that notion to rest
