I dont think they are selling different stuff in UK but i just dont understand how 2 people get 2 completely different scores on almost identical laptops. Hope someone in the us can do a 5th benchmark. We ran it multiple loops. Word of advise. Do not use cool bits on this. I didnt try but i ve had bad experience with coolbits many times. The later edition of riva tuner works great. The only thing i found extremely weird is that the closer you get to the max overclock limit the lower your score goes. Found the best combination to be 290/575 but you may try just a bit higher on the core. I wouldnt trust factory published scores and timings. They lie...simply put.
Hey, I did take the brightness down to 60%, I took off the ambient light assist. I will do another battery test again to be even more constructive. But I might be reading something wrong.
As for the 3d mark scores put it on super performance, get better 3dmark scores. So coolbits is not good? Seems to be okay for me but I'll try the riva tuner
