ASUS K50IN Series Notebook
3DMark06 has been around for a while now (well 4 or so years...), and despite being considered as more of a synthetic benchmark it can still give a good indication of general graphical performance. To be honest, we was planning on using 3DMark Vantage (the latest version) instead, but due to Vantage not supporting any of the K50IN's screen resolutions we had to settle for '06.
Call of Duty 4 is somewhat of an old favorite among the editors here at Overclock3D. Unfortunately for a lot of our testing nowadays it has really started to show its age. However, being that the K50IN doesn't sport the latest hgh-end graphics card, using a game that's a few years old is probably a better option.
FarCry2 might well be considered a big of an optimistic choice for a no-frills notebook, but with every quality setting either turned off or set to its lowest option, it'll be interesting to see whether the DirectX 10 GPU in the G102M can actually cope with a DX10 game.
Stop, stop, stop. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard. Despite the promising sounds of "GeForce", "512MB VRAM" and "DirectX 10" it's blatantly obvious that the ASUS K50IN with its Nvidia G102M GPU can't game at its native resolution for toffee. The now ancient Call of Duty 4 barely hit 20FPS even with AA turned off, and FarCry2 was so much of a slideshow even at its lowest settings that it felt like there should have been a handle on the side of the notebook to wind it up.
Let's move swiftly on to the conclusion.
