    Default 3DMark05 for various Notebooks & TabletPCs

    Data Updated: 2006.6.30, Prices Updated: 2006.6.26 (No taxes and shipping costs included in prices.)
    Take into consideration that prices are valid for specified configurations, and that they can vary a lot with different configurations...
    The configurations as presented are what I'd call "suitable" to specific notebook; e.g. 2x100GB disks in RAID1 for Rock notebooks.


    I hope this chart helps you when making a decision about which Notebook or TabletPC to buy,
    especially if you consider playing latest games on it, or using 3D intense programs, even MS Vista.


    Information for this chart was gathered from two of the greatest notebook related sources:
    1) NotebookReview.com website, Forum Graphics Card Guide --- my thread 3DMark05 for various notebooks
    2) RockDirect.co.uk website, Forum Benchmarking Index --- my thread 3DMark05 for various notebooks
    I recommend checking both of these sources, to see more ifnormation and various useful opinions of posters...
    Note that one of the important information missing in specifications provided is warranty! I recommend checking that too.


    Important instructions for further researching:
    -- Clicking on 3DMark05 scores in 1st column will take you to notebook reviews (if available).
    -- Clicking on prices in 2nd column will take you to online shops (if available).
    -- Clicking on notebok names in 4th column will take you to official sites of notebook producers (if available).


    Sorted by 3DMark05 Scores (1st column - higher is better) - all default settings, no overclocking
    Note1: For easier distinction font for TabletPCs is in different color than font for Notebooks.
    Note2: For playing modern 3D games at medium settings/resolution look for notebooks which scored above 2000.
    Notebooks which scored above 4000 are capable of playing most modern 3D games at high settings/resolution.
    (Take this information just as a 'guidline', since 3DMark05 is only a synthetic benchmark - good one, but still...)

    Sorted by Score/Price ratio (3rd column - higher is better)
    Note: "Score/Price ratio" represents how many 3DMark05 points you get for EACH $1, in other words "speed for money".
    Keep in mind though, that some notebooks have 2 GB memory vs 1 GB memory, and 2x 100 GB disk vs 100 GB disk etc.

    Let me put here my personal opinion for best notebooks in specific categories based on the above tables:
    -- Best value for gaming & work (3D apps etc.): Rock Xtreme CTX -- due core CPU, 2GB RAM, great portability for such power, good price
    -- Best for gaming & work (3D, video editing, ...): Rock Xtreme 64 -- 64bit CPU for WinVista, 2x 100 GB HDDs (RAID!), 2GB RAM, but heavy
    -- Best value for gaming: FSC Amilo Xi 1546 -- faster CPU than the Toshiba below (better for work), 2GB RAM, great price
    -- Second best value for gaming: Toshiba P105-S921 -- huge 160GB disk for many space-needy games, great price
    -- Fastest for gaming: Rock Xtreme SL -- much better 3DMark05 score than Dell XPS M1710! 2GB RAM, 19" LCD, but heavy
    -- Most portable for gaming: Asus W3J -- very good gaming capabilities, it's thin and light (2.2kg)
    -- Cheapest duo core for work but weaker gaming: Toshiba A6 -- for gaming is weaker than Dell 9300, but for multi-tasking way better
    -- Cheapest of all here and still good for gaming: Dell 9300 -- for now you can still get one even under $700 (with coupon), single CPU though
    -- Fastest TabletPC, good for gaming: Gateway M285-E -- it's fast, it's light, up to 8.5h battery! (adding 1GB of RAM not cheap tho, +$450)
    -- TabletPC for 3D work & decent for gaming: Toshiba M7-117 -- it's fast, it's light, excellent battery life, for size it's perfect for 3D apps


    Same chart as above in graphic format:

    Numbers are way off on the Clevo...my brand new M570A @ 2Ghz cost a little over $2000 without memory...and my stock card clocked 6940's with 84.25 drivers....I understand its almost impossible to make a completely accurate list, but I thought I'd let you know since I just got mine 2 weeks ago and I love it...

    edit: I noticed you used mostly 100GB drives for price comparison, mine is an 80GB 7200 so I guess it did cost a bit less then the clevo you have listed, but not by that much.

    Good work and nice list...will save people some time I'm sure...

    You may want to recheck those figs.....I have an E1705 with only the 1.83 core duo....and my bone stock 3DMark figure was well above 3837....it was more like 4700ish.
    Dell E1705: 1.83GHz Core Duo, 256mb GeForce 7800 (OC'd), 2gig RAM. 3dMark05 = 5503.

    my sig
    1388 at standard clock (300/216) with omega drivers
    1455 at 339/229 with omega drivers

    I'll get back to you with more. apparently dell underclocks alot of their graphics cards, standard on the desktop x300s is 350/400.

    That's an excellent chart, and a great idea. Mind if I put a link to it in the Graphics Card Guide?

    You can add my Sager NP-5320 to the list if you want - 3DMark05 stock: ~2800. OC'ed (400:392 & modified timings) = 3,300.

    Thanks again,

    The Acer Aspire 5672WLMi can be found for alot cheaper than $1555 (and for long while ago too)
    the cheapest one on pricegrabber is $1075... and others a lil over that price...

    edit: in fact most of those listed prices are kinda inflated :/

    Thanks for all the replies, will update prices and add presented data...

    (Sure, anyone can use this chart on their will, and feel free to change/fix anything...)

    Will also add links to reviews from where I've got 3DMark05 scores...

    Any further info appreciated. Have fun.

    This might be too much of a headache to do, but you might want to check to see whether those prices include a 3-year warranty, as most of those prices are without one. The Quanta's price is with a 3-year warranty, so it's $135 less in a more comparable configuration.

    Nice work, though.
