Testing Procedures

Our main test procedure is a series of CPU (timed tests of real-world applications) and GPU-centric (gaming tests and synthetics) benchmarks as well a brief test of the wireless adapter. Battery life is also examined by putting it through a simulation of active web browsing and playing a HD movie on a loop until the system shuts down.

The physical portion of our testing involves putting the system through various states (idle, HD playback, and video encoding with TMPGEnc) and recording stabilized system and external temperatures as well as the noise level in our anechoic chamber.

Certain services and features like Superfetch and System Restore are disabled to prevent them from affecting our results. We also make note if energy saving features like Cool'n'Quiet and SpeedStep do not function properly.
