Yeah, it's a decent score. We don't record particular model numbers, so I can't compare it to other M15s, however.

If you're looking to improve it, going from 4GB to 8GB RAM is a pretty easy upgrade.

Thanks Nathan,

Would a normal computer shop be able to do that for me, sorry to sound dumb but what would that do to laptop

cheers

Yes, any shop can do that. It's also a fairly easy thing to install yourself, if you don't mind researching what part to buy.

The upgrade should provide a noticeable increase in speed. It's getting easier to fill up 4GB of RAM in normal usage.

If you're interested in what happens technically, running out of memory requires some of it to be stored on the hard drive, which is very slow.

Looks like your CPU is already pretty overclocked. You could try OCing your GPU as well. Other than that, hardware upgrades are your next option. Having an SSD instead of an HDD will show considerable speed improvements.

I have ran the benchmark and am posting the results. Is there an area or tools to find out how to improve the results?

Thanks,

this is a core2duo from some years back, : just replaced the one set of RAM's on RMA from Crucial.
old memory was 2x 2x1 , now is 1of2x1 and 1of2x2
the system recognising only 4992 of RAM, tried to switch the modules from 1-3 to 2-4 but it did not boot.
should i leave only the new set os 2x2 giga on system ?

OS on ssd OCZ, quite good bootable times..

OC's the cpu @2.000 and RAM's @ 2.0 V

should you propose me something to make my scores better ??



thank you ))

Well I have a whole range of scores from a low of

390104.png.

to a high of

390091.png

And everything in between.

I have a dual boot system and my Win7 side almost always out-performs my Win8 side using the same hardware.

Win 7 range: 816-1080

Win8 range: 646 - 833

I have two HD6670 GPU cards and a A10-5800K APU. Sometimes I run the two cards Xfired, other times the APU & one of the HD6670 Xfired in what AMD calls "dual graphics mode". I have also tried tests with the Xfire / Dual graphic capacity switched off so I'm just using one HD6670 GPU. (I could disabled both GPU's and just run the test on the APU alone but I have not done this).

Sometimes I made note in the Comments about my Xfire set up, sometimes not. It would be nice if the quick graphic of the score showed if the GPU's were Crossfired or not. It does show "dual graphics mode" You can just make out the word "Dual"... on the GPU line on this sample. When it is two HD6670s Crossfired this is not noted unless I put it into Comments manually. I also just noticed something - this "dual graphics" notation only works in Win8. I ran a Win7 test today and I know dual graphics were enabled, but this does not show up on today score. Interesting difference.

347934.png

Looking back I notice that in one comment I wrote that I increased my score from 740 to 953 by disabling the Xfire function. Having said that my top scores are with the two GPU's Crossfired and in Win7.

These score do seem to be all over the map, even in the same OS where there is a 32% (win7) to 29% (win8) difference from the lowest to the highest score. To be fair I also have an unlocked APU and do tweak my system, changing the OC settings. Most of the tests are at 4200-4600 Mhz. One test reports 5441 Mhz. That is wrong, I've never clocked my system beyond 4.8 Ghz and then it crashed. 4.6 Ghz is the fasted it goes with reasonable stability, most of the time I have it at 4.4 Ghz which is my 'sweet spot" were I do not have any sudden system shut downs. There is no way it ran Novabench at 5.4 GHz. .

I've signed up for the Beta Testing and I'll have to see if there any any improvement in the consistency.
