New laptop, score not much better than old laptop

Recommended Posts


Hoping some of you can help me to see if my results are normal but they seem low to me

Old laptop is a dell inspiron 17r i5 3337u dual core 8gb ram, samsung ssd & onboard intel hd graphics 4000

This was all set on balanced mode

Total score: 780
CPU: 394
Ram 186 - 14269 MB/s
GPU: 115 - Direct3d11: 5FPS - OpenCL: 213 GFLOPS
Disk: 85 - write 499MB/s read 459MB/s

New laptop is a 13" dell 2-in-1

Intel i5 7200u kaby lake, 4gb (single stick). 128gb SSD sandisk, Intel HD graphics 620 (which is supposed to be 89% better)

This is all on performance mode. I have been changing settings on the intel graphics application to try and get the best possible results. Best I was able to get on the GPU was 163 but can't remember how I did. 

Total score: 864

CPU:  507 

Ram: 128  - 9637MB/s

GPU: 163 - Direct3d11 11FPS - OpenCL: 370GFLOPS

Disk: 66 - write 219MB/s read: 457MB/s


I know the cpu score is much better but the GPU score hardly  seems better at all. I use fusion360 for cad and it seems to run almost the same on both laptops and still says my graphics may not be optimized. I have all the latest drivers on both and the onboard vram on the old laptop is 32mb and the new one is 128mb. 

I have disabled prefetch and superfetch in windows 10 on the new laptop and uninstalled mcafee. Not sure if there are any other tweaks I can do? 

Any help is appreciated
