Real Users' Benchmarks - Rank of PCS Laptops

Soooooo ...
When i follow the guidline from ferrarivie, it's better
(i did not use the performance mode and the fan at full speed last time...)

The laptop is still a 17" recoil with a 3080 and an i7-11700k ;)

Otherwise, i didn't use any overclocking (or underclocking) and i don't have a cooling pad

the result :

 
Just benched my Recoil 15"..... errrmmm! EDIT: Not Iconio (I have something very similiar from Cyberpower PC)

(Thats quite hillariously bad considering NBrooke has a similiar machine!)

I'll try with dGPU only and see what I get, that might be intergrated graphics

Looks like you need to update your drivers.

Looking at your other thread I see you didn’t order with Windows, so I expect it’s not been configured properly as you are missing drivers

Second standard benchmark with the AMD drivers and nVidia drivers updated.

Interestingly, after I checked, the AMD drivers were installed but comming up as standard VGA device in 3DM. I've forced windows to now use the dGPU (is that a dGPU result?) on that program. I still wonder despite using the turbo profile that the score was 14,125 to start with.




I also benched it in the weirdest way possible which is why my monitor resolution is so low. (1440x900). It allows for plenty of airflow! :) If you are wondering where the triangle cutouts came from, they came from my 2016 Apple Macbook Pro when I had it delivered, then cut a hole in the triangular packaging which makes a nice stand. Add an external monitor/kb/mouse and you have a desktop.

Second bench in this post is iGPU only - I.e. the Ryzen IGP, I've done this as I wanted to see what the benchmark was. So I disabled the nVidia graphics chip.... BAD IDEA. The external display stopped working completely, so I had to take it off the stand. I'd usually use the power supply to prop the laptop up. Not this way, I used a 2 in 1 tablet from eBay (EGL thing), which stopped it heating up too much.

Before anyone asks, "why would you want to know the score of the iGPU?" Gaming on the move, so you know what score to expect when on battery power. I use laptops a lot because of my commute mainly.

Now if ONLY I could post the bench to my PCS Cosmos IX (with the MX350 gpu), I know that will be bottom of the board but every time I bench it, it decides to hide the result. I think I have a work around - Windows 10 on a USB stick, then install 3D mark on that. Well m.2 to SATA 3.0 as there is something stopping it doing so.
If you are interested in that machine, the best bench I got was on firestrike 4162 - or between 3997 to 4162, which puts it at the bottom of the board, this is with a i5-10300H/16GB/256GB intel optane (yes I've upgraded that machine too!).
 
Sorry guys, I've been away for a few days.. Will update the ranks tomorrow (y)
And thinking of something, would it be worth encouraging those with non gaming laptops to benchmark there's? Obviously they'd be on the board possibly nearer the bottom, but its also interesting to see how they perform compared to gaming laptops. (Benchmarking a Gemini 14.1" laptop anyone?).

New Ionico 17", dGPU, performance mode, all stock:


EDIT: Think you got my CPU wrong, mate. Should be a Ryzen 9 5900HX

No, the options on Windows is just telling it to use the dedicated (or integrated) as the primary GPU for that game/software. To be considered dGPU only you need to change the settings in the BIOS, as that will bypass the iGPU completely and give you a few extra FPS. But keep in mind that this mode will highly impact battery life since even windows and other simple tasks will use your power-hungry 3080.

What I find interesting about this result is that the physics score also got dropped drastically somehow? I didn't expect the GPU to have any impact on the physics score as it should be CPU only, but either it does have an impact or the CPU needs to share resources with the iGPU and this is why its performance also decreases. Does anyone know the answer to this?

If you could get the 3dmark link to the results, I'm indeed interested in adding it to the rank. It's great for generation comparisons ;) . And so you know, I had a Dell with an i5 6300HQ / 12Gb RAM / GTX 960m and got exactly the same 4k around score in firestrike.

Yeah, of course... why not? :) The rank is open to any PCS laptop, not necessarily only the gaming ones ;)

Ok, can anyone explain what's going on here, it seemed to keep glitching out, I think the only part than ran fully was demo

It will appear to glitch out because it does several tests. Once the end of the demo is finished, it does several other tests, such as physics, rendering, etc - which are done via reloading. You got all the way through so it counted as a pass. If you failed, it would tell you failed and the reason why, such as test cancelled by user. Still, not a bad bench, its making my TongFang quiver :)

if you look at the result you'll see it had an impossible frame rate message which i posted here but now been moved to own thread
