Acer Aspire V3-772G-9460 Notebook
 
I bit the bullet and ordered a new laptop at Newegg:

Acer Aspire V3-772G-9460 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4702MQ (2.20GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD 120GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8 64-bit.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834314160

The monitor has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, which is a 16:9 aspect ratio. Lower resolutions with a 16:9 aspect ratio include 1366x768 and 1600x900.

So far things are running great as I've spent most of the day upgrading to Windows 8.1, removing bloatware, installing my apps and games and creating a recovery drive that I can boot from.

I'll post similar benchmarks as I did in the last laptop I purchased a little over a year ago:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=203843

You can check out the general performance of the GeForce GTX 760M here:

http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.92068.0.html

Quote:

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M is a upper mid-range DirectX 11-compatible graphics card for laptops. In contrast to the GTX 660M, the 760M now uses the GK106 chip and offers twice the amount of shaders at a slightly reduced core speed. However, the memory bus is still only 128 Bit wide.

As a novelty, the GeForce 700M series implements GPU Boost 2.0 to automatically overclock the core clock rate. Depending on the cooling headroom of the laptop and the application / game, up to 15 % performance gains are possible.
Quote:

The Kepler architecture is the successor to the Fermi architecture that first appeared in laptops with the GeForce 400M series. The GK106 Kepler core offers five shader blocks, called SMX, that are clocked at the same speed as the central core. In the GTX 760M, four blocks are active for a total of 768 CUDA cores. Although the Kepler architecture can utilize more shader cores than a Fermi chip, its shaders can be up to twice as power efficient. However, due to the missing hot clock of the shader domain, two shaders of a Kepler chip are of similar speed to one shader of a Fermi chip (as the latter is clocked twice as fast).
PCIe 3.0 is now supported by the mobile Kepler series and an optional Turbo mode can automatically overclock the Nvidia card by a theoretical 15 percent if the laptop cooling system allows it. The implementation of this boost mode is done in the BIOS, but it is ultimately dependent upon the manufacturer of the laptop.
Quote:

The graphics performance of the GeForce GTX 760M is clearly above the GTX 660M thanks to the higher amount of shaders. Depending on the GPU Boost 2.0 up to 30 % better performance can be achieved (according to Nvidia).

In our tests with a quad-core of the Haswell generation, the GTX 760M performs on par with a GTX 670M or Radeon HD 8870M. In demanding games like Crysis 3, BioShock Infinite or Hitman: Absolution the GTX760M is able to achieve good framerates in high details and 1366x768 pixels. Less demanding games like Dead Space 3, Modern Warfare 3 or Deus Ex Human Revolution were even playable in Full HD and maximum details.
Quote:

The feature set of the GTX760M is identical to the GTX670MX as both are based on the same GK106 core. Therefore the GPU supports up to 4 active displays. Furthermore, high resolution monitors of up to 3840x2160 pixels can now be connected using DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 1.4a if available. HD-Audio codecs, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD, can be transmitted via bitstream mode through the HDMI port. However, as most laptops will feature Optimus, the integrated GPU will likely have direct control over the display ports and may limit the feature set available by the Nvidia Kepler cards.

The 5th generation PureVideo HD video processor (VP5) is also integrated in the GK104 core and offers hardware decoding of HD videos. Common codecs such as MPEG-1/2, MPEG-4 ASP, H.264 and VC1/WMV9 are fully supported up to 4K resolutions while VC1 and MPEG-4 are supported up to 1080p. Two streams can be decoded in parallel for features such as Picture-in-Picture. Finally, the dedicated video encoding engine called NVENC API similar to Intel QuickSync is integrated in the chip.

The power consumption of the GeForce GTX 760M should be similar to the GTX 660M (50W) and is therefore best suited for large notebooks (15-inches or greater) and desktop replacements.

Results from PassMark's PerformanceTest with the Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics:

http://www.passmark.com/baselines/V8...id=23448211321

Quote:

The "PassMark Rating" is a combination of the CPU, 2D, 3D, Memory and Disk Ratings, the bigger the number, the faster the computer. The exact formula for this calculation is as follows.

1 / (((1 / (CPU Rating * 0.396566187)) + (1 / (2D Rating * 3.178718116)) + (1 / (3D Rating * 2.525195879)) + (1 / (Memory Rating * 1.757085479)) + (1 / (Disk Rating * 1.668158805)))/5)

In this formula each rating is weighted then inverted, the average of these values is taken and then inverted again. The weight multipliers were calculated from the hundreds of thousands of baselines collected in PerformanceTest 7. The score is also calculated in such a way that a single extremely high value cannot significantly improve the final score. Conversely, a single low score can drag the score down significantly using this formula. All components in a system must be performing well in order for the final score to be high.

The easiest way to compare your result with the results of other machines is to use the Baseline Management window to search for and download other users baselines from our online database. You may also upload your own baseline to our database once you have a complete set of results.
The following page compares the performance to 6 other systems.

http://www.nvnews.net/articles/acer_...rk-Results.htm

The following graphics cards were installed on each system:

System 1 - NVIDIA GeForce GT 630
System 2 - ATI Radeon HD 5770
System 3 - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
System 4 - Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
System 5 - AMD Radeon HD 6950
System 6 - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

Note that my initial 2D and 3D graphics benchmark were run on the Intel HD 4600 and not the GeForce GTX 760M. I did further research on getting PassMark to use the GeForce GTX 760M as described here:

http://www.passmark.com/support/perf...ia_optimus.htm

Quote:

If you are using a laptop with NVIDIA Optimus enabled, for example those with GeForce GT 420M, 425M, 435M, 445M, 520M, 525M, 540M, 550M and 555M video cards, optimus may not correctly switch to the high performance video card when running PerformanceTest. Consequently the 3D score might not be as high as it should be as it may have been using the power saving and slower on board graphics.
http://www.nvnews.net/articles/acer_...d-settings.png

Kind of disappointing that the benchmark doesn't have the performance option to use one over the other. To be sure that the GeForce GTX 760M is always going to be used, the preferred graphics processor can also be set to "High-performance NVIDIA processor" under the Global Settings (vs. Program Settings) tab. However the NVIDIA driver may override this setting to ensure compatibility.

Updated: The updated PassMark results with the GeForce GTX 760M are here:

http://www.passmark.com/baselines/V8...id=23454301365.

With the Intel HD 4600 the overall PassMark rating was 2782 with a 3D Graphics Mark of 624. With the GeForce GTX 760M the results were 3709 and 1874.

The updated comparison to the 6 other systems is here:
http://www.nvnews.net/articles/acer_...rk-Results.htm



The 2D graphics, memory and disk scores were 4 out of 5 stars or better as shown in each of the links to the PassMark scores.

Here are results from the advanced memory read test. The laptop has 12MB of Kingston ACR16D3LS1KFG/4G PC3-12800 installed:

Here are results from the advanced memory write test:

Drive C is a TOSHIBA THNSNH128GMCT SSD. It takes about 7 seconds from the Acer splash screen to load the Windows 8 splash screen :)
