Last Friday, Eurocom unveiled their Monster 1.0 gaming notebook, which is an 11.6" subnotebook that packs an NVIDIA GeForce GT650M and plays nice with both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors. Running a Core i7-3720QM, 2x4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 120GB Intel 520 SSD, the Monster 1.0 managed the following benchmarks:
- 3Mark Vantage: 9638, external display running at 1920x1080 pixels
- 3DMark 11: P2449, external display running at 1920x1080 pixels
- Unigine Haven 2.1 FPS: 30.3 (1,366 x 768 pixels)
- Unigine Heaven 2.1 Score: 763 (1,366 x 768 pixels)
On the other hand, AMD's latest Radeon HD 7970M, codenamed "Wimbeldon", is among the fastest graphics cards available at the moment, and it shows in the benchmarks. Both the 15.6" Racer 2.0 and the 17.3" Panther 4.0 can be equipped with the HD7970 and both excelled in benchmarks.
Powered by a Core i7-3820QM, 8GB of RAM and a 120GB Intel 520 SSD, the Racer 2.0 managed to total a score of P20753 in 3DMark Vantage. On the other hand, the Panther 4.0 was powered by an Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition and dual HD 7970s in CrossFireX, but managed to score a P31127 in 3DMark Vantage.
While the scores are definitely impressive for Eurocom's latest, it should be noted that results vary depending on multiple factors, and may not match up with our database.
