60% ASUS X55C-DS31 15.6-inch
Source: Comp Reviews English
The ASUS X55C remains one of the better priced laptops on the market and they have tried to update a few of the features but a number of the issues that plagued the design still remain. The problem is that most of the competition has either caught up or surpassed ASUS in terms of battery life, peripheral ports or storage.

Asus reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS: Middle class GPU that ist about 10% faster than a similar clocked GeForce 8600M GT graphics adapter. Therefore, the card does not deliver enough performance for very high details with DirectX 10 effects of demanding games like Crysis.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Intel HD Graphics 2500: In the desktop Ivy Bridge CPUs (Core ix-3xxx) integrated processor graphics card. The HD 2500 is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

NVIDIA GeForce 610M: Entry level graphics card based on the older GeForce GT 520M or GeForce GT 520MX.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 6290:

Integrated graphics card in some Ontario netbook processors (e.g. C-60) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory. Compared to the HD 6250, the 6290 features Turbo Core to overclock automatically to 400MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T9300:

The T9300 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and similar to the T9400 but with a lower FSB.

Intel Core i3:

2370M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card.

3120M: Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, 2.5 GHz core clock (no turbo), includes HD 4000 GPU

Intel Celeron:

1000M: Entry level 1.8 GHz dual core processor with integrated graphics card called Intel HD Graphics and reduced features of the Ivy Bridge core (no Turbo Boost, AES, ...).

AMD C-Series:

C-60:

Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. Due to the low clock speed, the CPU should be only as fast as a single core Atom CPU, but offers a faster integrated GPU.


15.4: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

2.4 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

3 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


71.25%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
