Review Acer Aspire 8920G notebook
Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 | NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GS | 18.40" | 4.2 kg
The 9650M is a higher clocked 9500M GS and the successor of the 8700M GT (same chip but other spinning). Therefore, the performance should be on par with the 8700M GT.
The graphic card offers DirectX 10 support like the predecessor. However, the performance is not sufficient to represent the effects of exigent games like Crysis or World in Conflict fluently. (because they are combined with highest detail level). Older DirectX 9 games should run fluently with high details.
A particularity of the graphic card are the "Unified Shaders" or ALUs (arithmetic logical units). There are no dedicated pixel- or vertex shaders any more but 32 so claled stream processors do the graphic work (in former days that was the job of the pixel and vertex shaders). The advantage is that theoretically there is no idle time of the ALUs. The stream processors of NVIDIA are 1-dimensional (1D) and are able to make one skalar operation with one MADD- (addition and multiplication) and MUL-operation (multiplication). Furthermore, NVIDIA cloks the shader-ALUs somewhat higher than the remaining chip.
Due to the PureVideo HD engine, the 9650M GS is able to accellerate the decoding of HD videos in H.264, VC-1, MPEG2, and WMV9.

The following benchmarks stem from our benchmarks of review laptops. The performance depends on the used graphics memory, clock rate, processor, system settings, drivers, and operating systems. So the results don't have to be representative for all laptops with this GPU. For detailed information on the benchmark results, click on the fps number.

The following benchmark tests were conducted with our review sample of the Acer Aspire 8920G. Other configurations and notebooks can show varying results.
Crysis : 1024x768, med: 25-27 fps -> playable (for fully playable reduce details tolow)
Unreal Tournament 3: 1280x800, details 3/5: 44-60 fps -> fully playable
Call of Duty 4: 1280x800, med details: 35-50 fps -> fully playable
Supreme Commander (Gameplay, Multiplayer 2vs2): 1024x768, med: 5-30 fps ->playable
Race Driver Grid: 1024x768, med: 25-35 fps -> fully playable
Die obigen Spieletests beweisen, das die 9650M GS für aktuelle Spiele (Stand 04.2008) ausreichend Leistung zur Verfügung stellt (einige fordernde Spiele jedoch nicht in höchster Auflösung darstellen kann). Elder DirectX 9 games should be fully playable with high details and high resolutions.
