Lenovo Y580 3DMark Vantage

2012-10-16, 17:44 PM

The Y580 is awesome, if I have one critic though of the laptop it is the HDD.The space of one 1TB is more than enough but realy seems to hold it back. The Y580 scores 9,305 on 3D mark Vantage while the HP dv6 scores 10,108 with a lower end GPU(GT 650M). The HP has the same CPU and RAM but a 7200RPM HDD. Does the HDD in the HP really make that much difference? Or is it beating the Lenovo in some other way? Maybe drivers...I dont know. The GTX 660m should easily beat the GT 650m...

Not all Y580's are the same.

 

I don't know how much difference it makes myself, but that is the thought that promted me to get the 500GB 7200 rpm HD. Speed more than size was right for me. The SSD combined with the slower HD in another model is another way to go, but didn't make sense for me since I didn't need that much space anyway, and I wanted to keep the price under $1000 (at the time of the sale).

I have read a few reviews where others were disappointed with the speed of the bigger drives so I opted for the 500GB as well because it is a bit faster I am thinking I may still couple this drive with an SSD and 16GB of RAM to get it smokin" fast.
