IVB of the i7 quad-core CPU ASUS N56VM laptop evaluation (Ezine Ready)
According to Moore’s Law, the integration density of electronic chips every 18 months will be doubled, so basically every year and a half of electronic products will upgrade generation. Among the upgrading of the computer is especially even more speed, you know this time last year, Intel has just released its latest SNB platform processor and a year later, Intel and we brought it The next-generation the IVB platform of processors, and better performance than the SNB platform.
Today we bring a equipped with the latest the IVB platform processor laptop – Asus N56VM It is equipped with Intel Core i7-3610QM processor (clocked at 2.30GHz), the GT630M separate graphics card (2GB memory) as well as HD4000 integrated graphics, 6GB DDR3 memory, 750GB mechanical hard drive. Xiaobian through it to find out more about Ivy Bridge processor.
A surface of the the ASUS N56VM black brushed metal, metal anodizing coloring process, it is very durable, easily wipe off fingerprints children and perspiration stains with water, but in the high-precision camera lenses, those that mark is still very evident the existence of the above, Xiaobian deep feelings. This machine and before the series is not the same thing is it’s A side Logo, side A for ASUS ASUS N56VM Logo boot automatically lit, and it does not have a separate LED lights, but with the integration of the screen when The screen lights up when it will be lit at the same time, in the dark luminous the Logo is very eye-catching, and very beautiful.
ASUS N56VM still continues the tradition of the Asus N series video of this, 15.6-inch Full HD LED-backlit display, the best resolution of 1920 × 1080, the benefits of the matte screen is in the outdoors can reduce the grainy screen, to improve display effect. The top of the screen is still all the books of the standard – front camera.
15.6-inch notebook are affectionately known as “bricks and mortar,” This is not no reason, big, stupid, heavy, basically covering all the basic characteristics of large-size notebook. The testing room to bring the ASUS N56VM on this issue very seriously, but also made a corresponding change in thickness, the thickness of 35mm above the 15.6-inch notebook everywhere, and even some 14-inch notebook achieve such a thickness of the ASUS N56VM thick only about 30mm, front-end is 10mm, basically N56VM reached an extreme of 15.6 inches notebook.
From a weight point of view, the ASUS N56VM the whole weight 2.730kg, travel weight is 3.455kg, compared with the average 15.6-inch notebook, this weight is not dominant, but also a bit heavier, but you can disclose, the ASUS N56VM is there such a weight, because it contains “material”, and then we look down.
Basically, we understand from just the appearance of introduction The ASUS N56VM is what kind of design, then we look at it which interfaces can be used where set. Of N56VM of front-end and back-end are relatively simple, and only in the design of the bottom of the front left side more than one card reader, this setting is also very user-friendly, but this convenience a prerequisite is that you use N56VM period of time, or previous you must include the body lift can smooth the SD inserted.
Then we look at the ASUS N56VM interface is the most abundant of the “area”, the left side of the fuselage has a 2.5mm subwoofer interface, VGA, RJ45, the HDMI and two USB3.0 interface, and in the right side of the fuselage headset microphone jacks, two USB3.0 interface, as well as Blu-ray. Observant friend found the ASUS N56VM not set up traditional USB 2.0 interface, replaced by a four USB3.0 interface, from the point of view of transferring files, this is definitely a good, it can be to USB2.0 10 times the speed of transmission, and save a lot of time.
From the chart we can see the ASUS N56VM the keypad and palm rest is pretty neat, the top does not specifically set shortcut keys, but the convergence on the F1-F12 function keys to ensure the integrity of the keyboard area, while the bottom of the palm rest position does not have any stickers. N56VM for full-size chocolate keyboard design, buttons, key-way medium, good elasticity However, because the end of the palm rest does not use rounded corners, so will feel after a long time typing wrist a little uncomfortable.
More and more widely used in notebook computers, indoor and outdoor, bright and dark environments, needs The ASUS N56VM laptops with backlit keyboard design, to ensure the use of the user in the dark, bring a full range of applications. Users can also use the FN + F3 or F4 keys to adjust the keyboard backlight brightness according to their needs. ASUS light at night to use the ASUS N56VM backlit keyboard with side A Logo is very beautiful.
ASUS N56VM trackpad made of glass fiber reinforced plastic material, the high intensity of the FRP, a close look at the middle of the touchpad can be found, from the inside out spiral lines, and there are laser effects, touch pad area with your fingers feels feel with subtle ground glass, reinstall the finished system, use the touch pad, and often have the effect of the offset, but if that comes with the touchpad driver installed, no there will be such a problem.
ASUS N56VM notebook computer audio enthusiasts can meet the desire for excellent sound quality, ASUS exclusive vocal master SonicMaster jointly developed by the world’s top audio brand Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technology, as well as bundled the SonicMaster external subwoofer and a Bang & Olufsen ICEpower certified speaker from the actual experience can clearly feel Asus N56VM the acoustics are far better than the general external speakers better be excellent for those who did not strengthen the speaker notebook, if it is used in relatively small range of space words would be better.
External subwoofer is not a decoration, the bass is to strengthen the architecture, broadband is the sound difference is more clear from the principle, the subwoofer and speakers are exactly the same, but the greater the diameter of the diaphragm, and an increase for the resonance of the speaker. It can make the music more shocking, so you have a sense of immersive, but of pop music in general, or do not use the subwoofer.
The ultimate audio-visual experience to N56VM won many points, innovation USB port charging design gave it a gorgeous color, ASUS N56VM equipped with the USB the Charger + function, it can be faster, more efficient on the road USB mobile device charger, without an adapter adapter. In addition, it supports mobile devices fast charge mode, even cut off the power turned off, dormant, in any place and at any time can be as mobile phones, MP3 players, tablet PCs and other USB devices charge. To pay attention when using this feature after the installation of the USB charger + drive must be in the BIOS to the USB charger + functionality to open, otherwise it is not to shut down the charge.
Appearance, configuration, prices are often a major factor for people to consider a notebook, this small series is also very much agree with, but with the rapid development of the notebook, there are more and more people concerned about the cooling of the notebook with life problems, which gradually key factor in the mutiny a notebook excellent.
The thermal testing the software used for the FurMark Kaoji software, on the map and the following diagram is run FurMark 20 minutes after the results of the full load condition, the palm rest part of the temperature control from the thermal point of view of the keypad quite good, only 33 degrees Celsius, the touchpad part of the temperature reached 36 degrees Celsius, while the keyboard in the central and the left side of the location of thermal windows, heat large, are up more than 40 degrees Celsius, will feel some burning sensation when in actual use. toshiba pa3634u-1bas
Next look at N56VM back cooling results from the previous figure can obviously see, of N56VM of back temperature distribution and keyboard district cooling is basically the same, the same Central reached above 40 degrees Celsius, while the part of the temperature of the thermal windows reached 60 degrees Celsius. However, the above test results are the ultimate test is really a continuous five or six hours are used to play a large eat graphics of the game, then I think which laptop dare not own heat.
Many of my friends are very concerned about the internal core temperature of the thermal testing in the end is how much it can get an answer from the image above, because the thermal testing for the graphics card, graphics card temperature reached 91 degrees Celsius, and the CPU core temperature up to 83 degrees Celsius, this notebook to play games while you can, but for a long time to play is not a best choice, this is not the only N56VM for all laptop have this problem.
ASUS N56VM equipped with a 5200 mA cell lithium battery 56Wh6, after using MobileMark2007 test gives 191 minutes of battery life, equivalent to down about a little more than three hours, the life time of a general level.
ASUS of N56VM: Ivy, Bridge processors and HD4000 graphics card
The ASUS N56VM hardware configuration Processor Intel Core i7-3610QM clocked at 2.30GHz Memory 6GB of DDR3 Graphics the NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M graphics card (2GB) + Intel HD 4000 Display 15.6-inch LED-backlit display 1920 × 1080 resolution Hard drive 750GB Battery 56Wh The weight of the whole weight of 2.730kg Travel Weight 3.459kg Pre-installed system Windows7 Reference Price unknown
Ivy Bridge with 22-nm 3D transistor technology benefits:
(1) increase the number of transistors per unit area:
The number of transistors by the SNB 1.16 billion to 1.4 billion, more the number of transistors, the current passing through the greater. Transistor open high-performance load by as much as possible of the current; transistor open a saving state may be current drops to almost zero, and quickly switch between the two states, the strong signal processor capacity, and reduce unnecessary loss.
(2) significantly improve the efficiency of power supply, reducing energy consumption:
Ivy Bridge 3D transistors and Sandy Bridge 2D transistors compared to provide the same performance, reduce power consumption by 50%; at the same voltage, the performance improvement of 37%.
The newly introduced: the third generation of HKMG technology 22nm technology, DX11, OpenCL 1.1 graphics core and a new generation of video transcoding engine, enhanced AVX instruction set, dual-channel DDR3-1600 memory controller, native support of USB 3.0, PCI-E 3.0 controller. Thermal-power design, part of the quad-core products 35W (X46F equipped with the i7-3612QM that is), to fill the vacancy of the SNB.
Ivy Bridge, core graphics card using 22nm process technology, which makes more transistors can be squeezed in a small chip to enhance nuclear remarkable performance; a new generation of HD Graphics 4000/2500 Nuclear significant increase in the EU programmable unit, resulting in a more strong 3D performance and game performance; Finally, start from the Ivy Bridge, the core graphics card supports native three separate shows.
HD 4000 Core Graphics also support OpenCL 1.1, for general purpose computing has become possible.
Another major improvement in IvyBridge is to increase support for PCI-E 3.0, in fact, this era SandyBridge appeared, but this was the first application on a mobile platform. As a result the vast majority of PCI-E slot by the CPU on the motherboard directly connected, reducing the transition of the memory and chipset, lower latency, response time is shorter, the performance should also enhance.
Unchanged: PPGA988 slot type (IVB can be used in the 6 Series motherboard, the corresponding SNB also can be used in the 7 series on the motherboard), the Turbo Boost 2.0 dynamic acceleration technology. Thermal power design, the standard voltage, dual-core or 35W Quad-Core 45W; low-voltage version for 17W.
Sandy Bridge, Ivy, Bridge, still use the CPU + a PCH dual-chip design, while the CPU is still the integrated I / A core, Core Graphics, media processing and display engine, the memory controller, PCI-E controller, ring to Unicom bus and shared LLC (Last Level Cache).
3DMark 06 is the most classic DX9.0 graphics performance test software in the mobile platform has been in use this software because of its wide range of applications of media and IT practitioners, with a strong horizontal reference value. Do not feel 3Dmark06 seems to be very old, this software supports DX9.0 is still the mainstream features of our daily graphics applications and games. Let’s take a look at the results of new IVB processor DX9.0 features to enhance the proportion of Beyond the previous generations SNB platform i7 2720QM processor quad-core processors in the new IVB i7 3610QM 31.4% to reach 5995 points, but the SNB processor tests the default resolution is 1280 × 768, while the the IVB platform processors this test resolution 1280 × 1024, in the same resolution, the test results should be able to about 40% higher than HD4000 graphics to enhance the degree is evident.
ASUS N56VM comes GT630M discrete graphics memory 2GB, although your 6 series graphics card, but its actual performance, it can not be compared GT650M Kepler graphics, 3Dmark default resolution run into 9511, but compared to the previous generation of GT540M graphics card slightly more astute, but not too much, if you are 1280 × 768 resolution, GT630M the run should be able to reach an extremely
3DMARK 06 score comparison Graphics model reference scores The NVIDIA GeForce 610M 5736 NVIDIA GeForce GT520M 5994 NVIDIA GeForce GT540M 8768 NVIDIA GeForce GT630M 9511 AMD Redeon HD 6470M 4223 AMD Redeon HD 6630M 7113 AMD Redeon HD 6650M 8045 AMD Redeon HD 7470M 4159 intel of HD the Graphics 3000 4346 intel of HD the Graphics 4000 5 995
Can see that the HD4000 graphics score and GT520M GF610M is basically the same. HD6470M, HD7470M this alone significantly was completely throw off. HD3000 core graphics compared to the previous generation, the rise is about 38%, which can be said that the core graphics card has been successful beyond the entry-level alone significantly and is close to the mid-range discrete graphics. Such a strong running sub-entry-level AMD / NVIDIA is the only significant product status is very embarrassing. Can be expected mid-AMD and NIVIDIA, entry-level graphics card threshold of the year there will be a certain upgrade, like this entry-level alone significantly GF610M and the HD 7470M was also the inevitable result of the phase-out of the mainstream market.
Comparison of results from the the 3Dmark evaluation results, the the ASUS N56VM game performance can be a high-end level, StarCraft 2 and Need for Speed 13 can-take-all, the 3D online game of World of Warcraft this is no problem, but for graphics higher requirements for stand-alone game, N56VM incompetent, but in general the ASUS N56VM gamers can fully satisfy.
CineBench is a use for film and television industry, Cinema 4D special effects software engine, you can test the CPU and graphics performance. The main concern in the daily testing of the CPU processing section. The test is divided into two: first test simply use the CPU to render a high-precision 3D scene images in a single-processor single-threaded run only once, if the system has more than one processor core or multi-threading, the first to use only one thread, the second run all the processor cores and threads.
The next test, we adopt the way of contrast, the First CineBench ASUS N56VM with IVB platform Core i7 3610QM compared with the previous generation the SNB platforms Cor i7 2720QM processor from single-threaded and full load terms of contrast score results, IVB of the i7 quad-core platform than the SNB platform i7 quad-core performance increase of about 45% -50%.
PCMark Vantage provides a more easy-to-use one-button testing capabilities and the desktop, mobile, and workstation platforms, unified test scripts, test software based on Windows system. PCMark Vantage can measure all types of PC’s overall performance. From multimedia home entertainment systems to notebooks, professional workstations to high-end gaming platform, whether it is in the hands of the professionals, or belonging to the ordinary user, system performance can understand through the PCMark Vantage test content can be divided into the processor test, graphical test. The hard drive test.
ASUS N56VM PCMark Vantage score of 8904, about 24% higher than the SNB platform 2720QM quad-core processors 7172, from another point of view, whether it is office, audio, video or game level, IVB platform processors than SNB platforms to enhance.
SYSMark Series software is a computer to come through in the true, the application of appropriate software and simulate the real user on the computer’s operating performance data. It can use the scientific method will be a wide range of findings attributed to the application of a model, and combined with the concept of a variety of test software to evaluate the performance of a system. SYSMark the test results show that the new Ivy is very effective to enhance overall performance and enhance the performance of the whole platform, Core i7 3610QM about 15%. asus s6 battery
N56VM we get ASUS notebook with Ivb bridge processor i7 – 3610QM processor compared with the previous generations SNB i7 2720QM processor, has significantly improved the performance, the performance of the HD4000 set beyond the GT520M office or entertainment N56VM can handy, ASUS exclusive vocal master SonicMaster technology jointly developed by the world’s top audio brand Bang & Olufsen ICEpower and the accompanying subwoofer, N56VM can make you feel very good audio and visual effects.
Up from the appearance of the ASUS of N56VM black metal wire drawing the surface is quite atmospheric, but also durable, light-emitting Logo accompanied by a full-size backlit keyboard in the dark do not have a taste. N56VM interface settings is quite complete, four USB3.0 interface allows users to transfer files to exceed 10 times the speed of USB 2.0. ASUS N56VM generally equipped with IVB processor performance is good, just do not know the price of geometry, waiting for ASUS to give us a pleasant surprise. asus ux50 battery
