In my last post I promised that I would take the ASUS Zenbook UX31 through several well known benchmarking tests and let you know the results. I went with both 3DMark Vantage and PC Mark to see how this beauty got on.

3DMark Vantage is an industry standard performance benchmark for systems with DirectX10 and comes with two graphics tests, two CPU tests and six feature tests. I was really keen to see how the UX31E handled this test and I wasn’t disappointed. 3DMark Vantage delivered 1414 points and 3DMArk 06 was 3497 points.

These results place the Zenbook in an excellent position compared to many other notebooks in the same range. In fact, these results boost my view that the Zenbook is truly an all round performer that has surprisingly good features across the board.

The PCMark 7 result was 3462 points. You have to agree that this is an impressive result for the Zenbook, definitely on a par with the competition, if not slightly better than some. The test is designed to combine different workloads to test the performance of a Windows 7 machine and for anyone planning on using the Zenbook for commuting and work, this means you are assured of a speedy performance.

The entire machine is designed for speed, from the well built specs to the fact that the Zenbook boots up from a standstill in under 16 seconds. It has been road tested and benchmarked and poked at with a stick, and it continues to impress me with its overall performance.
