  • My Passmark Score

    Sorry if this is the incorrect place to post this.

    I have recently purchased from work, an Asus G74SX-FHD-TZ130V laptop very cheaply with the following specs:

    Intel Core-i7 2630QM 2.00GHz
    16Gb DDR3 Ram (upgraded from the standard 8Gb)
    2x 750Gb 7200RPM drives, partitioned to 4x 350ish Gb drives
    3Gb DDR5 nVidia GeForce GTX 560M graphics card

    I used the latest PassMark benchmarking and received 2277 as a score (was 2249 before the RAM upgrade).
    I looked up other peoples baselines (?) and with the same computer, same CPU, and same Graphics, some people had over 3000...
    How can this be? Is there something I am missing? Ive never had a gaming computer and while it plays Crysis 1 & 2, ARMA 2, etc very nicely, I can't help but wonder how to make it better.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    First step is to look at the individual benchmark scores from your machine and the other baselines and see where the major difference is.

    For example, could be that you have different device drivers or are running in power saving mode.
