Synthetic Benchmarks

PC Mark 8

Before I get into the benchmarks, it’s important to clarify that the Aero 14 is currently being compared to desktop systems and not other laptops because I’m waiting for more portable samples to arrive. While I still have the data on some older laptops, it’s using a different process and relies on outdated games. Therefore, I updated the benchmarking suite to provide an accurate indication of performance. This means the laptop’s standing will be understood better once I’ve analysed a number of competing units sporting a similar form factor.

During PC Mark 8, the Aero 14 achieved a very respectable score and has enough horsepower to easily cope with basic tasks such as light gaming, photo editing and web browsing. Clearly, it’s not a match for high-end Pascal systems, but this is to be expected and targets different types of customers.



The laptop’s performance throughout 3DMark is commendable although it struggles with the intense action once the resolution goes beyond 2560×1440. Overall, the scores are impressive for an ultrabook but you are going to enjoy a huge performance boost when opting for the latest Pascal mobile chips. That’s not to say the GTX 970M isn’t going to uphold good numbers, though.
