New Alienware M11x Core i5, i7 models benched against old version

Alienware M11xThe original Alienware M11x came with basically two processor options, the 1.3GHz Pentium Dual-core SU7300 or 1.4GHz Intel Celeron SU4100. However, more recently, Dell revamped the M11x to feature the latest Core i5 and Core i7 processors, also bringing with it Nvidia’s power-saving Optimus technology.

NotebookReview managed to get hold of two Alienware M11x models at E3, one with the 1.066GHz Core i5-520UM processor and another with the 1.2GHz Core i7-640UM. They ran a wPrime test and compared the results to the original M11x they reviewed that sported the 1.4GHz SU4100. As you’d expect the Core i7 and Core i5 was faster than the SU4100, however overclocking the SU4100 gave it second place at 51.15 seconds compared to 39.47seconds (lower is better) for the Core i7-640UM. However, both the Core i5 and i7 models are also overclockable. Check out the results after the jump.

Alienware M11x CPU wPrime 32M test:

Intel Core i7-640UM 39.47s
Intel Pentium Dual-core SU4100 (overclocked) 52.15s
Intel Core i5-520UM 55.37s
Intel Pentium Dual-core SU4100 66.24s

    Dell’s Alienware M11x is its latest portable gaming rig, with a twist. It’s actually a convincingly portable device without shirking gaming prowess in a machine this size. There is a slight downside and that is cost. We were sent almost the highest possible spec unit, and therefore one of the highest priced too at £1,419, and there are cuts that can be made without compromising decent game play at almost half the price. The Alienware M11x could very well be the next evolution of a netbook, with a gaming requirement thrown in.
