200mph on a 1-Lane Highway

The “Renderminator” finally arrived! I’ve had it for a little over a week and have got to be honest. I’m a bit underwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong, it’s got zip, but not as much as I thought it would. Instead of a massive boost of performance, like I was expecting, it seems to have improved my ability to multitask instead.

After doing some research, I found out why (and the answer won’t surprise you). The applications I’m running aren’t written to take advantage of my new horsepower. The flip side, is since a single application doesn’t take full advantage of the available hardware, there is plenty of room to run other programs.

One thing I did find encouraging though are my PCMark Benchmark results. I ran them on my previous Alienware laptop and on my new desktop. My old system scored 2809, the new one, 8865. So there is definitely a performance boost… I just don’t know where.
