1. Most of the information available on that screen is the most generic info about the system – voltages on different internal devices and temperature of the components. And “Date and time”. For some reason.
2. Benchmarks represent how well the PC operates in comparison to another pre-tested hardware. But I don’t really like the way Sandra represents the comparison, so the screenshots only show the benchmark results.
Aside from the information about the system, we can see some values that represent the amount of integer / float number operations per second.
The same pattern as with CPU. Amount of operations per second is a representation of the performance. The bigger the values – the better. In that case we test amount of shader operations.
Amount of data transferred per second and the time that was required to copy from one memory location to another.
In every of those tests the program displayed much more info, but copying everything wouldn’t be too useful. Most of that information is valuable only for somebody who does know exactly what does he need and mostly useless for a generic user.
3. Hardware data can show a lot of data that is hard to get otherwise.
Some information about the computer in general, the used chipset and so on.
A lot of information about the CPU. Starting from the line 4 the info starts to get more and more specific.
c. GPU (scroll down for screenshot)
Again, quite a lot of information. ID numbers, the full name, estimated performance and so on….
4. Windows version is Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. If we take a look at the Sandra output, we can also find out the exact version: 6.01.7601 (apparently, inside it’s just a Win 7 Professional)
None of the tests has offered me any kind of performance-improving advices. Probably caused by the fact there is not much we can do to improve that. We can do something to help the hard drive or the system itself operate better, but in most cases we have to change the hardware to improve performance. And that’s almost impossible for the laptop.
