This model is offered as a follow-up to the very fast selling and elusive model Asus A43SV <click here>. The CoolTOYZ Exclusive A43SV SKU sold very quickly and we ended up with requests to bring back the model... here it is!
The Exclusive A43SD SKU offered here features the more powerful QUADCORE Core_i7 2670QM Processor, upgraded 750GB(72K) Harddrive, 8GB DDR3 Ram, USB3.0 and the modern nVidia GT610M Graphic Unit with the energy efficient nVidia Optimus Technology. The GT610M is very new in the market and as a result we found have limited benchmark comparison in the web. We are not certain if this is more capable than the GT540M in the previous A43SV model, but what we can ascertain based on our own testing is that the GT610M provides better battery life as verified by 3-Hrs and 34 minutes endurance on DvD Playback. We confidently state that the A43 is the balance of POWERFUL performance with ENDURANCE!
Let us break it down:
1) POWERFUL! Hard to Find Core_i7[Quad Core] in a 14inch Body.
- On the WEI Benchmark the power of the Core_i7 processor is evident. The system rating of 4.5Points is because this GT610M features the nVidia Optimus technology which switches automatically between Intel HD Graphics and the nVidia GT610M. This technology is offered to improve battery life if the system does not need the additional graphic horsepower.
2) GAME CAPABLE with nVidia_GT610M Graphic Processor with Optimus Technology.
- Compared to the previous model A43SV (9,434Points) <click here>, we found the benchmark rating of the new model A43SD lower at only 5,648points. We suspect this is because we are unable to force start the Optimus Technology GT610M to shift to the Nvidia GT610M. We will update the rating as soon as we find the new benchmark test to kick start the GT610M.
To support our theory on the DOUBTFUL result of 3DMark06 to measure the capability of the GT610M, below is a GAME benchmarks where we found the rating of the GT610M comparable to the nVidia GT540M. We really need to study this new GPU more.
3) Finally, and worth mentioning, the A43SD offers an Appealing and Lightweight Aluminum Body with all the features a laptop user will desire!
If you have the budget, desire serious horsepower with Battery Endurance on a 14inch form factor, this is the one for you! See you at CoolTOYZ soon!
