Acer Packs the Athlon64, More Fire Power Under Its Ferrari 3200 Notebook's Hood

3D-Gaming: Game Demos From 3D-Mark 2001

The Taiwanese Ferrari gets extremely thirsty under full power. After a little more than an hour the tank (i.e. battery) is empty. Although the battery life can be greatly extended using the power play default settings, 3D FPS games such as Splintercell become unplayable due to the extremely low frame rates.
