Two Powerful Gaming Notebooks Compared


Note: Be sure to check out the four slideshows for this article. The first three are visual tours of the Killer Notebooks Executioner and WidowPC Sting 517D. The fourth slideshow is all about performance, showing how the two notebooks performed across a variety of tests including 3DMark05, PCMark05, MobileMark 2005 and these games: Black & White 2, F.E.A.R, Doom 3 and Oblivion. We also look at the brightness and contrast of each notebook's display. And, be sure to see the Features Table for both on the next page.


A few months back we paired off the Killer Notebooks Executioner against the Eurocom Divine Duo and ended up with some surprising results.

The Killer Notebooks Executioner is back and this time it has an even more powerful graphics chip, the Nvidia GeForce Go 7950GTX (the last time out we tested a unit with Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GTX). Once again, we've paired it off against a competitor built on an identical chassis and similar specifications, the WidowPC Sting 517D.

As tested, both units had the same chassis, battery, CPU, motherboard and graphics card though they were configured with different memory, cooling and hard drives.
