Before the workload starts, the drivers and the windows are updated up to what’s available at the time of writing. The Nvidia GeForce 373.50 WHQL driver is used throughout the test. Power Options are switched to high performance and HDD turn off option is switched off. Additional utilities and bloatware that are usually pre-installed are not removed so show the exact performance you’ll get out of the box. With the exception of the power testing, the rest of the workload are tested with the AC adapter plugged in.
