Dell ปล่อย Studio 1747 มาแล้ว !! มันดีกว่า Studio 1737 อย่างไร ?

17 Nov 09 - By l

หลังจาก Microsoft ได้ปล่อย Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium ลงสู่ตลาด ทาง Dell จึงได้ทำการอัปเกรด The Studio 1737 ที่ใช้ Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64 bit มาเป็น The Studio 1747 ที่ใช้ Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit แทน

สำหรับการเปรียบเทียบระหว่าง 2 รุ่น รุ่น 1747 บนเว็บไซต์ของ Dell มีราคาอยู่ที่ 1299 ปอนด์ ซึ่งเกือบจะเป็น 2 เท่าของ 1737 (ราคา 649 ปอนด์)? ซึ่งถ้าผมจะอัปเกรด 1737 ให้มีราคาใกล้เคียงกับ 1747?มากที่สุด ซึ่งตอนแรก ผมทำการอัปเกรด 1747 ด้วย Blu-Ray drive?ราคา 100 ปอนด์?ต่อมาผมได้ทำการอัปเกรด 1737 ผมพบว่าต้องใช้เงินมากกว่านั้นเกือบ 2 เท่า ดังนั้น 1737 จะเทียบเท่ากับ 1747 จริงหรือ ??เราคงต้องมาดูรายละเอียดกันในตาราง

ซึ่งจากการเปรียบเทียบ ตั้งแต่ตัว CPU ที่ 1747 มีประสิทธิภาพดีกว่าด้วย Intel? Core? i-7820QM FSB 1333 MHz?? เทียบกับ CPU Intel? Core? 2 Duo T9600 FSB 1066 MHz?ของ 1737 โดยที่ 1747 มาพร้อมแรม DDR3 และ Harddisk 500/7200?? กับชิปประมวลผลกราฟฟิก ATI Mobility RADEON HD 4650 (1 GB)???ส่วน 1737 มาพร้อม DDR2? และ Harddisk 320/5400 กับชิปประมวลผลกราฟฟิก ATI Mobility RADEON HD 3650 (256 MB) โดยทั้ง 2 ตัวเป็นไดรว์ Blu-Ray และ 1737 ได้ทำการอัปเกรดหน้าจอเป็น 17 นิ้ว (1900×1200) แล้ว แต่เมื่อดูในภาพรวม 1747 ก็ยังคงน่าสนใจกว่ารุ่นเก่าอยู่ดี

With the operating system issue aside, the clearest difference between the two is the choice of CPU. The 1747 has the powerful Intel? Core? i-7820QM, which is in position 8 on our CPU benchmark list, whereas the 1737 has the weaker Intel? Core? 2 Duo T9600, placed at number 18 on our CPU benchmark list.

A significant difference between the machines that further amplifies the superior performance potential of the 1747, is the fact that the 1747’s processor has a Front Side Bus (FSB) of 1333MHz, with 6GB of DDR3 RAM at a matching speed of 1333MHz. The 1737 is left lagging behind, its CPU has an FSB of 1066MHz, and the accompanying 6GB of DDR2 RAM is only 800MHz. Having RAM running slower than the FSB has the potential of leaving the CPU waiting for the RAM, resulting in a slower system overall. The Intel Core i-7 is an exceptionally powerful CPU, which is able to take advantage of the superior DDR3 RAM modules installed in the 1747; you can read more about this impressive CPU here.

One could conclude at this point, having considered the CPU and RAM alone, that the 1747 is a superior machine, yet it has even more to offer. With two 500GB hard drives spinning at 7200 rpm each, the 1747’s storage capabilities provide the user with more storage space and faster access to data, than the 1737’s two 320GB hard drives spinning at 5400 rpm.

As both have Blu-ray drives (although the 1747 has it at a higher cost), what else separates the two? I managed to upgrade the 1737’s display to a 17.0″ 1920 x 1200 resolution capable WUXGA+ CCFL screen, which is a higher resolution than the 1747’s 17.3″ display, which is limited to 1600 x 900.

However, the difference between the two displays is overshadowed by the superior GPU found in the 1747, which is a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650. This GPU is in the fairly high position of 33 on our GPU benchmark list , whereas the 1737’s 256MB ATI Mobility RADEON HD 3650, is only in position 74 on the same list. The 1GB of memory on the 1747’s GPU is excessive however, and it would only need 256MB, or perhaps 512MB in extreme cases. The money spent on the extra

memory would have been better spent on a superior GPU. (Please read our short GPU memory guide to find out more). But despite the unnecessarily large GPU memory, the 1747 is the winning machine in this comparison, and costs almost the same as a fully-upgraded 1737.
