Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
In the graph above you can see an approximate comparison between the two GPUs that can be found in Acer Aspire 5 and ASUS VivoBook 15 (X510UQ) respectively. For starters, the GeForce MX130 manages to surpass its opponent with around 5% when it comes to our Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark. What’s more, it scores more eloquent results in the Unigine Heaven 3.0 and 4.0 tests – the MX130 outperforms 940MX with 49% and 7% respectively. On top of all that, the former shows 10% better results when it comes to the Unigine Superposition benchmark.
In our opinion, the results from our benchmark tests speak for themselves, therefore we can announce the entry-level NVIDIA GeForce MX130 as the winner in today’s comparison.
