Let’s see how the GS43VR performs in a range of benchmarks, starting with PCMark
In the accelerated version of PCMark, the extra graphics power available in the GS43VR courtesy of the GTX 1060 delivers a decent performance boost in the Home and Creative workloads. The Work benchmark, which rely as much on GPU rendering, doesn’t see a noticeable performance gain over the GS40.
Performance in other benchmarks is pretty similar to what we’ve seen before from other Core i7-6700HQ laptops. The GS43VR does boast a particularly good score in the multi-threaded Cinebench workload, but outside of this test, the performance I recorded falls is no better or worse than competing laptops with this CPU.
