These scores come as no surprise considering the Samsung NP540U3C-A01 is equipped with a simple Intel HD4000 IGP - integrated graphics are just fine for regular desktop work but tend to get bogged down in 3D gaming, which is not the ideal application for any notebook classed as an "Ultrabook".

Next, 3DMark Vantage results.

3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX10 performance of your graphics card. We’ve been making 3DMark for over 10 years, with each new edition using the latest 3D technology to determine real-world performance.

The Samsung NP540U3C-A01 achieves similar results in 3DMark Vantage compared to the previous 9-series ultrabook -- although both are equipped with an Intel HD 4000 IGP, the 9-series CPU is more powerful.

3DMark 11 failed to complete its test run on the 900X4C-A02' Intel HD 4000 IGP but ran without issue in Windows 8 on the NP540U3C-A01. The results are not very impressive, which is to be expected from the Intel HD 4000 IGP. Next we have Sandra CPU, Memory and Storage benchmarks.
