Unleash Your Laptop’s Peak Performance Potential

Processors generate heat when running intensive applications, which can cause throttling and limit performance. The triple patented SVALT Cooling Dock uses a massive aluminum heat sink for passive cooling and a powerful desktop sized fan that drives cooling air directly onto laptop processors to help overcome heat induced throttling and maintain peak performance while under heavy and sustained workloads. In CPU testing the SVALT D2 High-Performance Cooling Dock helped to eliminate heat induced throttling and maintain peak performance with up to 154% higher Turbo Boost speed and up to 21% higher Geekbench Score, while in GPU testing the SVALT D2 increased graphic performance with up to 97% higher graphics power and up to 30% faster frames per second.

CPU Test Summary
The CONTROL test laptop temperatures shot up to over 103 Celsius and were up to 50% hotter than the SVALT test temperatures. After 20-minutes the CONTROL started throttling processor power, which lowered temperatures but also lowered Turbo Boost speeds and Geekbench performance. The CONTROL’s throttling increased in severity until reaching peak throttling at 40-minutes and then continued to throttle at that level through the rest of the 90-minute test, while the SVALT D2 provided enough supplemental cooling power to maintain cool temperatures, avoid heat induced processor throttling, and maintain maximum performance throughout the 90-minute test.

GPU Test Summary
The CONTROL test laptop was only able to maintain maximum graphics and FPS performance for a few minutes, while the SVALT D2 provided enough supplemental cooling power to sustain FPS performance during the 60-minute test, or maintain lower temperatures even with overclocking.

Testing Details

SVALT performs testing under controlled conditions to explore and demonstrate peak performance capabilities for photo/video editing, modeling, gaming, data analysis and other high-demand applications. Performance results depend on a number of variables, such as the laptop’s built-in performance capability and cooling system capacity, along with the applied workload intensity, testing duration, and ambient temperature. In general, the more powerful the laptop’s built-in processor, the weaker the laptop’s built-in cooling system, the more demanding the applied application workload intensity, the longer the testing duration, and the higher the ambient temperature, then the greater the potential for throttling, and thus the greater the potential for the SVALT Cooling Dock to reduce throttling and improve performance. For instance, SVALT Cooling Dock tests conducted in 80 F ambient temperatures demonstrate even more significant improvements over the CONTROL. Throughout SVALT Cooling Dock testing the D2 model tests at roughly up to 2x better than the D1 model.

    • Test Process: Two tests were conducted under controlled conditions, first without the SVALT D2 for the CONTROL test and then with the SVALT D2 set to Turbo+ 3200 RPM for the SVALT test.
    • Test Workload: 90-minutes of Geekbench 3 Pro Stress Test in 64-bit setting, and then 5-minutes of cool down.
    • Test Laptop: MacBook Air with 11-inch display, 2.0GHz i7 Dual-Core CPU processor, and Mid-2012 release.
    • Test Ambient Temperature: 75 F +/- 1 F.
    • Test Data: CPU temperature, power and performance data was automatically logged during test at .500-millisecond increments. This raw data was converted into 1-minute and 5-minute averages. The test charts present the 5-minute test averages. In addition to the data logging, screenshots were taken at the 5-minute marks to record Geekbench Stress Test scores.
    • Temperature Results: 50% CPU temperature increase for CONTROL during a 1-minute average between 3 and 4-minutes into the test with temperature above baseline 43 Celsius. The CONTROL test measured a 103C 1-minute average - 43C baseline = 60C increase. The SVALT test measured an 83C 1-minute average - 43C baseline = 40C increase. (60-40)/40 = 50% hotter for the CONTROL test.
    • Turbo Boost Results: 154% GPU speed increase for SVALT D2 during a 1-minute average between 88 and 89-minutes into the test with Turbo Boost above baseline 2000 MHz (2.0 GHz). The SVALT test measured a 3000 MHz 1-minute average - 2000 MHz baseline = 1000 MHz increase. The CONTROL test measured a 2394 MHz 1-minute average - 2000 MHz baseline = 394 MHz increase. (1000-394)/394 = 154% faster for the SVALT test.
    • Geekbench Score: 21% Geekbench score increase for SVALT D2 at 45 and 65-minutes into the test with Geekbench Pro 3 Multi-Core in 64-bit mode. The SVALT test scored 5489 at 45-minute and 5471 at 65-minute. The CONTROL test scored 4552 at 45-minute and 4538 at 65-minute. (5489-4552)/4552 = 21% higher Geekbench score for the SVALT test at 45-minute. (5471-4538)/4538 = 21% higher Geekbench score for the SVALT test at 65-minute.

    • Test Process: Two tests were conducted under controlled conditions, first without the SVALT D2 for the CONTROL test and then with the SVALT D2 set to Turbo+ 3200 RPM for the SVALT test.
    • Test Workload: 60-minutes of FurMark GPU stress test through Geeks3D GpuTest, followed by FurMark GPU benchmark test, and then 5-minutes of cool down.
    • Test Laptop: MacBook Pro with 15-inch Retina display, 2.6GHz i7 Quad-Core CPU processor, and Late-2013 release.
    • Test Ambient Temperature: 77 F +/- 1 F.
    • Test Data: GPU temperature, power and performance data was automatically logged during test at 2-second increments and 1-minute averages. This raw data was converted into 1-minute and 5-minute averages. The test charts present the 5-minute test averages.
    • Graphic Results: 97% GPU power increase for SVALT D2 during a 1-minute average between 53 and 54-minutes into the test with GPU supply power above baseline 3.37 Watts. The SVALT test measured a 38.66 Watt 1-minute average - 3.37 Watt baseline = 35.290 Watt increase. The CONTROL test measured 21.30 Watt 1-minute average - 3.37 Watt baseline = 17.930 Watt increase. (35.290-17.930)/17.930 = 97% more power for the SVALT test.
    • FPS Results: 30% FPS increase for SVALT D2 with FurMark GPU benchmark test. The SVALT had a 35 FPS test average and a 2132 score. The CONTROL had a 27 FPS average and 1654 score. (35-27)/27 = 30% higher FPS for the SVALT. (2132-1654)/1654 = 29% higher FurMark score for the SVALT.
