Testing and Setup:

Testing of the Titan dock will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs. Both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in CoreTemp after running three threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage after one hour. The temperature values for each of the three cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 22.5 °C throughout testing of the dock, as well as without the dock on a desk. USB and LAN transfer speeds will be tested in SiSoftware Sandra. The test laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4036 — the specifications are listed below.

Testing Setup:

  • Processor: AMD Phenom II X3 P820
  • Memory: 4GB DDR2 generic brand
  • Video Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200
  • Hard Drive: 320gb Seagate SATA 5400RPM
  • OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
  • Ambient Temperature: 22.5 °C

The audio and video quality didn't seem to be any different than directly from the laptop. The speakers I used are a set of Logitech X-540 5.1 surround speakers. I ran frequency sweeps to listen to the frequency response, music, and an action clip from Terminator 2. Obviously the dock isn't capable of 5.1 surround sound, so I did not test for this! The flickering that appears on the built-in screen of the laptop did not appear on the monitor that I hooked up, so that does confuse me! After the headache of this software and the way the dock cools, I am ready to wrap up this review.
