PCMark Vantage
Futuremark’s newest benchmark suite, PCMark Vantage, was released just a week or two ago and we published an initial article on the new software that looked at some CPU performance as well as providing overviews for all the individual testing suites it uses and what kind of applications they emulate.  The new Vantage software takes a much more real-world user-scenario approach to testing that previous PCMark software and as such deserves more time our benchmark analysis.

If you haven’t yet done so, I would HIGHLY recommend you head over to my previous article that has a lot of detail on what these PCMark Vantage tests actually do.  That will give you a better understanding of the results to aid in your potential purchasing decision.

The XFX 780i SLI motherboard does show a bit of lag on the various PCMark Vantage tests on this page including the photo editing and video editing due to its use of DDR2 memory instead of the DDR3 memory that the Asus P5E3 motherboard uses.  Interestingly though, the overall performance is much closer than it appears throughout the tests.
