PCMark VantageFuturemark’s newest benchmark suite, PCMark Vantage, was released just a week or two ago and we published an initial article on the new softwarethat 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 articlethat 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 overall result from PCMark Vantage shows the Skulltrail platform in the lead for everyday PC uses, but not by a large margin. In fact, in both the photo (Memories) and TV/Movies test the single CPU QX9770 configuration is the better performer.
