Futuremark’s newest benchmark suite, PCMark Vantage, was released earlier this year 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.
As with most of the benchmarks results we’ve seen today with the 785G, our PCMark scores were very comparable and nothing of significance came out of them that would indicate one chipset was better than the other. This is a bit confusing, because it seems these chipsets only seem to variety in the amount of features they provide instead of providing more performance and power to the end user. We can all agree that the integrated graphics is definitely a step up with the 785G, but we aren’t seen many performance increases that prove its heads and shoulders better than older AMD chipsets that have been on the market for a while now.
