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.
The H55M-ED55’s PCMark Vantage scores were equally impressive to its 3DMark Vantage results. MSI’s micro ATX board took the top score in our benchmark and was impressive in specific portions of the benchmark that focused on TV and movies, productivity, and gaming. These results just reinforce this board’s credibility as a true gaming and multimedia powerhouse.
