PCMark Vantage

Futuremark’s newest benchmark suite, PCMark Vantage, was released in 2010 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.

Ouch, what a difference a benchmark makes as the P67 Professional fell behind its competition in PCMark Vantage. While the Fatal1ty-branded board gave us a lot to look forward to in the gaming realm, it seems they make a few sacrifices to how this board handles basic PC operations and tasks. Users looking for a do-it-all motherboard might want to look elsewhere for a more balanced board.
