PCMark Vantage Performance

We also ran the Acer Aspire Revo through Futuremark’s latest system performance metric built specifically for Windows Vista, PCMark Vantage. PCMark Vantage sets up a host of different usage scenarios to simulate different types of workloads including High Definition TV and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communications, and productivity.  Most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, so the tests can exploit the additional resources offered by the Atom processor's HT feature.  Here we're comparing the Revo to both an Intel Atom reference platform on an Intel D945GCLF motherboard, the NVIDIA Ion reference platform, and the VIA Nano reference platform as well.

Simulated Application Performance

Despite being equipped with somewhat slower memory than NVIDIA's Ion reference platform, the Acer Aspire Revo hung right alongside the reference system in our PCMak Vantage testing. Notice, however, the large disparity between the Intel Atom system and the Revo in the Gaming test, where the Revo's Ion graphics processor allows it to surge ahead of Intel's offering.
