AMD Athlon II X2 240e and X3 435 Mainstream CPUs
Next we ran a number of processor and platforms, including both of the new Athlon II models, through Futuremark’s latest system performance metric built especially for Windows Vista, PCMark Vantage. PCMark Vantage runs through 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 a quad-core CPU.
The new Athlon II series processors performed very well in PCMark Vantage testing as they were able to outpace the rest of the reference models in this group.
