Futuremark PCMark Vantage
Our next round of benchmarks involves the complete Futuremark PCMark Vantage test suite. The PCMark Suite is a collection of single- and multi-threaded CPU, Graphics, and HDD test sets. This suite focuses on Windows Vista application tests and is designed to represent a subset of Windows Vista consumer usage scenarios.
As we stated early on, Asus' W90Vp is a mixed bag, evidenced yet again by its PCMark Vantage scores (which were captured while in "Overclocked" mode). While it ran circles around more dated machines, the recently recently Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q275 managed to beat it in a few areas. Not every area, mind you, but some. We suspect the omission of an SSD drive hurt it in quite a few areas on this test; twin 7200RPM drives are nice if you need the space, but they certainly aren't the fastest in the world.
