HP Envy Ultrabook 6t-1000 Review

PCMark Vantage and PCMark 7

Futuremark's PCMark 7 is the latest version of the PCMark suite, recently released last spring. It has updated application performance measurements targeted for a Windows 7 environment. It combines 25 individual workloads covering storage, computation, image and video manipulation, Web browsing, and gaming.

General Application and Multimedia Performance

Another surprise is that our HP Ultrabook took pole position in Futuremark's PCMark 7 benchmark. The combination of Intel HD Graphics 4000 and the mSATA SSD are clearing pulling their weight.

Simulated General Desktop Performance
Next up, we ran our test systems through Futuremark’s previous generation total-system performance evaluation tool, 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.  Since we have a large database of scores for this test, we felt it would be good to give you additional reference points to compare to.

HP's Ultrabook didn't score quite as high in the older PCMark Vantage build, which is another barometer of overall system performance. This time, the 6t-1000 scored in the middle of the pack.
