Futuremark PCMark Vantage
For our next round of benchmarks, we ran the complete Futuremark PCMark Vantage test suite. This component of our testing provides a solid assessment of a system's overall performance.
"The PCMark Suite is a collection of various single- and multi-threaded CPU, Graphics, and HDD test sets with the focus on Windows Vista application tests. Tests have been selected to represent a subset of the individual Windows Vista Consumer scenarios. The PCMark Suite includes CPU, Graphics, Hard Disk Drive (HDD), and a subset of Consumer Suite tests."
The Gamer Paladin F970 put up best of class numbers and then some for the Productivity and Gaming tests, but didn’t fare quite as well in the other PCMark Vantage tests. It’s likely the Music test suite and a few other tests could have been affected by driver variances and disk performance.
