PCMark Vantage Performance
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."
In some cases, the S20 performs quite well against the other test systems. In other cases, it doesn't quite keep up, though clearly these are more standard, business-class and multimedia orientated workloads put forth in our PCMark Vantage testing. We'll get into more workstation/professional class workloads in the pages ahead.
