MSI X-Slim X370 3DMark 11 Score


 Performance Comparisons with Futuremark PCMark Vantage
 Details: http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/pcmarkvantage/introduction/

We ran the system through Futuremark’s latest system performance metric PCMark Vantage as well. This benchmark suite creates a host of different usage scenarios to simulate different types of workloads including High Definition video and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communications, and productivity. We like the fact that most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, in order to exploit the additional resources offered by multi-core processors.


Yet again, this is a great example of how the Zacate E-350 APU is much more powerful than the Neo before it, and definitely more powerful than an Atom + ION combo. These numbers are proof that AMD really cranked up the performance on Fusion, and you can definitely feel it in real-world use. The X370 found itself squarely in between the two other Fusion rigs we've reviewed this year, but it's close enough to the X120e that we couldn't really tell a difference between the two in real-world use.
