3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance
benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and
DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests,
several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware. 3DMark
Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed
specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API
The Entry settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1024×768 was used.
Benchmark Results: The Intel HD Graphics in
the ASUS K42F and the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD used in the HP DV4-1555dx notebook were no match for the AMD Brazos platform graphics solution as you can see in the GPU test.
Here are the details of the GPU and CPU tests in case anyone was curious and wanted to take a closer look.
3DMark 06 is still a popular standard in advanced 3D game performance
benchmarking and the latest version in the popular 3DMark series
available to run on Windows XP. 3DMark06 tests include HDR/SM3.0
graphics tests, advanced SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven
single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of
comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure gaming performance.
We fired up 3DMark06 and ran the standard benchmark on the Zacate E-350 APU with Radeon hD 6310 graphics.
We and found the graphics performance on the Brazos platform to be a respectable 2135 3DMarks as you can see from the shot above.
Here are the detailed test results in case you are curious what they look like or if you want to compare them to the performance numbers you get with your current laptop solution.
