PCMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed for Windows Vista offering one-click simplicity for casual users and detailed, professional grade testing for industry, press and enthusiasts.
A PCMark score is a measure of your computer’s performance across a variety of common tasks such as viewing and editing photos, video, music and other media, gaming, communications, productivity and security.
From desktops and laptops to workstations and gaming rigs, by comparing your PCMark Vantage score with other similar systems you can find the hardware and software bottlenecks that stop you getting more from your PC.
Benchmark Results: The AMD Phenom II 1055T didn’t so as well as I had hoped in PCMark Vantage. It fell short of the Intel Core I7 930 in all of the suites except for the Communications suite. Though looking at the results from the AMD Phenom II 910e and the AMD Athlon II X4 640 it had a stellar performance!
