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: Beating out its predecessor, the Athlon II X2 240, the Athlon II X2 255 is still limited to 2 cores unlike the other processors I have benchmarked. The AMD Athlon II X2 255 fared rather well in PCMark Vantage. Perhaps not as strong as I would have like to have seen, but overall a solid performance.
