ASUS UL80Vt-A1 Thin and Light Notebook ReviewMon, Dec 14, 2009 - 12:00 AM
PCMark05, Vantage and 64-Bit
PCMark05 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark05 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results.
Results: The ASUS UL80VT blew the other netbooks and notebook out of the water in this overall performance benchmark with its Celeron processor and Mobile Intel GS45 Chipset.
PCMark Vantage provides you with the correct tools for performance measurement of every type of Personal Computer with Microsoft’s new Microsoft Windows Vista operating system from Office Productivity computers and Gaming Machines to PCs configured for the creative user. With an easy to use interface and clear scoring, you will be able to select exactly the type of tests you want to use and then choose the right upgrade components or complete PC that will fit your needs. This easy-to-use product gives you the same tools and knowledge that virtually every professional tester in the industry uses.
Results: Although the UL80VT is running Windows 7, we decided to go ahead and use Vantage to see how it fares against the MSI X340 notebook. Again, the UL80VT fares very well in this benchmark. We also ran the 64-bit version of PCMark Vantage and got a score of 3083 PCMarks.
