Testing – 3DMark & PCMark Vantage
In this part of the review I will be covering the most used benchmarks used for testing, 3DMark and PCMark. The first set of benchmarks I will post here will be PCMark Vantage. PCMark Vantage tests every aspect of computer use from movies to music and gaming and even does some webpage loading to test out the whole system. I am running the Professional Edition so I will be running under the Professional settings at stock and overclocked settings.
Now I am going to use 3Dmark. This is a very intensive benchmark for testing out gaming aspect of your system. This test puts a high stress on the CPU and GPU together and bases the score off just those two. In this test you can see test you can see a 2,000 Point difference in the scores. Overclocking the CPU yet again shines here.
