3DMark Vantage tests both processor and graphics performance and is a good indication of how systems compare. The results are generally more repeatable and consistent than other forms of benchmarking. Vantage uses DirectX 10 and can handle multi-core CPUs.

The ASUS S500C is an Ultrabook and falls in line about where you would expect it to. It manages an overall score of 3284, which is in line with the other Ultrabooks that have come through our lab. Individual scores are also in line, with the S500C managing a GPU score of 2736 and a CPU score of 8223.

 

 

3DMark - Cloud Gate Test

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0

Developer Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com

Product Homepage: http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/3dmark

 

 

Cloud Gate is a new test that is designed for Windows notebooks and typical home PCs. Cloud Gate includes two graphics tests and a physics test. Cloud Gate uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10 making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware. Cloud Gate will only be available in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.

You can see in the chart that Ultrabooks just aren't designed for gaming. The HD 4000 only manages to put up a score of 3740, which is bested by the Eon 11-S' 650M.
