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 Acer Aspire S7-391 is an Ultrabook and falls in line about where you would expect it to. It manages an overall score of 3083, edging out the smaller S7-191. It's still a bit behind the other Ultrabooks we've tested. Individual scores are also in line, with the S7-391 managing a GPU score of 2522 and a CPU score of 9262.

 

 

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 S7-391 only manages to put up a score of 3788, which is bested by the Eon 11-S' 650M quite easily. It is, however, in line with the other Ultrabooks we have ran through this newer benchmark.
