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.
Just to preface this test: A workstation machine is not designed for playing games. In fact, 3DMark 11 and 3DMark wouldn't even run on the workstation-class GPU installed in the Z1. We've included the 3DMark Vantage tests just to drive this point home. However, you wouldn't buy a workstation to play games.
With that said, the Z1 produced a respectable CPU score of 25619. However, the graphics score was a paltry 5203, which could be bested by a respectable mobile chip.
