3DMark Vantage


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

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 R7 produced an overall 3DMark Vantage score of 3214. This puts it just slightly above the rest of the Ultrabooks we've tested, save for the ASUS S500C.


Looking at the individual scores, the R7 managed to produce a GPU score of 2674, and a CPU score of 8145. Neither of these scores are particularly impressive when compared to a gaming machine, but they are roughly equivalent to most Ultrabooks.

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0

Product Homepage:



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.




The R7 managed a score of 3341. Looking at the individual scores, the R7 produced a CPU score of 2019, and a GPU score of 4111. In this test, the R7 falls behind the majority of the other Ultrabooks we have in our chart.
