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 S7-392 is the number one Ultrabook we have tested in terms of gaming performance. It produced a 3DMark Vantage score of 4106, with the CPU providing a score of 8883, and the GPU providing a score of 3482, easily besting the other Ultrabooks. While you won't be playing Battlefield 4 on Ultra, many games on low graphics settings should be playable.

 

 

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.

Again, the S7-392 easily tops all of the other Ultrabooks in our chart. The S7-392 produced a combined score of 4265, putting it over 500 points ahead of the next closest Ultrabook, which happens to be its older brother: the S7-391.
