PCMark Vantage is a favorite benchmarking program for PC enthusiasts and reviewers alike, because it provides a very easy way to measure performance of different computers. It evaluates a system from eight perspectives (We only included the first seven results, since the HDD test is not very relevant to a CPU review), and can be considered a synthetic real life benchmark. Like our BAPCo SYSMark 2007 results, the same trend can be observed in our charts above. The Intel Core i3-2120 slotted nicely between the Core i5-2500K and Core i5-750. It is important to note both i5 CPUs have Turbo Boost, but were disabled in our tests; whereas the Sandy Bridge i3 does not have Turbo Boost in the first place.
