About PCMark Vantage

A PCMark score is a measure of your computer’s performance across a variety of common tasks such as viewing and editing photos, video, music and other media, gaming, communications, productivity and security. From desktops and laptops to workstations and gaming rigs, by comparing your PCMark Vantage score with other similar systems you can find the hardware and software bottlenecks that stop you getting more from your PC.

Thanks to the improved Intel Atom D525 and NVIDIA Proton, we were able to run PCMark Vantage trouble-free. Just as I expected, the scores were better than that of the NC94 and the NC96, because the whole test actually runs without crashing consistently. Surprisingly, in the Memories and Gaming tests, the NC98 actually ran better than the 4400+ equipped NC84. This is due to a better IGP as well as a Western Digital Raptor hard drive, rather than the 160GB Hitachi 5400RPM drive that Jonathan used in our previous Jetway motherboard reviews. So take the affected results here lightly, as the hard drive difference was a factor to at least a few of these tests.
