    By Vince Freeman :  October 19, 2007

    PCMark Vantage is the latest benchmark in a long line of Futuremark products, this time targeting the Windows Vista user community. With this newest test, Futuremark has shifted its focus away from pure hardware evaluation, and moves to a more general-purpose model, intended to satisfy both casual and professional users.

    Futuremark does this by generating PCMark Vantage performance results based on a variety of Vista scenarios, including areas like media, entertainment, productivity and communication. PCMark Vantage supports both 32 and 64-bit computers, and is available in several packages. The Basic Edition ($6.95) includes the PCMark Test Suite and the Online ResultBrowser (ORB), while the Advanced Edition ($19.95) adds all Test Suites to the mix, and Vantage Professional ($495) is for commercial use. There is a free trial version available that will provide a PCMark Vantage score and ORB functionality, but it is one-time use only.
