Futuremark PCMark Vantage Results

The old PCMark Vantage benchmark measures the system’s performance across a wide variety of common tasks such as photo viewing, photo editing, video, music and productivity, making it a useful gauge of a CPU’s performance. The A10-5800K managed to pulled ahead of the Core i3-3220 processor by 11.5%, losing out only to the higher-end Ivy Bridge CPU and Sandy Bridge processors. However, the Trinity desktop APU fared the worst in the Memories Suite test. This might be a reason why the A10 didn't really shine in some of the other tests we've lined up over the next few pages.
