With the exception of AMD FX-8150, the Intel CPUs made short work of the diverse range of tests of PCMark Vantage as they were seen running neck-to-neck in their performance scores. Only upon closer scrutiny can we ascertain the winning form of Intel I7-3770K. Even running the memory modules at 1333MHz (below its official 1600MHz supported memory clock speed) failed to slow the Ivy Bridge CPU in the face of competition from the Sandy Bridge processors. The neck-to-neck race amongst the Intel CPUs is due to the fact that PCMark Vantage has more productivity tasks than multimedia content creation workloads, as such all their scores seemed to be leveling off above the 12,000 mark (Overall Score). In any case, the newcomer is the fastest of the lot.
