Benchmark Results: 3DMark Vantage
3DMark Vantage performance scales almost perfectly with the number of graphics processors, giving AMD's architecture a slight advantage when “Disable PPU” is selected. The reason we disabled PhysX for this benchmark is that it equates an added feature with added speed, and then adds this supposed performance gain to the CPU score.
GPU scores don’t change when 3DMark’s “Disable PPU” setting is chosen, and the performance scaling is nearly identical to the overall score.
With 3DMark's PPU setting disabled, the CPU scores are as consistent as we’d expect them to be.
