Due to the increased amount of work necessary to create a benchmark for Windows Vista OS which has required new software engines, tooling and artwork as well as an increased level of web services and analysis tools, offered to the benchmarking consumers, FutureMark had to change their pricing strategy for PCMark(R) Vantage. A no cost option is still available in the form of a one-time use Trial Version of the Basic edition.
The Trial version will deliver a PCMark Vantage score and allow for submission of a result into the Online Results Browser, but, will require upgrading to the Basic Version for benchmarkers who want to use it for an unlimited number of runs. This can be done by simply entering in the correct registration code for the basic version without requiring an additional download.
