3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.

 

3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.

 

Single HD 4870 X2 vs. Two HD 4870s on P45

 

Here we can see under the extreme load setting, the single HD 4870 X2 offers a good performance increase over the Crossfire configuration. This is exactly what I was talking about when summing up the HD 4870 X2 the other day.
