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.
In our first gaming test we come to 3DMark Vantage and here is where the G45 takes its major hit on the IGP. It's not a gaming platform; more a digital media platform. When using the discrete GPU we see that the G45 and P45 are ideally matched.
