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.

3DMark Vantage sees a little boost in performance. While these kinds of gains we would put more down to fluctuation, since we saw a small boost in 3DMark 11 as well it well could be that we're able to get a bit more graphics performance out of SP1.
