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.
For our first 3DMark Vantage test we see that the AMD 780G chipset with IGP enabled manages to get a bit of gap over the NVIDIA setup. When running discrete, there is no difference worth mentioning.
