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.
As we start to apply some pressure to the cards we can see in our P test the GTX 280 and the CF configuration scoring extremely close to each other. As we climb to X, the GTX 280 does sneak out ahead, but the single HD 4850 performs very well and beats out the 9800 GTX OCX. It also scores quite close to the Dual GPU HD 3870 X2.
