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.
Synthetic gaming through 3DMark Vantage shows us that at stock speeds all three contenders are equally matched. However, the overclocking results put J&W behind the two P45 boards. But being unable to clock as high, we were expecting that. So far J&Ws board is looking like a very good contender, nonetheless.
