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 shows us that the IGP on the 780G is a better option for 3D gaming on the basic level. While scoring better than the 750a, it's by no far playable or enjoyable. When the 9800GX2 takes over we see that the game play and enjoyment is much better. At overclocked speeds we see that the BIOSTAR board blows the ASUS away.
