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.
Gaming benchmarks now and our first is the Synthetic variety in the form of 3DMark Vantage. Here thanks to the engine that Futurmark uses we see AMD fall quite a bit behind even its X3 brother despite only losing one core.
