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.

 

With four GPUs configured in CrossFireX, we expected some serious 3D performance from the Goliath, and it delivered in spades.

The system brought in a total score of P41809. The GPU racked up 41970, and the CPU 41335, all of which are record scores for this test.

 

We run this benchmark in "Performance" mode to get an apples-to-apples data set across various systems, as opposed to the gaming benchmarks, where we push a system's hardware to its maximum abilities.
