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.
Across the board we can see a gradual increase in overall performance as we move from out of the box to AUSUM, to our overclocked speeds. Of course, the NVIDIA offerings do perform stronger in this instance due to the PhysX support.
