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.

NVIDIA nForce 730i / GeForce 9300 Chipset Review

Gaming benchmarks start with 3DMark Vantage and here is where the GeForce 9300 managed to hold it over the G45. Intel's GMA X4500 graphics core not only runs at a much slower clock speed, it hasn't got as many shader cores either, giving the 3D performance a huge hit. The 7150 also manages to fall to the end of the spectrum.

With the IGPs disabled and the discrete GPUs running, we see the 9300 and G45 just abut dead even with the 7150 still lagging far behind due to a lack of memory bandwidth on tap.
