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.
Performance settings were used, so a 1280x1024 resolution was used.
Benchmark Results: The ASRock X58 Extreme3 fell just short of the EVGA X58's overall score by 20 3dMarks or .1%. The ASRock X58 did outperform the EVGA board's CPU score by nearly 100 3dMarks or .6%. With such a small difference in scores, a fourth run may have turned the tables.
