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.
The Performance settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1280x1024 was used.
Benchmark Results: The Intel Core i7-3960X beat all the other processors in 3DMark Vantage, but the Core i7-3820 wasn't that far behind. Less than a hundred 3DMark points separate the Core i7-3820 and the 2700K.
Benchmark Results: The differences seen on the GPU test were a little closer as it looks like we were becoming GPU limited by the Radeon HD 6950 at the top of the chart.
Benchmark Results: The CPU benchmark results in 3DMark Vantage clearly show the Intel Core i7-3980X in the lead, but look how close the Core i7-2700K and 3820 are once again.
