3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard for 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.
For today's testing, we used both the Performance setting (P), with a resolution of 1280x1024 and the High setting (H) with a resolution of 1680x1050.
Results: in 3D Mark Vantage, we see that the dual 4850 GPU's were able to put down some serious numbers. When overclocked, the card was able to push those numbers up by another 10% or so in both categories.
