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 Extreme settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1920x1200 was used.
Benchmark Results: I threw in some other video cards that I tested on this system recently just to give a better picture of performance on this, one of the most popular benchmarks in the world. The GeForce GTX 275 makes short work of the Radeon HD 4800 series in this benchmark as you can see from the graph above. The Radeon HD 4890 does significantly better than the Radeon HD 4870 1GB and 512MB versions, though. All of the cards in the $149-$249 price range are pretty close together when it comes to performance in this benchmark.
