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 1280×1024 resolution was used.
Benchmark Results: The ASRock 890FX Deluxe4 was able to perform 1.4% better than the ASRock 890GX Extreme4. Both of the new ASRock boards fell in the middle of the pack in 3DMark Vantage where there is only a 3.4% performance difference between the top and bottom overall scores.
