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 1920×1200 was used.
Benchmark Results: We thought the AMD Radeon HD 6990 OC would come out on top, but the ASUS GeForce GTX 590 beat it by roughly 500 3DMarks!!
