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: 3DMark Vantage shows the ATI Radeon powered cards in the lead with the BFG Tech GeForce GTS 250 1GB slightly ahead of the GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB when run at 1920×1200 with Extreme settings.
