Futuremark 3DMark Vantage
3DMark Vantage is the industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, designed for Windows Vista/7 and DirectX10. It includes two graphics tests, two CPU tests, several 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
Testing was run with the ‘Performance’ preset shown above at the default resolution of 1280×1024. The performance preset is widely used by overclockers and enthusiasts as it is the only preset allowed on the HWBot worldwide rankings
. In line with HWBot rules
(for consumer comparisons using the video card hardware specifications listings
), GPU physx is disabled on NVIDIA GPUs. Only the two CPU and GPU tests were run.
Again, mix crossfire outscored the GTX 460 by a margin of ~1000 3DMarks, which seems like nothing compared to the 5,000 3DMark difference between the GTX 460 and the HD 5770!
