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.
Results: Again we see that the additional memory bandwidth provided by our HyperX 2133MHz memory turns into a performance advantage. We don’t see a lot of scaling as the CPU speed is the bottleneck at this point with the GTX 295.
