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 performance settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1280×1024 was used.
Test Results: The test results in 3DMark Vantage shows great performance scaling with memory speed when the test results are averaged over five runs per speed setting. if you run the benchmark just one time the numbers will be all over the place, but overall the performance gets better with faster memory speeds.
