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. Only the GPU score is included because the test system was only using a dual core CPU so the overall score just gets crippled on all cards with a GPU score under 6,500. Not to mention the overall score is irrelevant when comparing GPU’s with PhysX disabled anyway
In FutureMark’s 3DMark Vantage, mix crossfire again had a significant gain and the GeForce GTX 260 Black beat out the XFX Radeon HD 5770 by a little less than 1000 3dmarks.
