3DMark Vantage is one of the industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, It includes two graphics tests, two CPU tests, and several feature tests. 3DMark Vantage is based on a rendering engine developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10.
We used the default Extreme setting in 3D Mark Vantage to run this test.
The ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 550 Ti posted a very nice score and when we looked it up on the futuremark site there were no scores posted on an i5-2500K CPU, but this would be the second highest score behind an i7-2600k CPU rig.
This card fits right in below the 560 family just as it should.
We do want to point out that the difference between these numbers highlight a higher gap than you might notice if you are playing on smaller monitors. As most of the tests have shown, this card is pretty capable below 24″ displays.
