Futuremark released 3DMark Vantage, on April 28, 2008. It is a benchmark based upon DirectX 10, and therefore will only run under Windows Vista (Service Pack 1 is stated as a requirement) and Windows 7. This is the first edition where the feature-restricted, free of charge version could not be used any number of times. 1280×1024 resolution was used with performance settings.
The Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H system scores well, thanks to the 3770k in such a high state of overclock, this boosts the score to 26,803 points. A great result for a HD7870 powered system.
