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.
These results reflect what we saw in 3DMark 11. The FX-8120 can just beat the stock i5-2500K when it’s overclocked but falls far behind when the i5-2500K is overclocked to the same speed.
