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. Testing was done with the performance presets.
Already a pattern is forming. Percentage-wise, the gaps between the 450, 460 and 550 options remain very similar. It will be interesting to see if these gaps change with in-game testing.
