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.
In Crossfire, the AFOX HD7850 graphics cards perform at the same level as the last generation GTX680 in this Direct X 10 benchmark, scoring around 33,000 points.
