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 Nvidia GTX590 Quad SLi configuration scores 55,432 points in this test, but it is relegated to second place, with the tri crossfire HD7970 system scoring 57,170 points at the same settings.
