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 system scores 18,774 points. the A10 5800K processor holds back the overall performance somewhat, scoring 10,610 points. The HD7970 GHZ scores 25,251 points which is around 9,000 points less than in our long term Core i7 970 system (34,210 points).
The overall scores from the AMD A10 5800k system are comparable against a similarly priced system using a Core i3 2105 processor.
