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 overclock translates to just over 1,200 points more than the reference solution and gives the Gigabyte card enough power to drive past the HD7770 1GHZ in Crossfire.
