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 final score of 46,549 points slots the card in between the reference R9 290X in UBER mode and in QUIET mode. This just goes to show how badly crippled the reference cards are by the weak cooling system.
