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 overclocked MSI GTX670 Power Edition manages to squeeze past the reference clocked GTX680. It is only around 1,000 points behind the new AMD HD7970 GHZ Edition, which is a fantastic result.
