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.
Firstly we are running this benchmark with all cards at their ‘out of the box’ reference clock settings.
At reference speeds the Crossfire solution outperforms the single MSI GTX460 Talon Attack Edition by around 2,400 points, an easy enough victory.
