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.
Overall GPU performance is not bad for the sector, scoring 7,167 points at the performance setting. When switching to the entry level setting, the score increases considerably, to just over 35,000 points.
