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 Sapphire HD7870 Tahiti LE scores almost 30,000 points which is an excellent result, and around 3,000 points behind the overclocked HIS HD7950 IceQ.
