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.
A score of just under 7,000 points places it below the last generation HD5770 which scores 9,500 points. This does however give an early indication that the HD6670 would be suitable for casual gaming at 720p resolution. We will test some games later in the review.
