ASRock 890GX Extreme4 Motherboard Review

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.

We saw a reasonable increase in performance with the 30% overclock which is quite impressive considering how simple it is to achieve this overclock.  The Zotac GeForce GTX 470 GPU made a large contribution to the overall score.
