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 HD6870’s in Crossfire score almost 31,000 points, a very impressive result. The overclocked Core i5 2500k processor scores 23,471 points which brings down the overall score a little to 28,654 points.
