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.
Again, the highest score we have achieved with 3DMark Vantage, scoring 44,120 points with three Sapphire HD6970’s in CrossfireX. This is up from 43,952 we achieved on an MSI X58 a short while ago.
