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 system scores 18,282 points which is a good score, although the A10 5800K is holding back the overall performance, scoring 10,583 points. The overclocked Sapphire HD7950 Vapor X scores 24,133 points which is around 6,000 points behind that achieved in our long term Core i7 970 system (around 30,000 points).
The overall scores are closely matched to the Core i3 2105 system.
