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 good 3DMark score of 12571 is achieved by the MSI GT70 0NC. Yet again, the performance of nVidia’s GTX 670M is soundly surpassed by that of AMD’s HD7970M.
