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. We are using the Entry preset.
The DM1Z is not a gaming tour de force, but with modest settings at lower resolutions, non demanding games could be played. We will take a look at Valve's Source engine later.
