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.
We used the ‘Performance’ settings for our 3D Mark Vantage testing today.
The Intel Core i7 2630QM is a powerful mobile chip, scoring almost 36,000 points in 3DMark Vantage. The score indicates good overall performance, achieving almost 8,500 points.
