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.
An overall score of 12,418 points is excellent for a gaming laptop. We can analyse the performance and see that the HD7970m scored over 17,000 points, but the AMD A10-4600M could only manage under 7,000 points which brings the average (overall) score down substantially.
