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 4,107 points which indicates decent Direct X 10 gaming performance with modest settings. The CPU scores well over 10,000 points, but the overall score is held back by the HD6650 discrete solution.
