3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is specifically bound to Windows Vista-based systems because it uses some advanced visual technologies that are only available with DirectX 10, which isn't available on previous versions of Windows. With the latest version of the benchmark, Futuremark has incorporated two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, in addition to support for the latest PC hardware.  We tested the graphics cards here with 3DMark Vantage's Performance preset option, which uses a resolution of 1280x1024.

Yes, we realize the V8800 is not designed for gaming, but were still curious about its performance in this aspect. As expected, we found the card's strength is not limited to workstation applications, as it scored over four thousand 3D Marks higher than the V8750. That's a 50% increase in performance for this particular benchmark over the previous generation model.
