Synthetic DX10 Performance


3DMark Vantage

The latest version of Futuremark's synthetic 3D gaming benchmark, 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. 3DMark Vantage isn't simply a port of 3DMark06 to DirectX 10 though.  With this 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 Extreme preset option, which uses a resolution of 1920x1200 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.



With a score of X9300 3DMarks, the Matrix 5870 edges out Gigabyte's Super OC GTX 470. Oddly enough, it trailed the 470 using the benchmark's Performance setting. We found the stock clocked 1GB 5870 also recorded higher scores than the Matrix.
