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 y 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.



 

The EVGA and Zotac GeForce GTX 465 cards put up some decent numbers in 3DMark Vantage, but were easily outpaced by the Radeon HD 5850. Although they did finish out in front of the Radeon HD 5830, the deltas separating the cards was quite small, especially for the reference-clocked Zotac card.
