Testing: 3DMark Vantage DX10 Benchmark
3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX 10 performance of your graphics card. A 3DMark score is an overall measure of your system's 3D gaming capabilities, based on comprehensive real-time 3D graphics and processor tests. By comparing your score with those submitted by millions of other gamers you can see how your gaming rig performs, making it easier to choose the most effective upgrades or finding other ways to optimize your system. 3DMark is widely used by the PC industry, press and media as well as individual users and gamers, for comparing performance levels between whole systems or even specific components. Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming benchmark, designed for Windows Vista and DirectX 10. By default, Vantage is in the Performance setting which runs at 1280 x 1024 resolution. Entry (1024 x 768), High (1680 x 1050), and Extreme (1920 x 1200) setting benchmarks were also conducted. Higher scores illustrate superior results.
