Gaming Benchmarks: 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 06

Futuremark 3DMark Vantage Source: FutureMark

3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX10 performance of your graphics card. We’ve been making 3DMark for over 10 years, with each new edition using the latest 3D technology to determine real-world performance. 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.

Higher results are better.

3DMark08 Vantage scales to four or eight threads, so the Core i7's hyperthreading nets it a gigantic CPU score, which lets it take the overall performance advantage away from the Phenom II X4 955 BE processor.
