3DMark Vantage is a DirectX 10 video card benchmark test for Windows Vista that measures PC gaming performance. 3DMark Vantage uses a native DirectX 10 engine built to use all the features of the new API. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark Vantage consistently and reliably tests your PC's DirectX 10 performance under game-like loads. 3DMark Vantage Basic Edition includes everything you need to get a 3DMark score with the Performance preset. Upgrade to the Advanced Edition to unlock more presets, tests and settings.
Jane Nash - Graphics test 1
Watch super agent and go-to gal Jane Nash as she escapes from a secret island lair in this action packed scene. The test includes complex character animation, physical GPU simulations, multiple dynamic lights, and complex surface lighting models. It uses several hierarchical rendering steps to create water reflection and refraction, and includes physics simulation collision map rendering.
New Calico - Graphics test 2
Space explodes with action as the Damocles leads a devatsting assault on the planet New Calico. This test consists almost entirely of moving objects - spaceships, fighters, missiles and asteroids. In addition to variance shadow mapped shadows, the test includes a number of local and global ray-tracing effects such as parallax occlusion mapping, true impostors and volumetric fog.
AI test - CPU test 1
The daredevil pilots of the Merry Go Round Air Show put on a dazzling display in this demanding CPU benchmark. This test features a high-intensity workload of co-operative path-finding artificial intelligence calculations as the planes attempt to navigate a series of gates while avoiding collisions. The workload is parallelized, and will take advantage of multi-core CPUs if available.
Physics test - CPU test 2
The Merry Go Round Air Show continues in this heavy physics stress test for your CPU. This time, the smoke-trailing planes collide with various cloth and soft-body obstacles, each other, and the ground. The smoke spreads and reacts to the planes passing through it. As this test is designed to stress the CPU physics acceleration on the GPU is disabled by default.
Note: 3DMark Vantage is designed for Windows Vista and limited functionality. We recommend using the Latest version of 3DMark on PCs with modern operating systems.
