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.

Test the DirectX 10 gaming performance of your PC.
Stunning real-time graphics push your DirectX 10 hardware to its limit.
Includes two GPU graphics tests, two CPU tests and six feature tests.
Four presets cover everything from lightweight laptops to desktop PCs.

Feature tests:

Texture fill rate test
This test draws frames by filling the screen with values read from a tiny texture using multiple texture coordinates. The texture coordinates are rotated and scaled between each frame.

Color fill rate test

his test draws frames by filling the screen multiple times. The color and alpha of each corner of the screen is animated with the interpolated color written directly to the target using alpha blending.

Parralax occlusion mapping
This test features a 4k by 4k height map on a single quad rendered with four point lights and three directional lights in a single pass, using parralax occulsion mapping self-shadowing for each light.

Cloth simulation test
This test simulates and renders twelve flags affected by wind and gravity. Each flag is modeled as a grid of vertices. The computation is done on the GPU using vertex and geometry shaders.

Particle simulation test
This test renders simulated particles on the GPU. There are hundreds of thousands of particles present in the scene, revealing an invisible shape as they collide with its surface.


3DMark Vantage Advanced and Professional Editions introduce Presets, predefined combinations of visual quality settings which scale the test load and let you test everything from entry-level to high-end hardware. The output is scaled automatically if your display does not support the required resolution for each preset.

The Entry preset runs at 1024x768 and is designed for integrated and entry level hardware with a minimum of 128MB of graphics memory.

The Performance preset, designed for mid-range hardware is included in all editions. It runs at 1280x1024.

The High preset requires 512MB of graphics memory and is intended for high-end systems. It runs at 1680x1050 resolution.

The Extreme preset for multi-GPU systems runs at 1920x1200 and is only available in the Advanced and Professional Editions.

In the Advanced and Professional Editions you can choose custom settings to explore the performance of your PC in greater detail.
