    Futuremark has just officially unveiled the latest version of their 3DMark benchmark suite, 3DMark Vantage. Like PCMark Vantage which was released a few months ago, this latest version of 3DMark was designed for testing Windows Vista-based systems. This latest version of the 3DMark, however, is specifically bound to Windows Vista because it uses some advanced visual technologies that are only available with DirectX 10, which you may know isn't available on previous versions of Windows.

    We've put together a quick overview of 3DMark Vantage and its individual test and have it available for viewing right here.

    The price tag will make this thing very pointless. Then again the previous 3DMarks except 2001 were also pointless, though I ran them just because I could.
