Futuremark has released the newest version of 3DMark. 3DMark: Vantage.

Futuremark (www.futuremark.com) brings users one step closer to understanding the performance potential of their personal computers with the launch of 3DMark® Vantage. Gamers, media and OEMs now have a modern gaming performance benchmark to measure native DirectX 10 and multi-core CPU performance with large amounts of physics, AI and graphics.

3DMark® Vantage was created by a select group of Futuremark artists and engineers working in close cooperation with the Benchmark Development Program (BDP) members [Ageia, AMD, Compal, Dell, Gateway, HP, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Sapphire Technology, Velocity Micro, Vivante Corp., Qimonda] , "3DMark smashes out of the box in delivering a view to virtual reality that pushes the performance envelope of the latest in PC Hardware for years to come." said Jukka Mäkinen Ph.D., Vice President of the PC Business Unit at Futuremark. "Consumers to professionals will be able to get immediate comparisons with thousands of others using our online results browser, helping them to fully understand the results and how they can improve their computer’s gaming performance potential."

3DMark®Vantage is composed of four full-bore benchmarking tests (2 different CPU tests and 2 different GPU tests) and 6 feature tests. Four presets, a groundbreaking new feature, vastly augment the variety of PCs that can be tested with the product. Presets range from value through performance to high end cinematic rendering resolutions and features. By creating a new set of high end presets, 3DMark®Vantage is future proofed for the new multi-core CPU and Graphics Processing Unit products as well as supporting the Physics Processing Unit to expand the range of technology, testing and prevent the benchmark from being bottlenecked for its users.

The Latest GPU Features:

* Completely new DirectX 10 rendering engine developed by Futuremark, taking full advantage of geometry shaders, vertex stream out and the new shader model 4.0.
* Advanced post-processing effects including lenticular halos, anamorphic and lens flares, streaking, bloom, depth-of-field, motion blur, color correction, depth fog and volumetric fog.
* GPU-simulated physics content including planet surface shockwaves, firestorms and atmospheric evaporation; reactive cloth, physical particle effects and a completely new interactive water simulation with large-scale waves and foam formation.
* High-fidelity, physically based surface shading models, including anisotropic materials like brushed metal and plastic and concrete.

Multi-Core CPU Features:

* Heavily multi-threaded artificial intelligence (AI) featuring co-operative 3D-pathfinding algorithms, utilizing a state-of-the art lock-free task scheduling core.
* Next-generation physics workloads featuring fluids, rigid bodies, joints, cloth and soft bodies.
* Support for Physics Processing Unit hardware acceleration.

The screens didn't look impressive and it sounds like the people on the FM forums agree with me, still I'd like to see a video of it (some people made a 30fps videos by capturing every frame of 3dmark06 for example) to judge for myself for real.

why support something that only 2-3 cards could run. maybe later it will be added with a patch

That is correct. You have to get a serial from them, and it will only let you bench using that serial one time.

Well, I didn't expect them to cripple it that much. I'm not a bencher, so I'll leave this version to those who get something out of it. :S

Charging to run it more than once is low.

OMFG! THIS is the reason I own a PC! Try running this you console N00Bz!

EDIT: WTF! Trial version is one time use only?! So we are now paying $10 for the same functionality we got for free in previous years?

IF you bought them ALL why is this one going to be any different for you?

I've never bought a 3DMark. I guage my PC performance with games I actually play... (and the trial versions ::D:)

Crysis is all the benchmark I need for now

3dmark is boring and time consuming, they could have at least overlayed a tetris game or something while its running to keep me occupied.
