3DMark Vantage Professional
3DMark Vantage is the latest addition to the 3DMark series, measuring Shader 4.0 (i.e., DirectX 10) performance. We ran this program on its default configuration (“Performance” profile), which is run at 1280×1024. We also included the results for the CPU benchmarking done by this program.
Here again the three CPUs included in our comparison achieved similar performances. This shows how nowadays the video card is the major player in 3D performance.
On Vantage’s CPU benchmarking Core 2 Duo
E7200 achieved the same performance level of Core 2 Duo E6700, being 9.21% faster than Core 2 Duo E6600.
