New 3DMark in the works

Post by TheOneNamedViper » Fri Feb 08, 2008 2:22 am

Futuremark has released information on the next iteration of 3DMark: 3DMark Vantage.

The new benchmark will be DirectX10 exclusively, and thus Vista only.

Of course, when you look at the screenshots they have released, it is easy to understand why they need DX10: This thing has more eye candy than Crysis!

You'll have to go to the link I posted to see them, since they're too big to justifiably post on the front page.

It's a computer game benchmark program. It gives you a point rating so you know how fast/slow your computer is. Then again, considering how it looks, it might as well be a movie.
