Default 3dmark Vantage Review

3DMark Vantage Review

So heres how it works:

There are sections:

High/Extreme Presets
The High and Extreme presets are for really expensive cards

Entry and Performance Presets
For the cheap not so great cards, most current Mid/High End Cards score around 14k in this section

cool. shame its 7$ for basic personal one ^^;;. guess i'll give the 1 use only version a shot for fun. doesn't come with orb verification thingy tho.
i bet ill probably score sub 14k lol, its probably just as cpu dependand as 06.

edit~ rofl it destroyed my pc. most of it ran between 8 and 15fps.ORB - World of Performance

P6219 3DMarks

Graphics score is less than half of what it should be. cpu at 3.2 just sucks for 3dmark overall.
one thing to not is it says my cpu is at 3600 but it isnt heh. cpuz and everest and windows itself all say its running at 3.6, but its only 3.2. no clue whats wrong there ;p

I think my GPU is starting to get slagged anyway. makin some odd noises. meh.

A 14k score is very hard to get. With a 9800GTX and an overclocked Q6600, I only get P6,705.

lol my card costed over 600$ + tax when i got it so i assumed that was in the high/expensive. XD such a waste lol 9800gtx has same performance for 1/2 price XD wish it was out a year ago, coulda bought 2 ; ;.

id say high/expensive is for Multiple GPU's ><
