A small review of 3DMark Vantage. 3DMark Vantage is a gamers benchmark for the DX10 platform. Its primary purpose is to help gamers evaluate their system performance for gaming use, and through online services relate the tested system to other available hardware. This should provide true value to gamers by enabling them to make better purchasing decisions, and to compete against each other in system performance.
Earlier this week we again drove to the datacenter to install our newest server "Corleone", a new front-end server that is soon going to be used for our rapidly growing forums. We'll show you the specs and some insider info on that server later on. but first let's have a look at where we are hosted, the racks, the gear and the network we are broadcasting over.

The Definitive Multi-GPU World Tour continues and it's finally our turn at the plate. Our task is testing and benchmarking a set of games not commonly used in most hardware reviews, but we also take the time to check out texture filtering quality differences between ATI and NVIDIA hardware.

So you think a Pentium 4 2.8 Gigahertz with 1 Gigabyte DDR400 is sufficient for the hottest graphics cards ? Think again. Our recent reviews where showing a lot of CPU limitation on cards like Radeon x800 Pro and XT, GeForce 6800 GT and Ultra.So let;'s do some tests on the latest gem from AMD, the Athlon 64 3800+ and do a CPU scaling article.

Ever since it's release earlier this year 3DMark 03 has been one of the most popular downloads here on Guru3D.com, last week I was checking some statistics and noticed that we are getting close to 1 million downloads of this product. Yes, you read that right, 1.000.0000 x 180 MB has been served through our servers.
I figured it would be a nice gesture to design a little contest to celebrate this event and contacted FutureMark, within a few emails I was able to get you guys some excellent stuff for a nice giveaway. Today we are starting a contest to commemorate the this event and will give away eleven prices.

In the past we have used AquaMark 2.3 in our benchmark suite and although still a reputable application Massive figured it was time for the next best thing. This is AquaMark 3, a benchmark that will utilize some of the finest DirectX 9 capabilities like Pixel and Vertex Shaders 2.0
These Wallpapers are the result of a contest we recently had here at Guru3D.com, when time passes new entries will be included.
