It better not be another Vantage, Vantage was a freaking joke.

tbh, I didn't think people still used 3DMark; I thought there were better and free-er options out there, or that people preferred real-world benchmarks instead.

I certainly haven't used 3DMark since they were called madonion...

I've never used any of these. Cause I've always had crap PCs and was ashamed of the scores I would get after seeing mad scores here on Bit.

I've never had any luck with these 3DMark apps as I always get widely different ratings every time!

The final straw was when I moved my 4870X2 from my old socket939 system into my new i7 build and ran the test again and the same GPU scored a quarter of the score it got in my last system! The overall score wasn't much higher than my last PC even through it was FAR more powerful!

In my humble opinion, 3DMark made 2 big mistakes. The first was requiring you to go on-line to view your score and the second was charging for the benchmark. The first I could live with, the second was unforgivable. I think their best benchmark was 03'. It was free. it tested several aspects of your CPU/GPU and even showed you the hit you took from your sound card (unfortunately the sound tests don't work on Vista or 7 OS's).
They need to get back to where they were and let sponsors pay for their work.

Good stuff, another Mark product to add to my collection. Will have to upgrade around the same time as well.

Another way to show off how big your epeen is lol. Benchmarks are not everything. That and you know they are going to make you pay for it...

I've never really seen the value in these programs, will be giving this one a miss.

I disagree Star*Dagger, 3D Mark Vantage was Nvidia optimised rubbish. Unigine Heaven was the first DX11 benchmark, looks amazing and is free. Really Heaven should be the standard now.

However I completely agree with you about Shattered Horizon. Not only a technological triumph but something completely original in execution and gameplay. I hope they develop it further!
