Why 3DMark Vantage doesn't support DX10.1

Posted on Thursday, May 01 2008 @ 01:25:21 CEST by

PC Games Hardware asked Futuremark if the new 3DMark Vantage benchmark uses DX10.1 and heard they didn't incorporate it because it become available so late in the development process:
PCGH: Does 3DMark Vantage makes use of DX10.1? If so, is it relevant for the final score?

Dr. Jukka Makinen: 3DMark Vantage is a DirectX 10.0 benchmark, so DX10.1 features do not have an effect on the final score. DirectX 10.1 became available so late in the development process that we were not able to test and evaluate it in time for potential inclusion into this benchmark release.
The fact that none of NVIDIA's current graphics cards support DX10.1 is probably also a major reason why they didn't put DX10.1 support in 3DMark Vantage.

We all know the real reason, right Nvidia?

Whenever Nvidia has the upper hand they stop innovating...

i.e. the 9xxx series of current garbage
the entire lack of DX 10.1 support
no displayport

    Has Nvidia bought Futuremark?
