As expected Futuremark today released the 3DMark Vantage benchmark. This is a DirectX 10 benchmark so to run it you'll need Windows Vista and a DX10 compliant graphics card. Another thing most of you won't like is that the free version can be used only once, after that you'll have to pay $6.95 to activate your copy.
3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware. 3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.
The download is 450MB big and you can find more than a dozen mirrors over here.
