PCGH: Does 3DMark Vantage makes use of DX10.1? If so, is it relevant for the final score?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.
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.
