And finally, we have 3DMark Vantage's overall index. I'm pleased to have games that will challenge the performance of a new graphics card today, so we don't have to rely on an educated guess about possible future usage models like 3DMark. However, I did collect some scores to see how the GPUs would fare, so here they are. Note that I used the "High" presets for the benchmark rather than "Extreme," which is what everyone else seems to be using. Somehow, I thought frame rates in the fives were low enough.
The GT200's enhanced processing engine serves it well in 3DMark Vantage. As I've mentioned, Nvidia claims the GT200's larger register file has tangible benefits with Vantage's complex shaders.
