After the launch of Windows 10 on July 29 we will stop selling 3DMark Vantage on Steam.
If you own 3DMark Vantage you can continue to use it in Steam. It won't disappear from your Steam library.
After July 29, 2015, 3DMark Vantage will only be available to buy from the Futuremark Store. We plan to continue to support 3DMark Vantage for a while yet, so if you need help, please post on our support page.
3DMark Vantage keys bought from the Futuremark Store, or received as a gift, trade or promotion can still be added to Steam.
For benchmarking modern hardware running Windows 10, we recommend the Fire Strike and Sky Diver tests in the latest version of 3DMark.
3DMark Vantage uses a component called SystemInfo to identify the hardware in your system. This patch updates SystemInfo to version 4.31.
Updated GPU detection module to improve compatibility with the latest GPUs.
Updated CPUID module for improved hardware detection.
Fixed memory module detection on Windows 10 Technical Preview.
Note that while Windows 10 is in development there may be unforeseeable compatibility problems with some hardware configurations. Windows 10 Technical Preview is not an officially supported OS for Futuremark benchmarks at this time.
Futuremark SystemInfo updated to v4.20. SystemInfo is a component used in many Futuremark benchmarks to identify the hardware in your system. It does not collect any personally identifiable information. SystemInfo updates do not affect benchmark scores but you may need the latest version in order to get a valid score.
Futuremark SystemInfo v4.20 release notes: • Updated CPUID module for improved hardware detection. • Updated AMD ADL library for improved compatibility with latest hardware. • Improved hardware scan speed by about 50%. • Added Windows 8 RTC verification to online result validation.
