3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
The 4850x2 bursts onto the scene, taking the lead in every benchmark we threw at it. All that is apart from Vantage. For whatever reason Vantage refused to run without throwing up a lot of glitches, tearing and artifacts which rendered the benchmark useless and was therefore unable to return a score. This is most likely due to a driver issue that will hopefully be rectified in the near future, especially as Vantage is part of the bundled software!
