Question: There’s some points we have found that 3DMark lacks, for example, OpenGL benchmark, Sound Card features test, special test for mouse and keyboard (this will be great for hard-core FPS fans )
Answer: ID and the OpenGL committee already make a great benchmark for OpenGL, Quake and Viewperf. The others are covered by internal tests at manufacturers.
Question: Why named “Vantage”?
Answer: As a benchmark, we have a unique Vantage point from which to view the competition. Also, I wanted a V to go with Vista.
