3DMark Vantage is benchmark suite designed computer systems offering one-click simplicity for casual users and detailed, professional grade testing for industry, press and enthusiasts.
A 3DMark score is a measure of your computer’s performance across a variety of 3D operations.
Strangely enough, the maximum overclock benefits the Black Edition kit rather insignificantly. The score nudges up only 2 weak points in its benchmark test - showing that timings AND frequency increase is what is needed to push those scores up. The difference between 1600MHz and 1800MHz is a clear indicator of this.
