You might have read that Microsoft will stop supporting Windows Vista on April 11. We will stop supporting our two Windows Vista benchmarks, 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage, on the same day. Our Vantage benchmarks were designed for Windows Vista, an operating system that is over 10 years old and which is now used by only 1.12% of Windows users according to StatCounter.
