High End Radeons - Then and Now - Test System Setup and 3DMark Vantage

The HD 5870 and HD 5970 we see today are quite different to the ones we saw at the launch of the model. Step inside and we'll explain why.

| AMD Radeon GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Mar 24, 2010 5:41 am
Manufacturer: AMD

 

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Western Digital, Noctua and Thermaltake.

 

The GTX 400 series are going to be high-end parts and while the GTX 480 might not be a dual GPU model, the price it's going to sell for makes the HD 5970 an option for people who want to spend the big dollars. For those reasons that's why we've chosen to include the top two cards from ATI.

 

The first is the highly popular single GPU HD 5870 which we've come to know and love; the other is the dual GPU HD 5970 which I personally use and has the privilege of driving my Eyefinity setup through so many games.

 

Let's get started!

3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.

 

3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.

We can see in both presets there are some serious great performance increases being seen from both high end ATI models.
