Like our GTX 480 Overclock article we'll be running our whole benchmark line up. This means we'll be able to add to our TPR and TVR graphs. We've added a number of cards in the graphs today which include the GTX 470, of course at its stock speeds, which is 608MHz on the Core, 1215MHz on the Shader and 3348MHz QDR on the memory. The same card overclocked to 774MHz on the Core, 1548MHz on the Shader and 4000MHz QDR on the memory.
We'll also be including in stock forms the big brother GTX 480 and the top single GPU card from ATI, the HD 5870. With some impressive clocks gained with the voltage adjustment, let's hope we'll see some big performance out of the card here today.
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.
It doesn't take long for the GTX 470 to really stretch its legs. Thanks to the overclock, not only do we have a massive gain in performance, but we also see the model sits almost directly on top of the more expensive GTX 480.
