MSI GeForce GTS 450 Cyclone 1GB Video Card Overclocked - Test System Setup and 3DMark Vantage

By: Shawn Baker | NVIDIA GeForce GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Sep 13, 2010 12:26 pm
Manufacturer: MSI



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


Along with the HD 5770, HD 5750 and GTX 460, we've also got the MSI GTS 450 and the out of the box clocks to see just what kind of gains the 950 / 1900 / 4500MHz QDR setup gets us.


Let's get started!


3DMark Vantage


Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1

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.




Straight away we can see a very nice boost in performance. While the card out of the box sits close to the HD 5770, you can see when we begin to crank up the clock speeds it becomes a clear leader. Compared to the GTX 460, though, you can still see the model sits a little back which is warranted with the $100 US price difference.
