Galaxy GeForce GTS 450 Super OC 1GB in SLI - Test System Setup and 3DMark Vantage

That time has come for the latest, most talked about video cards from NVIDIA where we pair the Galaxy GTS 450 Super OC with another one and see what happens.

By: | NVIDIA SLI Articles in Video Cards | Posted: Sep 16, 2010 11:19 am
Manufacturer: Galaxy



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.


As we mentioned recently, we've just undergone some changes with the testbeds and for that reasons we don't have as many results as we're used to. And while we're filling them up quickly, currently most of the models we're looking at are mid range ones.


With that said, we'll be comparing the Galaxy GTS 450 Super OC in SLI against just the one Galaxy GTS 450, the MSI GTS 450 at 950MHz, the HD 5770 and the ECS Black GTX 460 1GB.


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 off the bat we can see how strong SLI performance is. Not only does it offer a good jump over the ECS Black GTX 460 which carries with it an overclock, but its scaling is fantastic with performance being almost double under 3DMark Vantage.
