HIS Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card in Crossfire w/ 960 Shaders Overclocked - Test System Setup and 3DMark Vantage

By: Shawn Baker | AMD CrossFire Articles in Video Cards | Posted: Nov 26, 2010 11:08 am
Manufacturer: HIS



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.


The main two setups we'll be looking at today is of course the HD 6850 in Crossfire at stock and overclocked to see just what kind of gains we're able to get out of the overclock we managed to achieve. Saying that, we've also included a number of single AMD cards just so you can see how it compares against some other setups.


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.




Under Vantage we see a nice little boost in performance in both the X and P presets. Hopefully this translates well into some real world games which we'll check out in just a moment.
