The three main setups we want to look at today is the GTX 570 GLH at its out of the box clocks, the same card overclocked to see the kind of performance gains we get, and also the GTX 580 to see how close the overclocked even higher GTX 570 GLH can get to it.
We've also included a few other setups including the GTX 460 SLI one, GTX 480 along with some HD 6800s in Crossfire action to just give you a good idea of how everything sits.
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 see a nice little performance boost under Vantage; you can see we're still a little behind the GTX 580, though, here.
