Test System Setup
Processor(s): Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3150MHz (350MHz FSB with 1:1 memory)
Motherboard(s): ASUS P5B Deluxe (Supplied by ASUS)
Memory: 2 X 1GB G.Skill HZ PC8000 @ 350MHz 4-4-4-12 (Supplied by Bronet)
Hard Disk(s): Hitachi 80GB 7200RPM SATA 2
Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP2
Drivers: nVidia ForceWare 96.97 (Testing Driver) and ATI Catalyst 6.10
Continuing with out new ASUS P5B Deluxe motherboard installed we will have a look at how both the GTX and GTS compare to each other along with how the compare to the current ATI top dog, the Radeon X1950XTX and the previous generation top dog from nVidia, the dual GPU wielding GeForce 7950GX2.
So how much performance differences will there be between the new GTS and GTX? The price difference is quite significant with the GTX costing around $150 USD (roughly $200 AUD) more than the GTS, so we imagine (or hope) there will be equally significant performance increases on the top dog.
Let's get started and find out. We've also added the Company of Heroes demo to expand our coverage of benchmarking tests.

For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.
With our first benchmark we can see that the GTX offers a very large performance increase over the GTS in our first synthetic test.
