As we already mentioned, we will be looking at the HIS HD 4850 IceQ4 TurboX in both single and Crossfire form today. We will also compare the cards against a stock clocked HD 4850 from Sapphire to see how the extra MHz on the core and memory go for performance.

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 good gain over a stock clocked HD 4850. As always, Vantage makes excellent use of Crossfire and it gives us some impressive gains.
