With this being our first GTX 275 review, we've compared it to a number of cards today. We see where the GTX 275 sits between its big and little brother, the GTX 285 and GTX 260. We also compare the card against what it's supposed to go up against, the HD 4890.

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.

No surprise here with the NVIDIA offerings coming out way ahead, this thanks to the PhysX implementation in Vantage.
