Today we'll be seeing how the GTX 260+ from Galaxy fares against some of its other NVIDIA counter parts. We'll have a look and see what kind of performance improvement the card offers over the cheaper GTS 250 and see just how far away the card sits when compared to the more expensive GTX 275 as well.

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 can see that there's a serious performance boost over the GTS 250. Compared to the GTX 275, though, the card doesn't sit that far behind.
