Today we'll be seeing how the GTX 285 2GB OC from GIGABYTE goes against the stock clocked 1GB GTX 285 from ASUS. We'll also see what kind of performance increase we get from the GTX 275.


One thing we'll also be looking at when comparing the two GTX 285s is whether or not the extra MHz and extra memory help compensate for the drop in memory MHz.

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 off the bat we can see the two GTX 285s perform quite similar to each other, with the GIGABYTE having a slight edge.
