Today we'll have a look at how the HD 4770 goes against the higher-end HD 4890 from ATI.

 

Being a mid-range video card, we won't be covering the 2560 x 1600 resolution, but we'll still see how the HD 4770 performs at resolutions as high as 1920 x 1200.

 

Let's get started!

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.

We can see that the HD 4770 does fall a fair bit behind the HD 4890 under Vantage.

 

We'll have to see how this translates into real-world performance though and see if we can start picking up that 30 FPS minimum.
