Like we mentioned in our Sapphire HD 5870 Vapor-X review, a new testbed means we've got nothing to compare the new cards we test against. So with that said, we've compared the GTX 260+ Razor Edition from Galaxy against another standard GTX 260+.
As far as game numbers go, we won't find anything different with both cards coming in at the same speed. Our main focus will be just seeing how the GTX 260+ Razor Edition from Galaxy performs in our new games and see if the model is still capable of pushing out some good numbers in today's hottest games.
The main numbers we'll be looking at between the two cards is the cooling and temperature numbers. We hope that the Galaxy single slot cooler doesn't cause the card to run too warm. We also hope that the small fan doesn't bring us any worrying noise levels. We'll find this all out and more in our benchmarks as we push on and wind things up.
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 see the GTX 260+ offers some good numbers under Vantage. Over 11000 in the P preset is nothing to sneeze at, nor is a score of over 4500 at the X one.
