GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5830 1GB Video Card - Test System Setup and 3DMark Vantage

GIGABYTE sends over a HD 5830 which looks the goods with a mean looking cooling fan. We look at it today on our new test setup.

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Western Digital, Noctua and Thermaltake.

 

While we've looked at the HD 5830 before, this is the first time we'll be checking it out on our new testbed setup with a bunch of new games. Let's see how the model is looking against the HD 5850 with the latest 10.3a Catalyst Drivers. We've also thrown in the GTX 470, because we can.

 

Let's get started!

 


3DMark Vantage

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.

The HD 5830 does a good job under 3DMark Vantage. The big thing to remember here, though, is it's not a game and rather just a benchmark program. For most part, the performance here doesn't really matter.
