The main card we'll be comparing the Turbo HD 5830 to today is the stock HD 5830 from GIGABYTE. We've also thrown in the HD 5850 and GTX 470 for good measure, but remember that these models cost considerably more.
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.
Under Vantage we see a nice little boost in performance; especially at the Performance preset.
