The main thing we want to look at is just how the Sapphire HD 5970 TOXIC 4GB performs when compared to the 2GB reference version from Sapphire. Also included in the graphs are the new NVIDIA cards, the GTX 470 and the new single GPU bad boy, the GTX 480.
It's worth remembering that the top NVIDIA card is designed to compete against the HD 5870 of which is a single GPU video card. No doubt we want to see how NVIDIAs fastest looks against ATIs fastest, though.
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.
Straight out the gate we're seeing big numbers from the Sapphire HD 5970 4GB TOXIC. Our P score is almost 30,000 while our X is well into the 16,000s.
