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.


What we'll mainly be looking at today is seeing how the HD 5870 Eyefinity6 Edition with 2GB of memory compares against the standard HD 5870 which carries with it only 1GB. With both models carrying the same core and memory speed, we'll see just how much the extra memory helps us when it comes to gaming.


We've also included in the graphs the two new GTX 400 series models along with the HD 5970 2GB.


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 here that both HD 5870 models perform very similar. In our performance preset you can see it's actually a bit slower.
