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.

 

Today in our results we've included a couple of video cards. The most important one is the reference GTX 470 as we want to see what the extra MHz on the core does for overall performance.

 

We've also included the GTX 480 and HD 5870 for good measure.

 

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.

In our first test we can see the small bump in MHz on the core helps improve performance slightly at both presets.
