The clocks we achieved as mentioned on the previous page are just insane. Let's see what that does for performance and see how the card compares to a couple of other NVIDIA and ATI ones.
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.
Damn! Straight away we see massive performance gains; the card only just trails the much more expensive HD 5870.
