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 we'll have a look at the Galaxy GTX 460 1GB against the Palit Sonic Platinum which carries with it an 800MHz core and the GIGABYTE OC model which carries a much lower 715MHz core.
Because we can, we've also got the Gainward GTX 470 Golden Sample, GIGABYTE HD 5830 and Sapphire HD 5850 involved.
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 away we can see that the 10MHz edge that Galaxy has on the Palit offering gives us a few extra points in both the P and X preset.
