We'll today mainly be comparing the OC version of the Sapphire HD 5550 against the stock clocked HIS one we looked at recently. We've also thrown in the new GDDR5 HD 5570 along with a HD 5670 for good measure.
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 a nice boost from the OC that is offered from Sapphire.
