We'll be checking out the HAWK against a number of cards here today, but let's see what kind of gains the model gives us over the Cyclone version from MSI which carries a 725MHz core.
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 see a nice little performance bump from that 780MHz core.
