We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.
We'll be checking out the Low Profile GTS 450 from Palit against a number of other cards including the full height Platinum Sonic version of the card from Palit, HD 5750 and HD 5770 from AMD and the GTX 460.
It'll be good to see where exactly a reference GTS 450 sits as well.
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.
Performance out of the gate isn't bad. While it does lag a fair bit behind the heavily overclocked Platinum Sonic from Palit, it's still considerably faster than the HD 5750.
