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 the GIGABYTE GTX 480 SOC card out against a few other ones here today. Single card setups include the GTX 460 Black Edition from ECS and the HD 6870 Turbo from HIS.
Dual card setups include the HD 6850 in CrossFire and the GIGABYTE GTX 460 OC in SLI as well. It'll be interesting to see how the card performs against these overclocked setups today.
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.
The GTX 480 SOC from GIGABYTE performs strong under Vantage, but it doesn't quite have the grunt to beat the dual card setups we've got here.
