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've got a few cards in our lineup today and the main ones would be the GTX 580, GTX 480 and HD 6870. We've also got some Crossfire and SLI action included to give us a good idea of exactly where the card sits.
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.
Compared to the other NVIDIA models in our graphs we can see that the card sits a little behind the GTX 580 / GTX 460 SLI setup, but a good chunk ahead of the GTX 480. No doubt that's thanks to the big OC Gainward is offering us on the card.
