We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Western Digital, Noctua and Thermaltake.

Today we'll be mainly looking at how the heavily overclocked HD 5870 SOC from GIGABYTE compares against the card in its stock overclocked form. We've also included the HD 5870 in stock form along with the GTX 470.

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.

Looking at Vantage, we can see a small bump in performance; nothing huge, but the X preset is able to break 10k which is no doubt impressive.
