We've got a bunch of cards in our article today, but the main thing we'll be looking at is the performance of the GTX 580 at 900 / 1800 / 4200 QDR against the same card at its stock clocks which is 772 / 1544 / 4008 QDR.
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 off the bat you can see a great performance increase from the card when at 900MHz.
