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.

As we mentioned earlier in the introduction, we'll be looking at the HD 5830 Twin FrozrII when overclocked to 875MHz / 4760MHz QDR against a stock HD 5830 and also a stock HD 5850.

Just because we can, we've also included the GTX 470 in the benchmark graphs. Remember, though; the model is significantly more expensive than the HD 5830.

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.

Under Vantage we can see the extra MHz clearly shows a gain in performance. Really, though, it's quite a small difference. Hopefully we see some more significant jumps in our real world testing.
