Testing:

Featuring all-new game tests, this benchmark is for use with Vista-based systems. "There are two all-new CPU tests that have been designed around a new 'Physics and Artificial Intelligence-related computation.' CPU test two offers support for physics related hardware." There are four preset levels that correspond to specific resolutions. "Entry" is 1024x768 progressing to "Extreme" at 1920x1200. Of course, each preset can be modified to arrange any number of user designed testing. For our testing, I will use the four presets at all default settings.

 

Settings

  • Settings (each preset): Default Testing
  • Entry: 1024 x 768
  • Performance: 1280 x 1024
  • High: 1680 x 1050
  • Extreme: 1920 x 1200

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

   

   

   

Higher = Better

 

At stock speeds, the ASUS GTX 580 is again similar in performance to the reference card. Where this card earns its keep is in its overclocked performance. At 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, the ASUS GTX 580 is the fastest card in the comparison and is just edged out at 2560x1600 by the HD 5970.
