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
  • Entry: 1024x768
  • Performance: 1280x1024
  • High: 1680x1050
  • Extreme: 1920x1200

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even though the Toxic and Vapor-X HD 4890s are the top of the single GPU ATI food chain they still are trumped in 3DMark Vantage. The good news is that ATI and their partners keep chipping away at the performance delivered by the GT200 cards from Nvidia. At the Extreme preset, the 4890's performance is better than the GTX 260s and the best of the last generation HD4XXX series form Sapphire.
