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:

  • All default settings in each preset level
  • Entry 1024x768
  • Performance 1280x1024
  • High 1680x1050
  • Extreme 1920x1200

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The performance in Vantage is well above the HD 4870 stock and overclocked models. Performance against the green camp is still somewhat lacking in this test as the overclocked GTX 260 from Palit and the GTX 275 stock card beats this card across all four resolutions.
