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

  

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almost 12,000 points in 3DMark Vantage on the Xtreme preset from a single card is huge. The only single card to do this is the HD 5970 OC. This is over a 2000 point gain. Still behind the Crossfire HD 5870 setup but it still rocks.
