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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overclocked, the card comes in third place in all four of the 3DMark Vantage preset tests, destroying its cousin the GTS 250. The 4850 nearly closed the gap. At stock, the card lost steam as the resolutions rose.
