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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Except at the "Entry" setting, 3DMark Vantage seems to enjoy having a couple cards at its disposal. The GTX260s easily win at every available setting and the scaling is nearly as good as it gets. At stock settings, the SLI setup is 56% better than a single, overclocked, GTX260. Overclocking grants an additional 14% performance improvement, making it nearly 80% faster than a single card. While they were constantly being beaten by the red dual GPU cards in the previous 3DMark, this time around the green team comes out as the clear winner.
