Featuring all-new game tests, the 3DMark Vantage 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 (each preset): Default Testing
- Entry: 1024x768
- Performance: 1280x1024
- High: 1680x1050
- Extreme: 1920x1200
Higher = Better
The results in 3DMark Vantage are a reverse of what we have been seeing throughout the review. What this shows is that the HD 5550 is limited due to its 512MB of memory and the performance will decease as the settings increase. Since the XFX HD 5570 has 1GB of memory, it was not quite as limited.
