Diamond HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 Video Card ReviewTue, Aug 19, 2008 - 12:00 AM
3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware. 3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.
Results: Through 3DMark Vantage the HD 4870 pulls through with high results but only when the resolution is cranked up to 1920×1200 does the card really shine with a 25% higher score than the HD 4850.
