PNY & XFX GeForce GTX 285 Video Card ReviewsFri, Mar 06, 2009 - 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. The performance preset settings were used for testing in 3DMark Vantage.
3DMark 2006 is heavily CPU limited with these GPUs, but 3DMark Vantage scales incredibly well with the frequency differences between the various GPUs. The huge shader overclocks the GTX285s have explains the huge performance jump going from the GTX280 to the GTX285.
