3DMark06 reports Gainward GTX260 GS GLH’s 8% advantage over the reference GTX260 card. This result however is just scratching the surface as Vantage tests report a 14% advantage.
Far Cry 2
Gainward GLH runs 13% faster than the reference GTX 260. Radeon HD4870 had no choice but to look from a distance, as it couldn’t get close to GLH’s results.
World in Conflict
Initially we only scored 3% to 8% better results compared to the reference card, but 2560x1600 shows Goes Like Hell’s real colors, as the card scores 15% better.
Left 4 Dead
Radeon HD 4870 1GB manages to beat the reference GTX260 at many resolutions, but it simply couldn’t handle Gainward’s GTX260 GS GLH. GLH again ends up by about 13% faster than the reference GTX260.
