Testbed

Motherboard: MSI P45D3 Platinum ( Provided by: MSI );
Processor: Intel Core 2 QX9770 Extreme edition at 3.6GHz ( Provided by: Intel );
Memory: Corsair Dominator 12800 7-7-7-24 ( Provided by: Corsair);
HDD: WD VelociRaptor 300G 10,000RPM ( Provided by: SmoothCreation );
Driver:  ForceWare 195.50, Catalyst CCC 9.11 Vista 32 SP1



Futuremark Tests

Futuremark reports that the new cards don't bring significant performance difference compared to the cards they're supposed to succeed (9600/9500), but they consume less power, feature DX10.1 support and require no additional audio connectors.

Gainward's GT240, which we used for comparison with AXLE GT240, is overclocked, which is the reason for Gainward's better result. The same goes for comparing Gainward GT220 and AXLE GT220 cards.

Vantage tests rate GT240 and 9800GT cards similarly, but the 9800GT's power is evident in gaming tests where 9800GT clearly takes the cake.
