Review: 900MHz, but 10°C cooler than reference cards









Futeremark Vantage

GTX 480 is currently the fastest single-GPU card, but XFX came very close with its HD 5870 Black Edition and even won by 2.7% in the most demanding, Vantage Extreme test.

The GTX 480’s advantage over the reference HD 5870, however, melts from 10.5% in Performance to 6.2% in High and ends up at about 3% in Vantage Extreme.

In Vantage tests, the GTX 480 constantly beats the GTX 470. Performance test reports 24.7% better results, High settings report 26.6%, whereas Extreme settings result in a 27.2% advantage, naturally in favor of the GTX 480.

Comparing the GTX 470 to the reference HD 5870 shows that the latter card packs more punch in more demanding tests. The GTX 470 ends up 12.7% slower in Vantage Performance, 19.3% at High settings and 23.4% at Extreme settings.
