3DMark Vantage Benchmark Results

3DMark Vantage is a computer benchmark by Futuremark (formerly named Mad Onion) to determine the DirectX 10 performance of 3D game performance with graphics cards. A 3DMark score is an overall measure of your system's 3D gaming capabilities, based on comprehensive real-time 3D graphics and processor tests. By comparing your score with those submitted by millions of other gamers you can see how your gaming rig performs, making it easier to choose the most effective upgrades or finding other ways to optimize your system.

There are two graphics tests in 3DMark Vantage: Jane Nash (Graphics Test 1) and New Calico (Graphics Test 2). The Jane Nash test scene represents a large indoor game scene with complex character rigs, physical GPU simulations, multiple dynamic lights, and complex surface lighting models. It uses several hierarchical rendering steps, including for water reflection and refraction, and physics simulation collision map rendering. The New Calico test scene represents a vast space scene with lots of moving but rigid objects and special content like a huge planet and a dense asteroid belt.

At Benchmark Reviews, we believe that synthetic benchmark tools are just as valuable as video games, but only so long as you're comparing apples to apples. Since the same test is applied in the same controlled method with each test run, 3DMark is a reliable tool for comparing graphic cards against one-another.

1680x1050 is rapidly becoming the new 1280x1024. More and more widescreen are being sold with new systems or as upgrades to existing ones. Even in tough economic times, the tide cannot be turned back; screen resolution and size will continue to creep up. Using this resolution as a starting point, the maximum settings were applied to 3DMark Vantage include 8x Anti-Aliasing, 16x Anisotropic Filtering, all quality levels at Extreme, and Post Processing Scale at 1:2.

The two test scenes in 3DMark Vantage provide a varied and modern set of challenges for the video cards and their subsystems, as described above. The results always produced higher frame rates for GT1 and so far, I haven't seen any curveball results like I used to see with 3DMark06. The HD5770 came close to the GTX260-216 in GT1 and basically equaled it in GT2. In both test cases, the HD5770 easily beat an overclocked (ASUS TOP series) HD4850 card. The GTX275 and GTX285 pull away from the middle of the pack, as they should for the price difference. The relative parity of these two high end contenders is due to the factory overclocks that they came with, out of the box. The GTX285 is capable of higher numbers, which I demonstrated in this article.

At a higher screen resolution, 1920x1200, the story is similar, but the HD5770 gets a little closer to the GTX260 in GT1 and actually surpasses it by a small margin in GT2. The 128-bit memory bus doesn't seem to hurt the card at all with higher resolutions. Once again the HD5770 beats the older HD48xx series cards, hinting that the latest mid-range card could be an excellent upgrade for Radeon users with cards that are 1-2 years old. We need to look at actual gaming performance to verify that, so let's take a look in the next section, at how these cards stack up in the standard bearer for gaming benchmarks, Crysis.

# Low Scores on ati 5770 xfire ? ronald jan 2010-11-27 20:43
i cant seem to know the problem with my set up why im getting a low scores on benchmark test with re5 using ati 5770 GPU.

scores with the same set-up: 1920 x 1200 with all settings were max out 8xAA was only 24.1fps with the single card and 42.1 fps with crossfire setup.

Specs:

GPU: Sapphire ATI 5770 Vapor X crossfire config with 1 crossfire cable connected
Proci: thuban 1090t h50 water cooled
mobo: msi 790gx-65g
hdd: samsung 500gb 7200rpm 3.5
mem: ocz obsidian dd3 1600mhz 4GB ( 2by2Gb)
PSU: thermaltake litepower 600w
Monitor: Sony 32in bravia lcd TV
software: dx 11 cat 10.11 win 7

can somebody please help..could it be some components maybe bottleneck?
