DX10: 3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX10 graphics card performance. FutureMark 3DMark Vantage is the latest addition the 3DMark benchmark series built by FutureMark corporation. Although 3DMark Vantage requires NVIDIA PhysX to be installed for program operation, only the CPU/Physics test relies on this technology.

3DMark Vantage offers benchmark tests focusing on GPU, CPU, and Physics performance. Benchmark Reviews uses the two GPU-specific tests for grading video card performance: Jane Nash and New Calico. These tests isolate graphical performance, and remove processor dependence from the benchmark results.

3DMark Vantage GPU Test: Jane Nash

Of the two GPU tests 3DMark Vantage offers, the Jane Nash performance benchmark is slightly less demanding. In a short video scene the special agent escapes a secret lair by water, nearly losing her shirt in the process. Benchmark Reviews tests this DirectX-10 scene at 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 resolutions, and uses Extreme quality settings with 8x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. The 1:2 scale is utilized, and is the highest this test allows. By maximizing the processing levels of this test, the scene creates the highest level of graphical demand possible and sorts the strong from the weak.

Cost Analysis: Jane Nash (1680x1050)

  • $129.99 HIS Radeon iCooler HD 7750 costs $6.29 per FPS
  • $119.99 GeForce GTX 450 costs $6.88 per FPS
  • $119.99 MSI GeForce GTX 550-Ti costs $5.98 per FPS
  • $139.99 GeForce GTX 460 costs $5.19 per FPS
  • $109.99 Radeon HD5770 costs $5.87 per FPS
  • $149.99 Radeon HD6850 costs $6.23 per FPS
  • Test Summary: In the charts and the cost analysis you will notice that the HD5750 sits right between the GTS 450 and GTX 550Ti, it performs on par with the HD5770 and has a cost per FPS very close to that of a HD6850 even though there is a big performance gap between the two. NVIDIA recently lowered the price of some of their mid range cards in an obvious move to be more competitive with this new release from AMD.

    3DMark Vantage GPU Test: New Calico

    New Calico is the second GPU test in the 3DMark Vantage test suite. Of the two GPU tests, New Calico is the most demanding. In a short video scene featuring a galactic battleground, there is a massive display of busy objects across the screen. Benchmark Reviews tests this DirectX-10 scene at 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 resolutions, and uses Extreme quality settings with 8x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. The 1:2 scale is utilized, and is the highest this test allows. Using the highest graphics processing level available allows our test products to separate themselves and stand out (if possible).

    Cost Analysis: New Calico (1680x1050)

  • $129.99 HIS Radeon iCooler HD 7750 costs $9.91 per FPS
  • $119.99 GeForce GTX 450 costs $7.80 per FPS
  • $119.99 MSI GeForce GTX 550-Ti costs $6.75 per FPS
  • $139.99 GeForce GTX 460 costs $5.99 per FPS
  • $109.99 Radeon HD5770 costs $8.05 per FPS
  • $149.99 Radeon HD6850 costs $8.32 per FPS
  • Test Summary: The New Calico Vantage test results show that the FERMI architecture is the more advanced. The performance scaling is as expected, the HIS HD 7750 iCooler takes a bit of a hit in the cost per FPS ratings but at the end of the day synthetic benchmarks and games are a different kettle of fish. Let's move on to the games shall we.

    Your specs on the 550ti are wrong has the same amount cores as a 450 and not 256bit bus
