Gainward Phantom GTX570 Review
3D Mark Vantage
There is no denying that whilst the Phantom isn't far behind the standard GTX570 it is, nonetheless, behind it. That's quite a surprise. Of course in the synthetic world of 3D Mark, especially the older Vantage version, this doesn't follow that the real-world performance will mirror this. Also 3D Mark Vantage has always preferred the PhysX equipped nVidia cards to the Radeon hardware hence the HD6970 id definitely lagging behind here.
3D Mark 11
3D Mark 11 is a much tighter affair with all the various improvements it's brought to the table compared to its older brother. The Gainward here really benefits from the memory overclock allowing the shaders to really rock their socks as much as possible and give the gains one would expect. At stock it's much tighter as neither card has an edge over the other.
