Gigabyte GTX480 SOC Review

Alien vs Predator

Once we're out away from the more synthetic type benchmarks to one that really pounds the whole system hard we see that although minimum and maximum frame-rates are very much on a linear diagonal which just about holds up in the average results, the difference is only a couple of frames between the two full-fat cards.


Crysis Warhead

Warhead is much more variable and really demonstrates how good the GTX480SOC is at stock. 11 FPS ahead of the stock Lightning and only one frame behind the overclocked Lightning! Amazing performance thanks to the excellent power circuitry and chip selection.

Wow it's a very nice job that Gigabyte has done. I'm wondering how their warranty and support will be for GPU's, if it's comparable to EVGA and they bring more non-reference cards like this well... They'll do really well! Comparing this card at stock the the reference card is quite impressive and the work Gigabyte put in, especially with technology that you can't pronounce .Quote
