Gigabyte GTX480 SOC Review

FarCry 2

The Dunia engined FarCry 2 follows our earlier results in that the GTX480SOC is better than the Lightning at stock and overclocked. The differences are slight, but they are consistent enough that it's not just by chance.



It's difficult to be too down on any of the cards here as they all bust past the ridiculous 200 FPS mark on average. Despite the ease at which they all run HAWX 2 the differences in horsepower remain as visible as they were in the harder tests. At the risk of endlessly stating the same thing, the Gigabyte Super Over Clock out-performing the MSI Lightning.

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
