Gigabyte GTX480 SOC Review
Always a tough test of any graphics card, Metro 2033 stresses all of the GTX480s in a way HAWX 2 certainly doesn't. The GTX480SOC repeating its performance of the previous tests even if just by a single frame.
Due to the faster core speed of the stock card the Super Over Clock is a few degrees hotter than the Lightning under load, although still cool and quiet. Once the cards are overclocked the Gigabyte offering keeps up its performance being 3 degrees cooler than the MSI card.
