Gigabyte GTX480 SOC Review
3D Mark Vantage
As we saw when we reviewed the Lightning, its really two cards. When stock it's just cool and quiet, but once overclocked its an absolute beast. The Gigabyte in 3D Mark is between those two extremes being better out of the box but just a bit behind when overclocked. We still see some very gaudy numbers though.
Again we can see the performance of the GTX480SOC in 'stock' configuration beating out the Lightning fairly easily. With the overclock applied things are tight between the two cards with the SOC just edging ahead. Considering that it's 35MHz slower than our Lightning overclock it's impressive indeed.
With more image quality the graphs get stretched but the results remain the same. Synthetically at least the SOC is ahead at stock and overclocked. Impressive performance indeed from Gigabyte.
