Synthetic Benchmarks

3D Mark Vantage

The extra oomph provided by the extra 35MHz shows up nicely in the performance test, and in the high test we find it close enough to the reference 5850 to allow for differences between runs. Using our overclock we find the card responding well with a huge score boost across the board.


Unigine uses every trick in the DirectX 11 book to give a visually lush display that is so sweet your dentist would complain. It really pushes your whole system hard as evidenced by the frame-rates around the 50 mark.

Zero Anti-aliasing

With Anti-aliasing off we get a good score from the PCS+ out the box, and in keeping with the 3D Mark result the overclock really lets the PCS+ get into its stride.

2x Anti-aliasing

With the addition of anti-aliasing, albeit only in 2x form due to the already stressful nature of the test, we don't take too much of a frame-rate hit. Showing how well the PowerColor scales we get the same loss of performance from the stock result as we do from our overclock. Good all around performance.
