XFX HD 4890 XXX 1GB PCIe Graphics Card

Futuremark benchmarks



3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 





 
Results Analysis

ATI cards always seem to do well in the 3DMark series of benchmarks and the 4890XXX is no different. Outscoring it's forbear, the 4870XXX and the stock 4890 as well as beating the GTX285 at all but the highest resolution goes some way to initially prove the XFX 4890XXX's worth.

The card does struggle in 3DMark Vantage though where NVidia cards take the (ad)Vantage through PhysX processing. I still prefer to use Vantage with PhysX enabled as it is a feature of Nvidia cards, much the same as I will also run benchmarks with DX10.1 in favour of ATI (when they appear).

Let's see if this transfers over to our real world gaming benchmarks.

What a strange shape box...

Still nothing groundbreaking. It's getting to the stage where it might just be worth £200 to upgrade form the 8800 series...Quote
