Futuremark 3DMark Vantage
We minimize the CPU’s influence by using the Extreme profile (1920x1200, 4x FSAA and anisotropic filtering).
3DMark Vantage reveals the true potential of the new card which is two times as fast as the Radeon HD 3850 and GeForce 9500 GT 256MB which are limited by their 256 megabytes of graphics memory. The availability of only eight raster back-ends is clear when the Radeon HD 4670 is compared with the GeForce 9600 GT. It’s normal because the Extreme profile uses a resolution of 1920x1200 together with 4x MSAA, and the rasterization subsystem has a very high effect on the overall performance in this mode.
ATI’s new solution is 7% and 20% behind the GeForce 9600 GT in the first and second tests, respectively. This could be expected considering the specifics of the tests. The Radeon HD 4670 is far faster than the GeForce 9500 GT 256 MB in both tests, of course. The latter comes at a similar price but has far weaker computing resources.
