Futuremark 3DMark Vantage
We minimize the CPU’s influence by using the Extreme profile (1920x1200, 4x FSAA and anisotropic filtering).
3DMark Vantage is not quite adequate to the realities of the current 3D world, yet it uses modern technologies and makes a good benchmarking tool. The Radeon HD 4830 deservedly has a higher overall score than the GeForce 9800 GT.
The Radeon HD 4830 enjoys an advantage in the first test which abounds in complex computations. The RV770, even in a cut-down configuration, is good at pure computing. The second test shows that the 32 texture processors of the Radeon HD 4830 are indeed equivalent to 56 such processors of the GeForce 9800 GT (well, it is an established fact that this card should be viewed as having 28 texture processors in real applications).
