ok its not my results its linus tech tips (you tube channel) both had fysX on


460 hawk
pre-OC---780 core---1560 shader---1800 memory
OC------962 core---1924 shader---2073 memory

3d mark vantage score--- 21601


480 stock (msi i believe)

3d mark vantage score--- 23033


a difference of 1432

i have know idea if that's a big difference or not and i suck at math so you figure out the percentage difference.

Synthetics... Bleh!

Gimme some Real World comparisons. Thanks.

Doing the math ~7% worse than the 480, so scaling isnt THAT impressive as it increases performance by only 35% for a 43% core boost over stock, but still nice for the fact that it OCs so well.

But Vantage scores arent that reliable.

Get some real world benchmarks and stop worrying about the small difference. You should base your decisions on specs, architecture, and real world performance rather than synthetics.

3d mark doesn't transfer into real world performance??

then why do ppl use it.

Those numbers are way off, AFAIK the 480 does around 19k in vantage at stock clocks not 23k. And Raz is 100% correct, syn. benchies mean nothing, compare mano a mano using in-game benchies that do not incorporate PPU processing if you want more accurate results.

If I get 18.4k in vantage w/ dedicated PPU there is no way in hell the 460 will get 21k.. Must have been a typo confusing 06 with vantage.

I wish I could put this more eloquently, but it's just used to gain a general idea of a system's potential. How that potential translates into actual game performance varies due to how different the 3D engine(s) used in each game is from another, and all of them are different from 3D Mark.

I tried to match his numbers, he had 17,400 for a gpu score
I got 16,900 with ppu and 928 core.

How do you guys go from 16k to 21k in vantage? My last GTX 470 did 20k with 15% OC..

I can only score 18.4k with a 5850 + GTS 250 or 19.1k with the 5850 OC'ed @ 1000/3000 =(

Half joking, but true I guess. Its a synthetic that seems to favor Nvidia and Intel,
though I think the thuban 6 cores push the scores up as well , not sure about that.

Well the reason I asked is because at stock without a PPU I get 16k (matches the guru charts). With a PPU I get 18.4k and with the primary OC'ed + PPU I get 19.1k. I thought it would level out the score as long as I was using a dedicated PPU. No more Vantage or 06 for me from now on...

But what I do find strange is that guru states that a stock 460 w/ quad @ 3.8Ghz gets around 16k, so a jump from 16k to 21k is rather large unless I am missing something here :/

I get well over the 22,000 range on Vantage at all stock speeds, both CPU/GPU, and over 23,000 with just a little OC on the GPU.

People have been really fired up over the GTX460, especially the overclocking potential of the MSI Hawk, but the truth is it is a mid-range card, and performance-wise cannot keep up with the GTX480.

^ Yeah, but the GTX460 is about 1/2 the price of a GTX 480....

Any one got GTX 460 SLI vs GTX 480 benches?

Well that makes my case even worse, how is it that a stock 460 gets 20k and a stock 480 gets 22k?

Why do these numbers differ so much? Here is a review from a user that has done some extensive tests when it comes to the 460 vs the 5850.

I just have the basic version of Vantage, if that makes a difference. As far as I know, I can't switch between Performance and Extreme, so it just runs at default.

Kind of weird, but the review of a system with my card shows much lower scores:

It really doesnt matter but I had a 480 and went with 2 460's recently and I get a 31000 vantage score. With my 480 I was getting 24829
