Radeon HD 4850 and Intel Nehalem Test Results
A very interesting configuration was tested by colleagues from Tom's Hardware Taiwan. Firstly, the graphics card was Gainward Radeon HD 4850 (actually only the name is interesting here, since the card was made at Palit's fab), secondly, the platform comprised Foxconn Renaissance motherboard based on Intel X58 and Nehalem CPU at 2.93 GHz.
Unfortunately, their test method is very different from ours, so a direct comparison would be justified only for Radeon HD 4850 test results. We tested the latter in 3DMark Vantage with Core 2 Extreme QX9650 at 3 GHz (the detailed review is to be published very soon). Note that the Nehalem-based system lost a little, having scored 7,182 points versus 7,260 points at 1280x1024 without AA and AF.
In other tests Nehalem and Radeon HD 4850 scored:
- PCMark Vantage: 5632
- PCMark 05: 9852
- 3DMark 06 (1280x1024): 12786
- 3DMark 05 (1280x1024): 20300
- Crysis: 1280x1024 w/o AA: CPU TEST1 - 33,7, CPU TEST2 - 18,29
