GTX 480 vs GTX460

Recommended Posts

I simply couldn't resist myself: http://www.pccomponentes.com/gigabyte_geforce_gtx480_windforce3_1gb_gddr5.htmlA GTX480 for just 259€ and with the improved cooling system from Gigabyte... just had to do it.So yes here we go again: I'll be running my stupid stutter benchmarks and all to see how it compares to my current GTX 460 1GB in FSX. I'll set two separate benchmarks at 8xS and 8xSQ FSAA + overcast and I also have a wattage meter and will compare power consumptions, even though we can find tons of those comparisons in the internet

Hi,could you include the following AA Mode in your tests "AA_MODE_METHOD_SUPERVCAA_64X_4v12" ? I fell in love with that one and I am currently also on a 1GB GTX 460.Thanks,Markus

I've allready started testing things.GTX460:Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg 9948, 300000, 21, 42, 33.160GTX480:Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg 9981, 300000, 21, 42, 33.270Nothing new, the CPU bottleneck is still there. So I tested with both cards so that they would be running at x8 each. Is FSX so PCIe BW limited? with half the bandwidth here's what my brand new GTX480 could do:Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg 8921, 300000, 20, 38, 29.737It looks to me like it's using just slightly over half the PCIe 2.0 BWWaiting for PCIe 3.0 to make FSX better? good luck with that :biggrin:
