After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    3DMark Vantage

    3DMark Vantage is a full DirectX 10 compliant synthetic benchmark. It tests out all of the DirectX 10 abilities of each card to give the user an idea of where they rank with their graphic card in a collective pool of many users all over the internet.
    The testing was done with the default performance setting for all of the cards to give an idea where each ones stands in the GPU line up.
    3DMark Vantage is a synthetic benchmark that gives us a repeatable benchmark to determine overall performance.  As our chart shows the GTS 450 in SLI is just shy of being double the performance of a single GTS450.  The thing to notice is how SLI performance compares to a single GTX 470 or even an overclocked GTX 460.

    Now that we have the synthetic scenario let's see how these cards handle a real world gaming situation.
