Testing – Futuremark
I ran a series of benchmarks to check out the performance and stability of the ENGTX260 Matrix. With iTracker on “Gaming” mode, the GPU clocks up to 601mHz, so that is where the GTX 260 is while under load. I also ran them again with iTracker on User Defined Profile 1, which clocks the GPU up to my earlier overclock of 688mHz. For comparison, I also ran the benchmarks on a factory overclocked Radeon HD 4870. Though the HD 4870 is a strong card, I expected the GTX 260 to beat it in most if not all benchmarks. You really never know about the PCMark benchmarks though, since they don’t stress 3D graphics testing. They both seem to give ATI cards an advantage over geForce cards.
