I have only done one for now, but I will be adding more later on today.

I am running a slightly older CPU, but it gets the job done.

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 9400(R0) @ 3.6Ghz
Memory: Mushkin 2x2GB Blackline DDR2 1066Mhz @ 1080
Motherboard: Asus P5Q-PRO

Disk Drive: LG DVD Writer
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB SATA II
Power Supply: PC Power and Cooling 750 Watt Quad Slincer - Blue
Monitor:Dell 2007 WFP

This one was strange, it had higher FPS at stock clock speeds than it did overclocked, I dont know why, but that's how it is.

I plan on running other test like I said, but this is just to give users with slightly older processors an idea what kind of performance to expect from this card. Will also do tests at default CPU speed to see how much if at all we are scaling here.

I think you are seeing a massive bottleneck in with your CPU. I see a HUGE, im talking 15+fps increase in all my benchmarks when I take my CPU from 3.6 to 4.0.

I agree...

However, I think you may have a typo... I think you meant 4020Mhz instead of 2010Mhz for RAM speed... ;)

While this is true, he does mention in the first post that this whole test is to allow people with lower performing, older tech to see what they would be getting into with a 480. :shrug:

Actually GDDR5 is quad pumped not dual. So its really 1005Mhz stock effective 4020Mhz.


none the less, it looked like he was under clocking his RAM from his first post... Showed stock effective speed, then showed a lower speed... did not look right... keep it all the same... Apple to apples...

The OP should essentially posted like this:

(700 / 1401 / 924) OC-(775 / 1550 / 1005)

and then would have looked normal...

However, its advertized as (
700 / 1401 / 3696)OC-(775 / 1550 / 4020)


anyway, the benchies look great!

Jiminy heyhooo, a GTX480 at 1680x1050 with a 3.6Ghz Penryn quad...yikes

Anyway, thanks for the info, that is good for those who buy those cards on old(er) systems.

nice work PhysX, that looks like it took a long time to benchmark and post
thanks, i wasnt able to do it all at once so I did it over 2 days :)

Also just a note to everyone all the benchmarking was done at the highest settings possible so I was able to stress and really work the card to its full potentional, with the cpu i was working with anyway,

Not everyone will have a flagship CPU with a flagship GPU.

I love it!

GREAT JOB!

What video card did you have before?

Just a comparision.... I averaged 52.3fps bf:bc2, with my c2q 9400 @ 3.6ghz, and guru3d managed 63 fps with their cpu ([FONT=verdana,geneva]Core i7 965 @ 3750 MHz) [/FONT]which is only less than 10fps more, also a note...they only testewd at 8x msaa, i tested at 32x msaa

which is not too bad, considering its new tech (the cpu) and closed higher

What settings was the Heaven bench at?
I just ran the bench to compare my system to yours and I got 860
Shaders: High, tess: Normal, Anis:4, AA: off, Res:1920x1080 and DX11 of course

Significant difference from your bench, although he's running @ 1680*1050
