3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world’s most popular benchmark for measuring the 3D graphics performance of gaming PCs. 3DMark 11 uses a native DirectX 11 engine designed to make extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11, including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading.
We ran 3DMark11 with both the performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
3DMark11 Performance Benchmark Results:
Benchmark Results: The AMD FX-8350 scored 7373 3DMarks and was nearly 300 points faster than the AMD FX-8150 which scored 7089 3DMarks. The graphics scores of each system were near identical separated by only 2 points, we have to look elsewhere for the differences. Looking at the physics score we can see a difference of just under 900 points with the AMD FX-8350 taking the lead with 7325 3DMarks.
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
Benchmark Results: The AMD FX-8350 managed to hold onto the top spot for AMD processors by a small margin over the FX-8150. Once again looking at the sub-scores in 3DMark 11, we can see that the graphics score is extremely close while the physics score between the two systems is ~700 points.
