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.
Since Futuremark has recently released 3DMark11 we decided to run the benchmark at both performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
3DMark11 Performance Benchmark Results:
Futuremark 3DMark11 with the performance preset enabled showed the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified 3072MB having an overall score of P7313 and the ASUS ROG MATRIX GTX580 Platinum at P6984. Once again a difference 4.7%. This is expected as there is a 4.8% clock speed advantage being had by the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified.
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
Running all of the video cards with the Extreme preset didn't really change how the results turned out, but the scores sure did drop. The MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC had an overall score of X1747 in this benchmark.
