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 showed that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 reference card was able to score nearly 9800 3DMarks, which was just behind the GeForce GTX 590 and well over the AMD Radeon HD 7970 reference card that scored just 8100 3DMarks!
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
After running Futuremark 3DMark11 with the extreme present we again see the GeForce GTX 680 performing really well with a score of X3237. The MSI R7970 Lighting scored X3033, which isn't too far behind, but remember this card is an overclocked Radeon HD 7970 that costs $100 more than the GeForce GTX 680.
