3DMark Vantage & 3DMark 11
3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware. 3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.
The Performance settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1280x1024 was used.
Benchmark Results: The Intel Core i7-3770K finished in third place, which is where it has finished in most of the benchmarks with a solid score of 21293 3DMarks.
Benchmark Results: The GPU score for the Intel Core i7-3770K is the second highest for this test platform.
Benchmark Results: The CPU benchmark results in 3DMark Vantage showed the Intel Core i7-3770K coming in third place again with a score of 26646 3DMarks.
Integrated Graphics Testing
With the AMD Radeon HD 6950 video card removed from the test system we ran 3DMark Vantage on both integrated graphics engines and found a huge difference. The Intel Core i7-2700K processor with the Intel HD 3000 Graphics scored P2343 in 3DMark Vantage with the performance preset. The Intel Core i7-3770K with Intel HD 4000 graphics scored P4313 on the same test. This is a 45.4% performance increase on the overall score of this benchmark!
Since the Intel HD 4000 Graphics supports DirectX 11 you can run 3DMark 11 on the Intel Core i7-3770K processor without the need of a discrete graphics card. We found the 3770K was able to score P776 in this benchmark.
