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:
When we ran the AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition video card on 3DMark11 with the performance preset we were able to get a score of P9200! Not a bad score considering the Sapphire HD 7970 OC turned in P8560 with the 950MHz BIOS, which is pretty close to a stock card. AMD has really bumped up performance with the increased clock speeds and boost!
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
The extreme setting had similar performance results with card scoring X3106 and that was enough to put it ahead of the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SuperClock card.
