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 is releasing 3DMark11 today we decided to run the benchmark at both performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
Benchmark Results: The ASRock Z77E-ITX Intel Z77 motherboard was able to edge out the ASRock Z77 Pro3 by 2 points in the Futuremark 3DMark 11 Extreme preset. With an overall score of 2354 3DMarks this mini-ITX motherboard packs a serious punch!
Benchmark results: The ASRock Z77E-ITX was once again able to place itself on the top of the charts in the performance preset of 3DMark 11. It didn’t take the lead over the ASRock Z77 Pro3 by much, only 12 points, but it proves some consistency in the ASRock Z77E-ITX motherboard.
