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: In Futuremark 3DMark11 we are seeing some hefty differences at the Performance Preset. the overall performance of the ASUS F1A75-M Pro came in at 4330 3DMarks while the Intel Platform came in at 5003 3DMarks. The GPU scores were quite a bit closer though. The ASUS P8Z68-V Pro had a GPU score of 4698 while the ASUS F1A75-M Pro had a GPU score of 4551. That is only a 3.23% difference while the overall score showed a 15.54% difference. The Extreme Preset the scores were closer though the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro still had a slight edge with an overall score of 1609 while the ASUS F1A75-M Pro had an overall score of 1547.
