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 Futuremark’s 3DMark 11 benchmark at all three settings and with the default resolutions to see what the difference between the ASUS GTX560 Top and the reference version would be in this synthetic test.
You can see that the ASUS comes through again but the gap does narrow as you get to the extreme level. Remember this is the budget card of the GeForce 500 series so you have to have reasonable expectations even when overclocking.
Benchmark Results: ASUS GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP was 1%, 7%, and 3% faster than the reference design.
