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: And so it continues, the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro proved that even in synthetic benchmarks it can hold its own. Running Futuremark’s 3DMark 11 benchmark, the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro outperformed the GIGABYTE P67A-UD7 by over 250 3DMarks (5.3%) in the performance preset. Cranking up the difficulty of the testing to the Extreme preset, the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro edged out the P67A-UD7 by 37 3DMarks (2.4%).
