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 ECS P67H2-A ended up slightly behind the other Intel P67 boards when running Futuremark 3DMark 11. Running in the performance preset, the ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme was 123 3DMarks or 2.7% behind the ASUS P8P67 which is the next lowest performing board, and 3.7% behind the MSI P67A-GD65 which is the highest performing board in the performance preset. Taking a look at the Extreme preset numbers, the ECS P67H2-A Extreme Black once again fell short, including to the Intel P55 System. When comparing the performance to the Intel P67 platforms, the ECS P67H2-A Extreme Black was between 2.9% and 3.8% behind in performance.
