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 our tests in both Extreme and Performance mode just to give you an idea of how the card would run in both environments.

3DMark 11 Performance Benchmark Results:
Benchmark Results: Once again we can see that the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC has come closer to the numbers that the Radeon 6870 put up than the numbers of the 6850. In both the Extreme and the performance presets of 3DMark11 the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC fell right in the middle of the pack, but had absolutely no problem taking whatever the benchmark threw at it.
