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 has recently released 3DMark11 we decided to run the benchmark at both performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
3DMark11 Performance Benchmark Results:
Futuremark 3DMark11 with the performance preset showed that the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC was able to score P3828, which is 270 points higher than the P3558 that we scored on the AMD reference card. This shows a performance increase of nearly 8%.
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
After running Futuremark 3DMark11 with the extreme present we found the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC score X1205. Not a bad score at all considering the reference card scored X1112 and the XFX card scored X1220. Only 15 3DMark points separate the XFX and Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 graphics cards!
