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: In Futuremark 3DMark11 we can definitely see a difference between the two platforms. Taking a look at the Performance Preset in Futuremark 3DMark 11 the MSI A75MA-G55 and the ASUS F1A75-M Pro are pretty well balanced with only 2 points separating the overall score of 4330 for the ASUS F1A75-M Pro and 4328 for the MSI A75MA-G55. Looking at the Extreme Preset our scores are virtually identical between the APU systems. There is only 1 point separating the two systems in the overall score while the GPU scores show no difference.
